IES Consulting performed LEED Energy Modelling on the new Interpol complex in Singapore.
IES Consulting performed the LEED Energy Modelling for the new INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore. The IGCI is a cutting-edge research and development facility for the identification of crimes and criminals, innovative training, operational support and partnerships. Besides a digital crime centre, the complex houses a cyber innovation and outreach directorate, and a capacity building arm. It is all housed in a state-of-the art building conforming to the highest environmental standards.
The IGCI was awarded LEED 2009 NC Platinum Certification. The building which can house up to 350 staff targeted a 35% reduction in energy consumption compared to the baseline building. The building design includes displacement ventilation HVAC systems and a large array of PV panels, which also act as a shading device to protect the roof surface from additional solar gain.
In order to assess performance and document the EAp2/EAc1 pre-requisite and credit, IES Consulting used the IES Virtual Environment software to conduct the Performance Rating Method (PRM) of ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Appendix G.
Additionally the first INTERPOL World, a biennial trade event, took place alongside the official opening of the IGCI in 2015.
