Leadvisors Place is a 9-story office building located in Hoan Kiem District in eastern Hanoi, Vietnam. A retrofit of an existing building was used as the base of the project, which was developed by IDS Equity Holdings, a leading distressed assets investment company in Vietnam. The company has committed itself to the vision of moving forward to a sustainable future as a pioneer in applying international sustainable development standards across its commercial project portfolio, from hospitality projects to office and serviced residences buildings.
To meet these commitments to sustainability, energy and water-saving technologies were incorporated into the design, construction and internal processes of the building. Insulation of external walls, low-E coated glass, an energy-efficient HVAC system and LED lighting reduce the building’s energy use, while water-efficient plumbing fixtures reduce its water use. The re-use of existing building parts such as floor slab, roof, and internal and external walls, the developers were further able to substantially lower the energy embodied in construction materials, resulting in a lower carbon footprint.
Leadvisors Place has received a Preliminary EDGE Certificate from SGS Vietnam.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Insulation of external walls, low-E coated glass, variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system, and energy-saving lighting for internal and external spaces.
Low-flow faucets and water-efficient urinals for bathrooms.
Re-use of existing floor slabs and roof construction, re-use of internal and external walls, and re-use of existing flooring and window frames.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
