Sustainability as the Core of PETRONAS New Leadership Campus Project
The PETRONAS New Leadership Campus Project team is responding to the pledge towards a sustainable future, starting with its main construction site office, also known as The Cubic. The project’s aspiration to achieve double-platinum certification by Green Building Index (GBI) and LEED USA resonate strongly with the PETRONAS Sustainability Agenda. The journey towards Platinum certification is further solidified by unlocking another milestone through achieving the Platinum at Design Stage by GBI Accreditation Panel.
Sustainable building features are embedded in the thought design of The Cubic. It is built with refurbished intersected container cabins to facilitate air movements and equipped with Photovoltaic Solar Panels, which can cater to the energy demand of 73 KWp. In partnership with VERITAS, a multi-disciplinary architectural design firm, structures such as the workstations are outfitted with salvaged and reused items and materials. The Cubic is also equipped with a rainwater harvesting system for lavatory and irrigation usage.
Sustainability efforts are also incorporated into the scope of works, such as the emphasis on “3R – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” on materials used, communications of grievance procedures in various languages to workers, engaging with the local community on the operation of canteens, and also engaging in sporting activities with consultants and contractors.
The purpose of the Campus is to “Inspire Leaders to Grow.” With featured spaces that encourage social collaborations and innovative learning experience in support of PETRONAS work culture. It also embodies the sustainability essence in support of PETRONAS Sustainability Agenda.
