TREES (Thai’s Rating of Energy and Environmental Sustainability) is an assessment by the Thai Green Building Institute (TGBI). For new construction (TREES-NC) there are 8 key categories: building management (BM), site & landscape (SL), water conservation (WC), energy & atmosphere (EM), material & resources (MR), indoor environmental quality (IE), environmental protection (EP), and green innovation (GI).
TREES ratings are given in “Platinum”, “Gold”, “Silver”, and “Certified”. A “Gold” classification is outstanding for a condominium building.
TGBI launched TREES to help guide the construction industry to design and construct architecture that is environment friendly and can increase occupant well-being and productivity comprehensively. Buildings using this rating system are expected to consume less energy, have less environmental impact, and produce less pollution while increasing quality of life for their occupants.
Whizdom’s impressive environmental record also includes a TREES “Gold” for Whizdom Avenue Ratchada-Ladprao, a 27-story condominium at Ladprao MRT Station.
