2 - 你是如何听说TERAO的？你在什么情况下需要TERAO的支持？
Following the request of our client (who recommended TERAO support) to get the LEED Certification for the warehouse used for their products. We are interested in TERAO to conduct a LEED Feasibility Study of the warehouse rented in Shanghai. The goal of this Feasibility Study is to assess whether the current facility can be certified and the potential strategies to reach the targeted level of certification. Then we requested TERAO to provide LEED certification assistance during design, tender, and construction and manage the certification process leading to the obtention of the LEED Gold Level certification.
3 - TERAO是如何为您的项目做出贡献的？
Lux-mate is renting to a client a warehouse in Pudong. As per our client’s sustainable guidelines, this warehouse should be Silver/Gold Certified. Lux-mate was aiming to refurbish this project in order to get the LEED certification. The building is composed of two floors of warehouse with some restrooms and technical areas. The second floor has air-con (VRV on the roof) and the lighting system is composed of efficient LPD.
