“Building green buildings and sustainable residences are our company’s DNA. We are a partner of the IFC World Bank Group’s EDGE certification program. We are proud to be committed to certifying all of our properties with multiple green building labels. We have dedicated green building experts who analyse each project’s resource efficiency and help develop environmentally, economically and socially sound buildings,” said Alex Buechi, Partner Asia Green Real Estate.
“This is the first Citadines property in Jakarta that brings the green building concept to your doorstep. We applied several technical solutions in this building, including Low-E laminated double glass, LED bulbs, a VRV Cooling system and multi-split AC for energy savings. The building also uses efficient water fixtures, less embodied energy in materials, and installed high-efficiency air filtration systems to maintain safe levels of indoor air quality such as Particulate Matter (PM) 2.5.”
Citadines Sudirman Jakarta obtained EDGE certification3 from the Green Building Council Indonesia. The property is projected to achieve more than 20 percent energy savings, more than 35 percent water savings and use 50 percent less embodied energy. Citadines Sudirman Jakarta is the first Ascott property in Indonesia with a high-quality air filtration system within the building. Via the building’s air filtration system, external air from outside will be filtered before being piped into the building, delivering clean air to the building occupants within.
