UNDP highly appreciates the energy efficiency of the CONINCO TOWER
On the morning of June 2, 2022, Mr. Patrick Haverman – Deputy Chief Representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Vietnam and a delegation of UNDP visited and worked at CONINCO to exchange results of using the UNDP energy efficiency for the CONINCO TOWER.
Working with the delegation, there were Mr. Nguyen Dang Quang - Deputy General Director, Design Manager of CONINCO TOWER project, Mr. Tran Duc Tai - Deputy Manager of Technical Control Department, Senior Architect of CONINCO TOWER project, Ms. Ngo Thanh Ha – Deputy Manager of Business Management Department; Ms. Huynh Thi Ha - Deputy Director of Building Operation Management Service Center.
CONINCO TOWER project is one of 23 projects selected to participate in the Component of applying and replicating energy saving technology for buildings under the EECB project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to the Ministry of Construction through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), to be implemented in the period 2016 – 2020. The project has the long-term goal of reducing GHG emissions intensity from the construction industry in Vietnam and the direct goal is to improve energy efficiency in commercial buildings and high-rise apartment buildings in Vietnam. Applying and replicating energy saving technology for buildings is one of the three important components of the project.
Talking to Mr. Patrick Haverman, Deputy General Director Nguyen Dang Quang affirmed that CONINCO's participation in the component of Applying and replicating energy saving technology for buildings was a right decision. When participating in the program, the design team of CONINCO and the project's experts calculated solutions from architectural design to choose the best high grade materials in the Vietnamese market, M&E equipment such as: using lowE glass, insulated concrete hollow core walls, high COP VRV Conditioning System, central heat recovery system, low lighting power density with energy efficient LED lights...so that the building can be operated at its best and cost savings for enterprise. Currently, CONINCO TOWER is well appreciated for the air environment as well as the reasonable layout of the lighting, air conditioning system, etc. As a leading consulting company in Vietnam that is also a direct beneficiary of the benefits of energy saving projects, Deputy General Director Nguyen Dang Quang emphasized that the use of energy saving technology is also a factor that creates added value to customers and CONINCO will advise to spread more widely to investors to help form a generation of energy saving projects in Vietnam in the future.
Thanking the welcome of the CONINCO Board of General Directors, Mr. Patrick Haverman - UNDP Deputy Chief Representative in Vietnam shared that the success of the CONINCO TOWER project when participating in UNDP's component of Applying and replicating energy saving technology for buildings is a start to continue future cooperation between CONINCO and UNDP for energy projects. He hopes that the actual results of using energy saving solutions of the CONINCO TOWER project will be shared and replicated. Mr. Patrick Haverman also affirmed that UNDP urgently needs partners like CONINCO to cooperate and promote the development of energy saving and green buildings in Vietnam.
On behalf of the Board of General Directors of the Company, Deputy General Director Nguyen Dang Quang thanked Mr. Patrick Haverman and the leaders and experts of the project for accompanying CONINCO during the implementation of the CONINCO TOWER project for the successful project that is effective in terms of architecture, function as well as business efficiency. The Deputy General Director emphasized, CONINCO is always ready to participate and support UNDP in upcoming programs on energy solutions, which is also the responsibility of a leading construction consulting unit in Vietnam like CONINCO.
At the end of the meeting, the UNDP team of experts visited the CONINCO building and highly appreciated the energy efficiency of the CONINCO TOWER. Hopefully with the success of the CONINCO TOWER project, CONINCO and UNDP will continue to cooperate in replicating the model of energy saving projects in Vietnam in the future.
