Harn Office Building achieved DGNB Gold certification!

Harn engineering is one of the leading companies in refrigeration and air-conditioning in Thailand. Harn wanted to have a landmark project to demonstrate their products and services as well as show their dedication to sustainability.
Accordingly, EGS-plan created a sustainability concept in close cooperation with the project architect Acharawan Chutarat which comprises features such as ecological and healthy building materials, excellent thermal comfort and air quality, reduced water consumption, handicapped accessibility, and a flexible media infrastructure like a grand number of receptacles and internet connections. The lighting concept features innovative approaches like extensive daylight use and power by ethernet lighting. Besides an energy-efficient VAV system, there will be one experimental room with floor cooling and chilled beams. Part of the energy demand of the building is covered by a photovoltaic system which also shades the glazed atrium in the center of the building.
The building has achieved DGNB Gold certification with an excellent 67.7% fulfillment score.
