The Viet Land Investment Consulting and Construction Joint-Stock Company (VILANDCO JSC) was established in 2007, initially with architectural design consulting, interiors and construction consulting works as the main areas of activity. The company aims to ensure harmony between humans and the natural environment in any project they undertake. VILANDCO is currently a champion member of the Viet Nam Green Building Council (VGBC), a non-governmental organisation established with the objective of promoting the development of energy efficient and environmentally friendly buildings in Vietnam.
Since the beginning of the Green Building movement in Vietnam, VILANDCO has been involved to become one of the leading specialist consulting firms in Vietnam. We have in-house software and simulation capabilities as well as experience in certification and the latest Green Building trends and strategies.
Since 2015, VILANDCO has been appointed by Designbuilder Software Ltd. (UK) to be Reseller for Vietnam's market which includes sale, technical support and software training for clients in Vietnam. Designbuilder software is an advanced energy modeling tool with easy-to-use interface. This enables the whole design team to use the same software to develop comfortable and energy-efficient building designs from concept through to completion.
With the high rate of urbanisation and economic development, buildings are having an increasingly heavy impact on the environment in Vietnam. In line with worldwide trends, stakeholders in the building construction sector are gradually recognising the shift towards the strengthening of green building regulatory framework, as well as the increased marketability, increased health and comfort and even the long term monetary savings for Green Buildings.
A Green Building is designed and managed to reduce its overall impact on human health and the natural environment by:
1. Efficiency; in consumption of Energy, Water and other resources
2. Protecting occupant health, comfort and productivity
3. Reducing; waste, pollution and environmental degradation
For this reason “Green Building” projects cover a wide scope of issues to be considered from design through to operational stage.
There are many reasons why we can recommend Green Building design. The first and most obvious reason is our responsibility protecting the environment for our own benefit and even more so for future generations. However, there are also tangible benefits in the immediate and short term for developers and building owners. It is important to note, the extra cost for a green building is smaller than what is generally perceived (overseas research suggests 0-12.5%, where 12.5% was for a zero carbon building) and the first few Green Building projects in Vietnam are showing that the cost of Green Building is following these overseas trends. Green Building Benefits include:
So even from a monetary perspective, Green Building has been shown to have reasonable returns on investment, to save in the long run on operational costs and also give developers and building owners a significant edge in this competitive market.
