Sustainability Initiatives at [email protected]

The project teams at [email protected] are committed to delivering a sustainable future for all our stakeholders and we recognise the importance of being accountable for what we take, what we create and what we leave behind.

The sustainability initiatives at [email protected] are listed below.

Energy-saving initiatives

  • Atrium daylighting design to maximise the use of sunlight, minimizing requirement for artificial lighting during the day

  • Use of low-E double glazed glass on the long facades facing North-South to optimise HVAC loads and enhance occupant comfort

  • Integrated design of rooftop car-park to act as a natural heat shield into the centre

  • Escalators that go into slow-down mode when not in use during lower peak period

  • Gearless lift system coupled with AC VVVF drive, with the lifts also featuring light weight decorations and sleep mode

  • Energy-efficient lights and intelligent lighting control systems in the common areas



Escalators slow down during low-peak periods. LED lights light up the steps for enhanced visibility.

 

On-site energy generation

  • Solar panels on the roof to harness the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity which is used in the centre
