Gedung Sekolah Vokasi is a five-story vocational school building at Universitas Diponegoro, a public university in Semarang. PT Narama Mandiri assisted Universitas Diponegoro in designing the resource-efficient building.
Gedung Sekolah Vokasi at Universitas Diponegoro has received final EDGE Advanced certification from the Green Building Council Indonesia.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Reduced window-to-wall ratio, reflective paint for external walls, external shading devices, insulation of the roof, natural ventilation for corridors, a variable refrigerant volume (VRV) cooling system, energy-saving lighting for internal spaces, and solar photovoltaics.
Efficient-flush water closets, water-efficient urinals, low-flow faucets, and a grey and black water treatment and recycling system.
In-situ reinforced concrete for the floor and roof construction, steel sheets on steel rafters for the roof construction, autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal and external walls, plasterboards on metal studs with insulation for internal walls, and aluminum clad sandwich panel for external walls.
*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.
