If you had to do it again?

In terms of green construction: the structures and materials demolished from old buildings were piled up on site, taking up a significant amount of space, and there are dust problems and health and safety issues. Solution: Cooperate with construction waste recycling companies, and optimize construction schedule to minimize the time that building space is occupied by on-sites wastes.
In terms of energy system operation: the lighting control area is too large, resulting in energy waste when only a few people are present after work. Solution: Designate certain areas as "overtime zones" for building users off work. Implement property inspection and management during off-hours.

Building users opinion

The indoor temperature is maintained in the range of 20~24 degrees throughout the year, ensuring a comfortable environment for people. There is no phenomenon of "overheating in winter and overcooling in summer" in typical office buildings due to the "over-design" of air conditioning system. All spaces are free of draft, with even temperature distribution.
After the project was completed, air quality testing was carried out, and all indicators met the most stringent international standards. The indoor air is fresh and clean. There is no feeling of suffocation in a closed meeting room for a long time.
All workstation areas in the project make full use of daylighting. In case of insufficient daylight, individual artificial lighting fixtures can also automatically adjust the brightness to provide comfortable desktop illumination and relieve visual fatigue.
The project is located on the east side of the Shanghai Outer Ring Road, approximately 50m away. The Outer Ring Road experiences heavy traffic, resulting in significant background traffic noise at the project site. Under such conditions, inside the building, the highest noise level of the offices and meeting rooms adjacent to the traffic line of the outer ring is less than 35dB This ensures that normal work can proceed without any disturbance. Noises generated by air-conditioning equipment inside the room is also unoticable.

    • Average indoor temperature and humidity in typical seasons

    Summer :temperature 24℃-28℃; humidity 50%-70%

    Winter: temperature 18℃-22℃; humidity 30%-50%

    • Hot and humid environment control measures

    This project employs a high-comfort, low-noise, and energy-efficient indoor environment system based on temperature and humidity division control to promote healthy living conditions., using floor type dry air tray and ceiling radiation system to regulate indoor temperature. The radiation ceiling uses cold/hotwater closer to ambient temperature to bear the sensible heat load. This technology enables precise control of indoor temperature and humidity, maintaining indoor humidity levels between 30% and 60%, while controlling horizontal and vertical temperature difference within a narrow  range to prevent uneven heating or cooling, thereby enhancing comfort.

    In addition, the radiation terminal and the healthy replacement fresh air system can be directly installed on the main structural floor of the building or integrated with interior decoration modules, achieving a high level of integration of green, healthy and environmentally friendly living environment. The fresh air is continuously supplied into the room through an air outlet located on the ground of the main functional area. It first spreads along the floor, and then gradually envelops human bodies as it is heated by working electrical appliances and body heat. In this indoor positive pressure environment , hot exhaust gas exhaled by people is carried away by the fresh air and expelled through upper exhaust port. This method of downward and upward air circulation guarantees that every breath taken by office workers is purified and refreshed, creating an atmosphere akin to a "fresh air lake"

    The four-effect fresh air fan utilized in the project employs condensation heat recovery technology to recover energy from exhaust air, while simultaneously reheating supply air temperature. This results in a  comfortable supply air temperature for dehumidification without cooling. At the same time, the fresh air is deeply dehumidified and delivered into the room through a dedicated pipe, while floor-level air supply ensure thermal comfort and enhances indoor air quality in the office spaces.

    • Building user comfort evaluation

We utilize 120 series thermal break aluminum alloy double-layer composite windows, featuring a three-glass two-cavity hollow glass structure with Low-E coating and argon gas filling on the exterior side, while adopting 5mm single pane glass for the interior side. The design optimizes the external enclosure structure and improves the sound insulation performance, making the insulation against air-borne sound of the external windows up to 42dB, the door insulation performance of the office unit up to 45 dB,and the floor insulation performance of the conference room up to 58 dB.

    The interior is equipped with a sound-absorbing ceiling, carpeted floors, and walls in the meeting room covered with sound-absorbing fabric. Office seats are upholstered in cloth and suede materials. Background noise levels in both the meeting room and open office area measure less than 40 dBA, the reverberation time is tested to reach 0.58 s and speech transmission coefficient is > 0.5.

    At the same time, vibration damping measures are adopted for the air-conditioning equipment on the basement floor , and rubber vibration damping mats are installed on the unit. Spring vibration isolation is used for the equipment installed on roof. The air duct muffler meets the requirements of the national standard, and the floor-standing fan is equipped with damped spring vibration isolation in the form of mixed steel and concrete hybrid vibration-isolation inertial pedestal.
