Bangkok has faced both COVID-19 and increased pollution from PM2.5 particles in 2020 alone. These occurrences have highlighted the growing need for developers to create commercial spaces that emphasize health and wellbeing while minimizing the impact buildings have on the environment.
No commercial building in the Thai capital has embraced these principles quite like The PARQ. Developed by Kasemsubsiri in conjunction with TCC Assets and Frasers Property, The PARQ is revolutionizing commercial space through green innovation. It is the only office project in Thailand on track to receive both WELL and LEED certification.
On the surface, The PARQ boasts all of the latest innovations you’d expect to find from a modern commercial development. It utilizes triple-layered glass windows that increase the amount of natural light allowed in while reducing energy usage. There is also an LED panel lighting system that provides energy savings of up to 50 percent when compared to standard lighting.
The PARQ is the first building in Thailand to germicide UVC robot and installation of UVC Emitters designed to eliminate bacteria, fungus and reduce the spread of airborne germs. There is an advanced air filtration system that will significantly reduce PM2.5 and PM10. It’s all part of the developer’s commitment to promote wellness through green innovation.
These efforts were honored at the Dot Property Thailand Awards 2020 with The PARQ winning The Special Recognition Award for Green Innovation.
“The Special Recognition Award for Green Innovation is a validation of our vision brought to life – to become Thailand’s leader in Green Innovation and Sustainability. Today, The PARQ is on track to become Thailand’s first LEED and WELL certified commercial building through the successful collaborative development efforts of both TCC Assets and Frasers Property,” Khun Kamolnai Chaixanien, Director at Kasemsubsiri, proclaimed. “We are humbled by this recognition and look forward to continue to raise the standards of Green Innovation and Sustainability in Thailand and beyond.”
With density throughout Bangkok increasing, green innovation will play an important part in ensuring a healthy and environmentally sustainable future. The PARQ deserves special recognition for its efforts in crafting a remarkable commercial project led by green innovation.
