Two building projects of EGS-plan awarded for their innovative Energy Concepts!

On 30th of October two projects of EGS-plan were awarded by GTCC (German-Thai Chamber of Commerce) for their innovative energy concepts at the residence of the German ambassador in Thailand.

The first project was the Pruksa+ project which is a single-family house with an external shading concept, internal thermal insulation and outstanding airtightness. Fresh air is supplied by decentralized ventilation systems with energy recovery. A 5kWp photovoltaic system is combined with an ice storage to store solar energy and use it for air-conditioning in the nighttime.

The second project was the new headquarter of Dhannarak Asset Development, which is a 3511 m2 office building. The windows are shaded by overhang fixed shading and vertical louvres, which are automatically adjusted to the sun’s position. Fresh air is provided by a fresh air handling unit with an enthalpy rotor to reduce ventilation cooling demand by more than 70 %. Cooling energy demand is provided by district cooling and about one-third of the energy demand is covered by solar energy from a 125 kWp PV system.

Both projects were already awarded with the Platinum certificate of the German Sustainable Building Council DGNB. The medals were handed over by GTCC’s Executive Director Dr. Roland Wein and H.E. Ambassador Georg Schmidt.
