IES Consulting performed the LEED Energy Modelling for the new INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore. The IGCI is a cutting-edge research and development facility for the identification of crimes and criminals, innovative training, operational support and partnerships. Besides a digital crime centre, the complex houses a cyber innovation and outreach directorate, and a capacity building arm. It is all housed in a state-of-the art building conforming to the highest environmental standards.
The IGCI was awarded LEED 2009 NC Platinum Certification. The building which can house up to 350 staff targeted a 35% reduction in energy consumption compared to the baseline building. The building design includes displacement ventilation HVAC systems and a large array of PV panels, which also act as a shading device to protect the roof surface from additional solar gain.
In order to assess performance and document the EAp2/EAc1 pre-requisite and credit, IES Consulting used the IES Virtual Environment software to conduct the Performance Rating Method (PRM) of ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Appendix G.
Additionally the first INTERPOL World, a biennial trade event, took place alongside the official opening of the IGCI in 2015.
