Theconstruction of smaller buildings Thebuilding can be considered enormous, but the interiors are shaped in smallerareas because of the use of the property. This allows the rooms to operateautonomously.
This means saving energy for cooling or heating.This is notthe case for the single premises of the property, which are also high ceilingsas a result of the energy loss, since in order to warm the ground floor youhave to warm up in the rest of the rooms. Also, large spaces often survive undesirablyand the extra costs they spend could be more constructive. Quality oflife Theproperty assists in the quality of life as it creates jobs for the personnel ofthe whole project as well as for the external collaborators who provideservices to the building. Some of theServices that gives job opportunities to the people · 24-hourreception· 24-hourmaintenance· 24-hoursecurity· Valetparking service· 1,000dedicated car parking spaces for office tenants· Amix of high-end restaurants and casual cafés· BusinessCentre facility · Five-starSheraton Hotel· Fitnesscentre· Carrental service · Commercialbanks Those facilities offerconfidence and luxury time for the reason that everything that a tourist orpeople in general needs is there. From quality time with the family or withfriends to the cafés, bars, restaurants to entertaining or business time withthe hotel and shops. The whole design of thebuilding and the area, give the impression and feeling to people of somethingbeautiful and calm.
Environmental Design Principles Sustainabilitywas the main idea that was incorporated from the starting point. In its plan,the Bahrain world trade Centre exploits the area to amplify the energy that canbe caught from the ocean breeze. One of a kind to this building, and meetingpeople’s high expectations of incorporating sustainable power sourcearrangements with manageable engineering, the plan accommodates these three 29mdiameter wind-turbines to be placed horizontally between the two towers. The research,the dialogues with the turbine makers earlier, the feasibility study and designstages took months. The technical confirmation incorporated the consolidationof environmentally responsive outline components such as the wind examinationof turbines execution and also SARM (Safety, Analysis and Risk Management)examination approval.
Theturbines create energy that reaches the amount of 11 and 15 percent of thetotal electrical utilisation of the building. As aresult, this innovating achievement was the world’s first combination ofturbines inside a commercial building structure is considered as a triumph. The Bahrainworld trade Centre building has other environmentally responsive outlinecomponents, which decrease carbon discharges in the atmosphere compared withmost of the structures in the district. That made Bahrain to be recognised asthe leader in the adoption of environmentally responsible practices among theregion. Theenvironmental aspects of the project create a new way of building withsustainability and what can be achieve in the future and more generally, theexhaustion of non-renewable energy sources. As a result,Bahrain has built up the first of its kind inside the market, and added totheir capital esteem programs that will be developed around this point ofconvergence on Manama’s coast. Beside thebreeze turbines, it includes various other design features that are of interestand reduction of carbon discharges when compared with different structures inthe Middle East.
Some of those features are: COPYPASTE 1. Bufferspaces between the external environment and air-conditioned spaces to reducesol air temperature and reducing conductive solar gain;2. Deepgravel roofs in some locations that provide kinetic insulation;3. Significantproportion of projectile shading to external glass facades;4.
Balconies to the sloping elevations with overhangs to provide shading;5. Whereshading is not provided to glazing, a high quality solar glass is used with lowshading co-efficient to minimise solar gains;6. Lowleakage, windows;7.Enhanced thermal insulation for opaque fabric elements;8. Denseconcrete core and floor slabs presented to the internal environment in a mannerthat will level loads and reduce peak demand with associated reductions in airand chilled water transport systems;9.
Variable volume chilled water pumping that will operate with significantly lesspump power at part loads than conventional constant volume pumping;10. Lowpressure loss distribution for primary air and water transport systems thatreduces fan and pump power requirements;11. Totalheat 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;12. Energyefficient, high efficacy, high frequency fluorescent lighting13. Dualdrainage systems that segregate foul and waste water and allow grey waterrecycling to be added at a later date;14.Connection to the district cooling system that will allow an order of magnitudeimprovement on carbon emissions since in Bahrain efficient water cooledchillier are not allowed due to water shortage, whereas the district coolingsolution will involve sea water cooling / heat rejection and much improvedlevels of energy conversion efficiency;15.
Reflection pools at building entrances to provide local evaporative cooling;16.Extensive landscaping to reduce site albedo, generate C02 and provide shadingto on grade car parks;17. Solarpowered road and amenity lighting.OzoneFriendly Since theenergy building is based on electricity supply and turbine energy (conventionalfuels), we understand that the building contributes to the reduction ofozone-depleting chemicals for this sector.
Also the materials and theenvironmental design of the building help reduce the energy you need for thebuilding’s needs as there are no big energy losses. Also, building maintenancematerials should be carefully selected since they also emit chemicals that havean impact on the environment. Economic Background of the Wind-Turbines into buildings IdeaAnd the Benefit of gaining experience from such project to the worldAtkins(Architectural engineering company) showed the world that Bahrain is focused onchoices that reduce the demand on fossil fuel reserves products. Bahrain holdsand will move urban and building design in dessert-climates to a whole newsustainable course. The difficulty of incorporating huge scale wind turbines ina building structure isn’t to be underestimated, and it is expected after thecompletion of such project that the information and experience gathered wouldbe able to be spread to design groups worldwide. In the sameway as other architects around the globe, the Atkins design team in the MiddleEast has considered plan arrangements that fuse sustainability and haveexplored the idea of using integrated wind turbines on a few past design ideas.
The wind in the Arabian Gulf with its prevailing ocean wind trademark ishelpful for collecting wind energy. Research byAtkins has revealed that the usage of wind-turbines into structures most of thetimes fails because of the high cost (up to 30% of the project’s value) relatedwith the adjustment of the building design, and furthermore because of highdevelopment/research work costs for such turbines. From the start this venturehad as its essential premise of design the usage of customary technologies andthe improvement of a building design that would be supportive to gettingwind-turbines. The premium on this project for including the wind-turbines wasunder 3% of the project’s value.
So with theadvantage of a good/strong wind and a design reasoning that limited turbinebuilding costs, Atkins, with a group of world driving technologists moved aheadwith the plan and addressed the key issues of : 1 Producingpractical solutions 2 Balancingenergy yield (advantage with investment) Moregenerally, while achieving such innovating ideas (incorporation ofwind-turbines onto structures) then a lot of things are affected from it. Socially,people tend to think more about sustainability by seeing the successful resultof the Bahrain World Trade Centre and with that way, a lot more can be achievedin the following years.
