The Integrated Forest Farming Learning Centre (IFFLC) is one of the buildings located in the Faculty of Forestry, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. It is part of the university program that develops buildings with the highest standard of learning environment, comfort, and safety. The IFFLC focuses on research and education to develop the Integrated Forest Farming System (IFFS), which integrates different fields of farming systems, including agriculture, veterinary, husbandry, and forestry.
This EDGE Advanced building has technologies such as photoelectric sensors for lighting, LED bulbs, along with water efficient fixtures and a rainwater harvesting system. The walls are all aerated concrete blocks.
The Integrated Forest Farming Learning Centre has been awarded final EDGE Advanced certification by Green Building Council of Indonesia.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window to wall ratio, external shading devices, insulation of external walls, energy-saving light bulbs for internal and external spaces, photoelectric sensors to harvest daylight.
Low-flow showerheads and water-efficient faucets, efficient flush water closets, water-efficient urinals, condensate water recovery and rainwater harvesting system.
In-situ reinforced concrete floor slabs, clay roofing tiles on steel rafters, autoclaved aerated concrete blogs and in-situ reinforced walls for external walls, autoclaved aerated concrete blocks and plasterboards on metal studs for internal walls, vinyl flooring.
*Part of the energy efficiency percentage may be associated with virtual energy for comfort depending on the presence of heating and cooling systems. Note that virtual energy does not contribute savings to utility bills.
