SkyParks Business Centre (Malta International Airport): ENERGY EFFICIENCY SkyParks Business Centre is investing in the highest level of energy efficient systems for:  air conditioning  air ventilation  heat recovery units  vertical transportation  plans to maximise energy conservation whilst limiting wastages in lighting systems  Water circulations and sanitary ware. In doing this SkyParks intends to ensure an improved internal environment with high indoor quality. SkyParks has developed an environmental policy which it intends to promote as part of its work ethic. This includes sustainable construction as well as minimising negative impacts on the environment that result from their activities. It also mentions that all employees will receive training and awareness to ensure that emphasis is placed on the protection of the environment and cleanliness and care on site. BREEAM CERTIFICATION SKyParks Business Centre was assessed by the internationally recognised BRE (Environmental Assessment Method) and awarded the eco-friendly certification. Being BREEAM certified, SkyParks Business Centre became Malta’s first Grade A office park, setting new standards in construction, design and building management for green practices. It has become the de facto measure used to describe a building's environmental performance. The building has obtained high credit rating in the category of Water, specifically for water recycling with a large rain water reservoir built for rain water catchment as well as a low-water irrigation system which will be used for landscaping. The carefully thought out space available for tenants both within the building and outdoors further boosted the building's credit achievement in the health and well-being category as did the glare control shading systems for the windows.

13th Floor Apartment - Fort Cambridge
Property type: multiflat house
Status: completely finished
Penthouse - Fort Cambridge: Fort Cambridge is one of the last forts of the 19th Century situated in Tigne Point peninsula and was specifically built to accommodate one of only four produced 100-tonne guns by the British Army. Fort Cambridge PLC submitted an application to the Malta Environment and Planning Authority (MEPA) for the restoration of the Fort Cambridge battery which was recently approved. The restoration will be carried out by tradesmen and architects from TBA Periti under the supervision of architect Prof. Alex Torpiano. ENERGY SAVING MEASURES Energy saving measures - Lighting 1. Energy efficient lighting in landscaped areas, service areas, common areas, fire escape stairs, parking areas and in other ancillary areas. High efficient fluorescent (FL), compact fluorescent (CFL) and other types of energy saving lights will be used. The advantages of these include: a. High luminous output for lower wattage b. Lower heat emissions. This would create a lower heat demand on air-conditioning and ventilation systems, thus, also lowering energy consumption. 2. 10 photovoltaic panels will be installed on the roof. Each consists of a two kilowattpeak panel and these will be used to power the lighting of ten apartment common areas. The total installed power is twenty kilowattpeak and at 1550 annual solar hours, these would generate a total of 31,000kWhrs. 3. Localised power factor correction equipment is to be installed in order to compensate for unused reactive power that is consumed by most of electrical motors and energy saving lighting systems. The installed system is designed to eventually null this unused component of generated power. 4. Building Management Control System which will monitor all equipment in the building and be able to assess what is unnecessarily in operation. 5. Presence Controlled Lighting Schemes: all lighting facilities and all public areas, common areas and car serving parking level are to be controlled by presence detectors and there will be no need for manual intervention. 6. Photocell Control Lighting Schemes for External Lighting: all external lighting will be controlled via a photocell unit which will ensure that artificial lighting will be activated only during periods of low natural illumination. Apart from energy saving, advantages also include: a. Non-dependence on time, which varies from season to season b. Significant impact on maintenance and lamp replacement interventions 7. Control of Lighting and Equipment in Ancillary Areas: all power consumption will be de-activated during ‘no-activity’ time. This will mainly include presence detectors in storage and service areas which will control lighting, ventilation and other services. Energy Saving Measures – Other 1. The Passengers’ Lifts which were selected are those of the most energy efficient lift machine on the market. 2. Water Cooled Air-Conditioning Systems: individual air-conditioning systems for each apartment will consist of water cooled outdoor units. This type of system presents several advantages: a. Reduced use of refrigerant gas which is harmful to the environment and responsible for the increased greenhouse effect. b. Water cooled air-conditioning units have a 21% higher COP (Coefficient Of Performance). c. The outdoor unit can be accommodated much closer to internal units, thus, eliminating the long copper pipework routing between the outdoor unit and the indoor units inside the apartment resulting in significant energy savings. It is also planned that during mild weather conditions, which are estimated to constitute to up to 40% of the year in Malta, heat extracted from residential premises requesting cooling, is recovered and transferred to premises requesting heating. 3. Pressurised Water System: water storage shall be at apartment level rather than at basement level. This will assure that sufficient water pressure will result without the need for properly sized pressure pumps for each apartment. Instead, only a small pump is required to provide adequate water pressure to each residential unit. 4. Ventilation of underground Car Parking Areas: all underground areas are designed to be naturally ventilated without the intervention of mechanical ventilation. This was done by creating openings and shafts that will serve for natural ventilation. In low wind periods, however, long axial fans have been installed to provide adequate air circulation. 5. Second class water will be used for cleaning and irrigation purposes in the landscaped areas. Rain water and greywater will be collected from balconies and terraces, stored in the reservoir and minimally treated before it is used. 6. Water Heating Through Heat Recovery: heat recovered from the air-conditioning cooling water will be used during hot weather in order to heat the indoor pool. 7. Natural ventilation of service rooms using the method of cross ventilation (by openings at opposite high and low ends). The rooms will be thermostatically controlled and mechanical ventilation will only be activated when maximum desired temperature is exceeded. 8. Envelope insulation plays an important role in the energy requirements to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. This comprises of three main components: a. Walls which are covered by a 30mm thick insulating layer of extruded polystyrene, type EPS 120, classified and certified to EN 13501 Euro Class E that had high insulating properties. b. Ceilings and roofs will be covered with a 50mm layer of insulated material identical to one specified for exposed wall. c. Apertures to exposed areas will comprise of an aluminium frame equipped with thermal break and double glazed, the latter which comprises of a 6mm and 6.38mm panel with a 14mm gap filled with 10% air and 90% argon. Additional, one panel has a face treated with Guardian Sun Guard HS Super Neutral protective coating.

This dwelling is currently being constructed by J M Vassallo Vibro Blocks Limited using the EVG-3D Construction System. It is a cost-effective construction system offering a well proven building method using high strength, load bearing modular panels. The EVG-3D Construction System consists of panels with a layer of galvanized mesh on either side of an EPS core, welded together by galvanised steel diagonals (trusses) which penetrate through the EPS core. The panels are joined in the desired configuration on site and sprayed with concrete to form a sandwich type construction. Strength and rigidity of the panels result from the diagonal truss wires welded to the cover mesh layers on each side of the panel combined with the concrete layers, thus ensuring the effective transfer of the shear forces for a full composite behaviour. Lateral forces are absorbed most effectively by the EVG-3D shear walls. The EVG-3D Building System provides a robust system that has a high resistance to hard and soft body impacts likely to be associated with normal residential and commercial use situations.
