The project

Commtech Asia was appointed by GuocoLand to act as an independent commissioning agent, providing LEED commissioning services for the various projects within the mixed-use development — including residential, hotel, retail and office zones. The team ensured that all energy-related systems, such found within the owner’s project requirements and the basis of the design, were installed, calibrated and performing as intended and in line with LEED requirements.

These include green design features such as the energy-efficient lighting and water systems, performance glass façade to minimise solar heat gain, and solar photovoltaic cells to generate renewable energy.

As a result, the office and retail components of this project were awarded LEED Platinum, the hotel development received a LEED (New Construction) Gold while the residential development was conferred with LEED (New Construction) Silver.
