Bangkok is now home to Thailand’s first LEED-certified green residential building.
The global green building program rewards design, construction and operation of green buildings.
There are currently more than 38,600 commercial and institutional projects are LEED-certified in more than 167 countries and territories.
Sansiri’s 98 Wireless has become the first-ever residential project in Thailand to receive such recognition.
Uthai Uthaisangsuk, Chief Operating Officer, said” “It is one of our proudest moments to be qualified with such global recognition as a certification by LEED green building program.”
“We built 98 Wireless under the theme of “The Best Comes as Standard” and it can be true literally only through our hard work of making each residential unit a sustainable one and the one that adds more quality of life to the lives of our residents.”
98 Wireless was LEED-certified last month, having undergone quality inspection in seven major aspects, including sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and Atmosphere, material and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation and regional priority credits,
Uthai concluded “To be LEED-certified is truly a great start for 98 Wireless. It gives a new definition to the word ‘luxury’. In the past, luxury means meticulous design and decoration, best selection of world’s renowned brands and materials with best service offering and so on.”
“We hope to see more residential projects being LEED-certified to prove that Thai developers are putting their hard work in building projects that are energy saving and environmentally-friendly, just like developers in other countries have done.”
