Sustainability

DUO Tower is Green Mark Platinum rated, the only building in the micro-market to be certified as such. It is being constructed with an effective construction and demolition waste management program, with a certified Green Mark manager on the project team. Tenants will be provided with a user guide, highlighting best practice use of the building’s green features.

With direct access to Bugis MRT Station, covered walkways to major bus routes and 66 sheltered bicycle parking lots, DUO Tower offers many environmentally friendly options to arrive and leave work.


ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHT FITTINGS
The use of special fluorescent and LED lights, along with motion control and automatic lux level adjustment, save on energy.
SOLAR HEAT REDUCTION
The honeycomb façade and balcony act as natural sun shading, which together with the high performance glazing significantly reduce solar heat gain.
ENERGY EFFICIENT LIFTS & ESCALATORS
The lifts are equipped with a regenerative lift system which has the capability to capture waste energy generated from the lift motor when it slows down (brakes) and feed back to the building grid for re-use in other utilities. Furthermore, the lift cars will be installed with LED lighting and sleep mode function which will allow the ventilation and lighting in the lift car to be turned off when there are no calls for the lifts. The escalators with slow down feature will also be implemented in this development.
WATER USAGE MONITORING
A combination of rainwater harvesting and private sub-meters provide class leading water management.
GREEN ROOF
The level 1 roof of the building and amenities are covered with extensive greenery, providing shading and reducing the heat island effect which translates to energy saving for the chiller systems.
NATURALLY VENTILATED RETAIL CORRIDOR
Designed to allow cooling land breezes to permeate the development, reducing energy consumption and bringing the outdoors, indoors.
LUSH GREENERY PODIUM
100% landscape replacement reduces temperature whilst increasing oxygen levels in the building’s vicinity.
OTHER ENERGY EFFICIENT FEATURES
Heat recovery air conditioning units, ductless fans for basement ventilation, along with motion sensors for the escape staircase, half landings and common toilets provide further efficacies.
