There’s a rising tide of all things green in the officing world—and business centers are following suit. Business centers aiming to differentiate themselves from the competition are more often locating in eco-friendly buildings and promoting the green advantage to eco-conscious tenants.
So, ask yourself a question: Is your business center green enough? It might not be, if you are competing with the likes of Servcorp in Asia. Servcorp recently opened the doors to a new premium business center location in the heart of Bangkok—in Asia’s first energy saving and green business landmark park.
Servcorp is among the newest residents at Park Ventures’ Ecoplex on Witthayu, a prime Central Business District location that has direct access to the Ploenchit BTS sky train station. From there, business center tenants get easy access to banking and business facilities, as well as a range of in-house amenities like the Sky Lounge & Restaurant, the five-star Okura Prestige Hotel, a swimming pool and a gym.
But it’s the green features that are turning many heads. The Ecoplex on Witthayu was developed from the philosophy of balancing innovative construction and tenant quality of life. The Ecoplex is the first top to bottom Energy Saving and Green Building in Bangkok. The eco-driven building components aim to enhance working stamina and inspire tenants to reach their goals.
This is truly the greenest office building in Bangkok. It offers low e-costing glass, natural light balancing sensors, grey water reuse, Co2 sensors, system variable air volume that adjusts air conditioning temperatures to actual temperatures at a specific area, and a building automation system that controls and monitors energy consumption.
Beyond all the green bragging rights, the 34-story building also boasts stunning views over Bangkok’s skyline. This is an ideal location featuring world class meeting rooms, boardrooms and secretarial services from a trusted international business center brand. So, again, is your business center green enough? Not every business center can locate in the likes of The Ecoplex, but every business center can put into place green practices that help the environment and attract green-minded tenants.
