104. Percentage of low embodied energy materials
Buffer spaces between the external environment and
air-conditioned spaces to reduce sol air temperature and reducing conductive
solar gain. Deep gravel roofs in some locations that provide kinetic
insulation. Significant proportion of projectile shading to external glass
facades. Balconies to the sloping elevations with overhangs to provide shading.
Where shading is not provided to glazing, a high quality solar glass is used
with low shading co-efficient to minimize solar gains. Low leakage windows,
Enhanced thermal insulation for opaque fabric elements. Dense concrete core and
floor slabs presented to the internal environment in a manner that will level
loads and reduce peak demand with associated reductions in air and chilled
water transport systems. Variable volume chilled water pumping that will
operate with significantly less pump power at part loads than conventional
constant volume pumping. Low-pressure and loss distribution for primary air and
water transport systems that reduces fan and pump power requirements. Total
heat energy recovery, heat wheels of fresh air intake and exhausts to recover
“coolth” from the vitiated air and recover it to the fresh make up air. Energy
efficient, high efficacy, high frequency and fluorescent lighting. Dual
drainage systems that segregate foul and wastewater and allow grey water
recycling to be added at a later date. Connection to the district cooling
system that will allow an order of magnitude improvement on carbon emissions
since in Bahrain efficient water cooled chillier are not allowed due to water
shortage, whereas the district cooling solution will involve sea water cooling
/ heat rejection and much improved levels of energy conversion efficiency.
Reflection pools at the building’s entrances to provide local evaporative
cooling. Extensive landscaping to reduce site albedo, generation of C02 and
provision of shading to on grade car parks. Solar powered road and amenity
The energy building is based on electricity supply and turbine
energy (conventional fuels), therefore the building contributes to the
reduction of ozone-depleting chemicals for this sector. Also the materials and
the environmental design of the building help to reduce the energy needed for
the building’s needs as there are no big energy losses. Also, building
maintenance materials should be carefully selected since they also emit
chemicals that have an impact on the environment.
105. Quantities of dangerous goods imported
a nation comprising more than 30 islands in the Arabian Gulf, has been at the
centre of major trade routes since antiquity imports all the goods it needs
from through its official Ports and airports. The quantities of dangerous goods
that can be imported are if not zero, because some of the goods imported come
from the legal ports and airports. The products that will be used in the building
before and during operation will be the most environmentally friendly and with
the lowest energy consumption, with materials incorporating low energy and with
minimum maintenance costs.
