Healthcare Facility (Confidential)
Green Building Consuling
Green Building Consulting & Engineering participated in a pretigious competition for a new Healthcare Institution in Bangkok. As Green Building consultants, we paired up with Archetype Thailand, design firm in Bangkok to propose a state of the art, functional, aesthetic, high performant and environmentally friendly facility.
Architect: Archetype (Thailand)
Gross Floor Area: 24,000 m²
Facilities: 2 clinical buildings, 1 car park
Project stage: Design
Green Building Consulting for high performance building level
Building's Relationiship with its environments study
Solar exposure and radiation analysis
Orientation and mass optimization through Building Physics Studies
Natural Ventilation feasability analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamics
Solar PV potential and estimation
Capturing the light, harnessing the energy
We analyzed the project's potential to harness energy through solar panels and capture light through sky domes to supply the building with natural light during the day and free artificial light at nightime.

Removing the heat
As overheating is a major issue in a tropical city like Bangkok, we put an accent on ensuring that we did not bring unwanted heat into the building. The envelope is protected by the integration of efficient shading devices, green facades and roofs and high performance windows.
To further emphasize this cooling effect, we studied the buildings orientation and shape to enhance natural ventilation within the building group corridors.
