Broad Sustainable Building : Building A Sustainable Hotel in 360 Hours


In December 2011, China’s Broad Sustainable Building Company built a “T30” 30-story hotel prototype in 15 days. Despite the time constraint, Broad managed to lower construction waste and to increase the building’s sustainability.

The main reason construction is so rapid is because much of the building is assembled in factories before being shipped to the construction grounds. According to Julia Jiang, VP of Broad Group, “93% of the hotel is in our factory… down to lights and the kitchen sink.” Overall, this process takes 45 days, but there are benefits. A “Lego” approach reduces outdoor pollution and safety hazards- there is no welding or cutting. The construction pollution generated is 1% that of a standard hotel project.

The inside is sustainable, too. The T30 is energy efficient due to the addition of four pane windows and 6-inch (15 cm) exterior thermal insulation. Jang says these measures will “reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2,000 metric tons a year based on savings in electricity.” There are no sacrifices on the customers’ part, either: the heat recovery powers the triple filter air purifier. Broad has also made the hotel magnitude 9 resistant to earthquakes, more proof of its commitment to safety.

This is the 12th Broad project to be completed in Lego fashion. In the future, BSBC hopes to build a low-carbon community. The $1.6 billion (USD) project would accommodate up to 100,000 people and include public service and commercial buildings. “Anyway, many buildings are coming,” assures Jiang.

IBS : WIRA KERJAYA SDN. BHD.

Wira Eco Building Systems (WEBS) is an innovative concept developed by Wira Kerjaya from years of research and experience in the construction world. The idea is best summarize as follows:


With its unique technique, WEBS, we strive to be a global player in this new and challenging world of construction.

WEBS Green Concept


WEBS stresses on the concept of green construction and sustainable building hence creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource efficient from the first stage right to the final stage. We achieve this through:-


  • Efficiently using energy, water and other resources.
  • Protecting occupant health and improving employee’s productivity.
  • Reducing pollution, waste and environmental degrading.


WEBS Framing Systems

Wira Eco Building Systems (WEBS) utilizes three main components for the framing system, mainly the RHS/SHS, self tapping screw, as well as the revolutionary WEBS connector.


Utilizing the combination of the three, WEBS was devised to be a method ensuring a system that meets your requirement in designing and erecting a sustainable designed structure.

IBS : O-Stable Panel Sdn. Bhd.

The O-Stable Panel System is a prefabricated system created for versatility to suit any layout and design required by the Architect.

An enhancement on conventional systems, this latest pre-cast technology from O-Stable Panel Sdn Bhd, allows luxurious homes with attractive architectural designs to be constructed faster and with almost zero defect.

Our Technical Advisor, Mr. Khoo Tian who invented this system, likens it to the flexibility of toy building blocks, theO-Stable Panel System has attractive architectural features such as arches, round columns and comices that can be incorporated into the design of any type of houses.

Its special built-in feature allows free flow of air into the house (cross & vertical ventilation), thereby converting outside hot air into cool air.

This system provides some degree of comfort without air-conditioning and has been evaluated and documented by University Technology Mara (UiTM). Our associated company Baktian Sdn Bhd has entered into MOU with UiTM for continuous improvement of performance through instrumentation and measurement.

This is also good in accordance with the 'Feng Shui' principle, as it brings harmony and tranquility into the house.

LANDSLIDE : HULU LANGAT TRAGEDY



Source: Al Jazeera and agencies

At least 20 children feared buried after landslide hits their orphanage south of the capital, Kuala Lumpur.

At least three children were feared dead and 24 others buried in Malaysia after a landslide hit their orphanage, Malaysian police said.

The incident took place on Saturday at about 2:30pm (0630 GMT) in the village of Hulu Langat in central Selangor state, just south of the capital Kuala Lumpur.

Al Jazeera’s Divya Gopalan, reporting from Kuala Lumpur, said there were dozens of children present in the orphanage when the landslide hit, all younger than 18 years old.

“The latest number we were given by police says that 24 children are trapped, three are dead and six rescued,” our correspondent said.

Firefighters and villagers pulled out six survivors who were critically injured and they were rushed to a hospital.

A police officer said heavy rainfall had likely caused the landslide. He said rain was still falling and hampering rescue work, which would last until nightfall.
