ES Office building compelling with LEED & WELL & EDGE & ASHRAE and Tarshed.

ES office building is designed to be part of its local and citywide environment and to make a responsible contribution globally, Abdelhamid Ezzat hope it will set the standard for office design that is Net Zero Carbon and achieves the wellbeing of its occupants at the fore. We are looking forward to bringing it to fruition.

The building offers 22,200 square meters of leasable office space as well as shared spaces for tenants, including a meeting room, service spaces, a pantry, and restrooms. With bright colors, some green touches in the interior spaces, and warm wooden accents, the space looks and feels clean and efficient. With HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and lighting systems all engineered for optimal performance, the indoor spaces work with occupants to be energy-efficient and comfortable.

To reach its goal of energy positivity, the building introduces numerous sustainable strategies, many inspired by Passive strategies, and Islamic architecture. The combination of everything from daylighting to efficient building systems makes the office incredibly energy-efficient despite a stringent construction budget. Compared to similar commercial buildings, We set a plan to reduce its energy consumption by 42%. Meanwhile, it will generate 100% of the energy it requires.

The design process for a Net Zero building starts from a good study for the project site to make use of all possible points in the site and continues through the decisions taken during the various design stages.

To this end, we made a site study to determine the strengths of the site that can be used in the design of the project, and this helped us in the formation of the block in general, as we found that the main façade of the project faces the north direction, which is the direction of the good winds, which forces us not to put a block in this rib, but the dilemma was that the north side is the main façade and entrance to the project, as well as the façade that enjoys indirect lighting from the sun’s rays, so the idea of emptying the block from the middle was to allow the winds to enter the heart of the project and ventilate the spaces while taking advantage of the advantages of the north direction.

The strategy is to block direct sunlight and guide it around the mass, creating a shaded plaza in the center of the project for activities and to minimize the urban heat island effect, using the shaded roof for the activities area, and take the advantage of shade and shadow with wind direction to increase airflow inside the project that will enhance the thermal performance of the building, air quality and minimize solar heat gain.

The design process goes through many steps, all those steps seek to create inner spaces that have thermal comfort for activities and to minimize energy consumption.
