In May 2015, the 24th Big C Supercenter was inaugurated. It is another Big C project that successfully achieved Silver certification following LOTUS Rating Tool for Non-Residential buildings.

Similar to its precedents, the building was designed with numerous green features. Some of them were highly insulated envelope, double-glazed windows, energy-efficient lightings, smart building management system. The commitment to construct more environmentally friendly by having 91% of non-structural wall made up of non-baked materials is also another unquestionable effort.

In this project, once again, Big C design-construction team thrived as a pioneer in greening direction. In addition to exceptional accomplishment in total energy use reduction, water use reduction and local-material contribution, it was awarded innovative points for pursuing long-term benefits. One of them was the air-conditioning system with ice-storage technology for lowering the building’s dependence on the town’s electrical grid. The other was an on-site wastewater treatment plant, which remarkably reduced the total building’s sewer discharge by 74%. Effluent also covered 100% water used for the site’s irrigation.

As a result, up to 2015, Big C has shared the biggest portion in green building market in Vietnam
