The Makassar Branch Office Building is owned by PT. Asuransi Jasa Indonesia (Persero), a state-owned company engaged in general insurance services. The four-story building includes offices and large meeting rooms that are designed to maximize natural light and air circulation. Practical solutions such as an energy-efficient air conditioning system and energy-saving lighting provide cost savings, and environmentally-friendly construction materials help to protect the environment.
Asuransi Jasa Indonesia, which plans to design its future buildings in Indonesia to the EDGE standard, has received a preliminary EDGE certificate for KC Makassar from the Green Building Council Indonesia.
Predicted Savings of EDGE Certification
Less Embodied Energy in Materials
Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system with a high co-efficient of performance, energy-saving lighting in internal and external spaces, and occupancy sensors in open offices.
Dual flush water-closets and water-efficient urinals, and low-flow faucets for kitchen sinks.
Autoclaved aerated concrete blocks for internal and external walls with plasterboards on metal studs for internal 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.
