Tatung integrated the group’s R&D capabilities, introduces smart building solutions with various smart systems and energy saving solutions, and combined with its subsidiary Shan-Chih Development to build “Tatung Manor Phase I”. “Tatung Manor Phase I”, which is certified with Green Building Label – Gold Level, is designed in accordance to Green Building Label Guidelines such as biodiversity, greenery, water content of the site, daily energy conservation, CO2 emission reduction, water conservation, and sewage and waste disposal facility improvement. The summary is as follows:
Indicator Design summary
  • The base of the site contains various of large and small trees, shrubs, and ground cover plants. There are many bushes, grassland areas, ecological islands to provide habitat for small creatures.

  • The site has about 7,000 M2 of green space and planned variety of native plants. It also has ecological ponds to attract insects, birds, and frogs to inhabit so that the residents can enjoy the natural atmosphere at home.
  • Around the site, the plants are planted with wider intervals and consists of trees and ground cover. Part of the area are greenery with high density and multi-level greening methods such as planting shrubs or ground cover plants under the trees.

  • Planting various of plants for greening to attract birds and butterflies in the natural soil layer, on the roof, and the area with artificial soil covering. The plants are not only able to produce oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide, purify the air and reduce heat island effect.
Water content of the site The “Tatung Manor” case achieves the water conservation in the base through “green space, covered land, grass water retention”, “permeable pavement design”, “rainwater interception design in garden soil”, and “water retention design on seepage side of trench”. The better the water retention, the better capability for the base to absorb water. The moist soil is able to increase the survival of small organisms which is beneficial to the activities of micro-organisms in the soil, thereby improving the quality of the soil, nourishing plants, increasing biodiversity. Such designs are great to the environment and reduce heat island effect.
Daily energy conservation
  • The building is mainly oriented north-south to reduce the heat from sunshine at east-west. At the same time, most of the spaces (e.g second bedroom, dressing room, toilet or working balcony) that not requiring a lot of windows are placed at east-west side of the building. In addition, roof gardening is used to further increase the insulation coefficient.

  • Use window opening method to ventilate and save energy without affecting indoor function.
CO2reduction Use architectural design techniques to plan the appearance of the building (with more shading area) and use lightweight, durable, and non-metal recycled building materials to reduce CO2.
Water conservation
  • Using water saving equipment with Water Label.

  • Recycling rainwater from rooftop (650 tons capacity) and watering the garden to save water resource.
Sewage and waste disposal facility improvement In this site, all the sewage pipes in the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry are connected to the sewage treatment facility. The site also has a temporary garbage pre-treatment storage facility (refrigerate or compress) and airtight trash box.
