The FHL Commercial Tower is an 18 Storey high rise “Green Building” situated in the middle of the Suva Business District. This iconic addition to the city of Suva consists of commercial space, offices and recreational functions hall at top storey.
Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) seeks to create buildings that lessen the environmental impacts of the built environment, that save money, and that result in healthier environments in which to live, work and learn. Achieving this relies on the whole life cycle of a building – its design, construction, commissioning, operation and eventual deconstruction – being considered from the earliest project stages. Buildings that embrace this approach are often called ‘Green Buildings’.
The design of a green building involves selecting the most appropriate of these ESD initiatives as well as others that may arise, to create a cost effective, high performance, healthy building. The design intent for the Fijian Holding LTD (FHL) Tower project is to make this a green building that demonstrates good practice in sustainable design principles and meets several key environmental objectives which would reduce the overall life impact of the building on the environment. This includes reduction in overall carbon emissions and environmental impact, siting and structure design efficiency, energy efficiency, water efficiency, material efficiency and waste reduction.
