Menara Etiqa Tower
The Etiqa Office Tower is an office development comprising of a 35-storey office tower with an 8 storey podium car-park located on a site of 50,000 sm along Jalan Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The project is seeking two sustainability certifications: gold certification under the Green Building Index (GBI) and platinum certification. Key features required to achieve these certifications include energy efficient mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and fixtures, renewable construction materials and sustainable site development.
This building has a simple daylight harvesting strategy that makes use of existing building solutions without increasing development cost to the owner. This solution addresses the concern of speculative office building developers that is highly sensitive to additional cost required for green features in a building. The daylight harvesting strategy proposed was based on addressing glare from two distinct sources; due to direct sunlight and due to the bright tropical sky.
