Posco Green building, Incheon, New Songdo, Korea (Republic of)
Posco Green building
The project was completed in 1 year and 2 months and has been opened in November 2013. It consists of an office building (5 floors, B1~4F, total square of 5571sqm), joint housing building of 5 units (3 floors), 4 modular home units and a PR exhibition hall.
The building was carried out as part of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport R&D project. The approach has been to spread green technology to new buildings and considered environment-friendly and low energy in the processes from design and construction to operation and disposal.
More than 100 green technologies including solar power, geothermal air-conditioning and radiant heating/cooling both in ceiling and underfloor, vacuum outsulation, and ICT (Information Communication Technology) are applied to the building, optimizing energy performance and saving energy usage from 30 to 100% compared to existing buildings. Further, it is an environment-friendly building where approximately 35% of the energy required by the building is self-generated utilizing new renewable energy.
Posco Greenbuilding undoubtedly will be the stepping stone project for Uponor's future business of radiant heating/cooling and it presented an opportunity for Uponor to demonstrate and promote a suitable energy solution as well as optimized inside-building comfort and ease on the South Korean market.
The project was specified and installed by a dependable local partner GSgreentech through the local representative Jooyoung Seo.
