AECOM Pushes the Boundaries of Environmental Sustainability for Asia Square
AECOM provided engineering and consultancy services for Asia Square in Singapore — developing a building estimated to produce energy savings close to six million kilowatt-hours per year.
Currently, cities consume 75 percent of the world’s energy, and in many cities, commercial buildings use the majority of that energy. At AECOM, creating project designs that meet client needs, as well as help reduce the negative impact humans have on the environment, is of primary importance.
Selected to provide engineering and consultancy services for Asia Square in Singapore, AECOM’s building engineering team set the standard for a high-technology, low-energy building producing an estimated energy savings of close to six million kilowatt-hours per year. Situated in the Marina Bay business and financial center, the development comprises two high-rise office towers, a five-star hotel and a retail complex with dining and public entertainment features.
“By integrating a high-performance glass façade, air quality technologies, and a number of energy and water efficiency techniques, Asia Square will be one of the region’s most-efficient commercial developments to meet current and future demands for environmentally sustainable green office space,” said AECOM’s Vincent Tong, vice president, building engineering, Southeast Asia.
