M-Building Commercial Office Tower
The developer of the M-Building Commercial Office Tower believes in the importance of green buildings that lower operational costs and reduce their carbon footprint. Designed by Fossup with green building solutions by Ardor Green, the M-Building Commercial Office Tower is located in the Phu My Hung urban area of District 7 in Ho Chi Minh City, where it is available for lease by the 4M Joint Stock Company.
The 10-story office building has many green features including an energy-saving lighting system, heat recovery from exhaust air to improve ventilation, a low-E double-glazed building façade, and autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for both internal and external walls. The office also significantly reduces water use by up to 57% with low-flow faucets and efficient water closets throughout the building.
The M-Building Commercial Office Tower has received final EDGE certification from SGS Vietnam.
