Mission

  • 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.
