The GreenAsia Group assisted a new 3 million square feet mixed-use Development in Yangon, Myanmar to identify solutions aimed at achieving long-term sustainable development.

The key findings and recommendations identified by the Charrette working groups covered:

  • Green building certification & social engagement
  • Dynamic Simulation Modeling
  • Facades including site layout optimization and thermal performance
  • Low-pressure cooling system concepts to reduce energy consumption from mechanical ventilation
  • Chiller plant system efficiency to be better than 0.60kW/RT
  • Highly efficient transformers with loads sized correctly
  • Architectural planning & Interior Design issues to optimize lighting

Projected savings that could be achieved for this new development are:

  • S$21m in CAPEX
  • S$10m in OPEX

Participants included representatives of the client, along with the selected architectural and engineering companies. Two working groups presented their recommendations for improving system performance during 3 plenary sessions following their separate small group discussions.

The TGAG team consisted of Vinod Kesava, Eng Lock Lee, Huston Eubank, Prof David Strong, Simon Thomas, Kes Shotam, Bradley T. Gardner, Jasper Gardner and Carolyn Kenwrick.
