The prerequisite criteria for the smartest buildings in the world
According to a report by Research Gate, traditional buildings have had many negative impacts on the global environment as buildings consume up to 40% of total energy and emit CO2. equivalent. In the US, up to 73% of electricity is consumed by buildings. In Europe, nearly 30% of the total waste generated comes from waste materials and waste from building or demolishing buildings.
This poses an urgent problem: how can we reduce the harmful impact on the environment as demand for buildings increases? The answer is to apply new technologies to solve the problem of energy efficiency in buildings. This is also an important component that makes up the concept of “smart building” in the world.

Now, building smart buildings is not just about increasing the density of trees, but also saving energy, reducing negative impacts on the environment. Since then, the standards for ranking works through energy consumption, helping to classify construction quality and encourage sustainable development were born.
One of the most prestigious certifications is the LEED, issued by the Green Building Council of America. This is a globally prestigious rating system that evaluates the design and performance of green environments in buildings, based on energy saving factors and environmental protection, in order to maintain air quality. circulation in the building, low emissivity materials, safe for users. In the 10 smartest buildings in the world, up to 7 buildings are LEED Platinum certified – high level on the LEED scale.
TechnoPark Tower: Green design meets the high evaluation criteria
Not out of the trend of using energy in the world, Vietnam has been making efforts to make “green living” and “energy saving” become a weakness in the development process. Many documents were issued, for example the Law on Economical and Efficient Use of Energy No: 50/2010 / QH12 passed by the National Assembly in 2010 and came into effect from 01/01/2011.
But building a true “green” building requires a great deal of effort, not only in aspirations but also in real implementation capacity.
Located in Vinhomes Ocean Park, TechnoPark Tower is developed with the orientation of becoming “a smart office building in a smart city”.
Just launched with outstanding designs up to LEED Platinum standards, TechnoPark Tower continues to affirm its mark on the international arena when it meets the standards equivalent to smart buildings in the world. gender
The tower owns a green density of up to 25%, equivalent to more than 2,600m2 and open space 30%. Thanks to that, the staff working at the building can relax, re-energize at the “relaxing garden in the middle of the air”, chat and rest at the seats or walk in the green hallway.
Not stopping at design, materials used in the building are also selected according to strict criteria, ensuring both energy saving and creating a healthy working environment for users. The entire exterior of the building is covered with 26mm thick Low-E energy-saving box glass which effectively prevents heat transfer from the inside out or from the outside to the inside. As a result, the temperature in the building is always kept stable, regardless of winter or summer.
TechnoPark Tower also uses materials such as adhesives and adhesives, paints and coatings, flooring, industrial wood … to reduce the concentration of chemical pollutants (VOC) that can affect air quality, air human health, productivity and the environment. Inside the building, the garbage storage area is divided into basic recyclable, hazardous and non-recyclable; both help users to easily sort waste, while raising the sense of recycling and the level of environmental protection.

Always putting energy optimization and sustainable development at the forefront, TechnoPark Tower applies thoroughly solutions to optimize energy sources: rainwater systems are collected to the storage tanks for irrigation and work. sanitary, solar cell system is equipped with the whole building to create green electricity …
In particular, TechnoPark’s design ensures to minimize the problem of light pollution, for example the facade lighting system is automatically turned off from 12pm. Along with that, more than 75% of areas where people work regularly are inspired by natural light, helping employees feel more excited and focused, thereby increasing productivity and efficiency.
With the goal of creating a user-friendly and environment-friendly living and working environment, TechnoPark Tower will become a new technology icon, converging businesses with a common vision of developing a smart work environment. , lasting.
