Materials used during the construction phase have been chosen for their sustainable qualities, minimizing the impact they have on the environment. These materials consist of a high ratio of recycled content, reducing negative environmental impacts arising from the extraction and processing of virgin materials. We have also consciously sourced building materials and products that have been extracted or manufactured within 805 km of the project site. As well as helping to support indigenous resources this significantly decreases environmental impacts resulting from transportation. President Place is proud to pioneer this new way of developing and we hope to set the market standards for future developments.

Environmentally-friendly developments are emerging all over the world. President Place is one of Ho Chi Minh City’s first environmentally conscious building developments and is pursuing the LEED Gold Certification which will recognize that it has met Grade A, international environmental design standards. The project employs various active and passive systems to acheive it’s green standards. Roof top rice paddies reduce the air conditioning costs and return clean air to the environment and a low energy-loss glass minimizes solar heat gain and lowers energy loss.

The project also uses sensors and time operated energy efficient lighting and ventilation monitoring systems to ensure maximum efficiency. Bicycle racks & storage, shower & changing facilities, parking spaces for low emitting vehicles & fuel efficient vehicles and carpool/ van pool all work together to discourage individuals from driving to work.

Highest quality facility components have been selected to reduce chemicals and contaminants in building. Not only do all of these design aspects minimize the impact on the environment, they also result in a reduction of operating costs for the tenants.
