The building has incorporated a series of green features including the adoption of a large number of precast components and post-tensioning structures to reduce material usage, one of the first buildings utilising the District Cooling System for central air-conditioning system, use of solar collectors to provide hot water, installation of PV panels and rainwater harvesting.
