GBCE sustainability consultant for winning bid design of International Airport City Project U-Tapao

Green Building Consulting & Engineering as Consultants

GBCE are the sustainability and green building consultants for the winning bid design and have worked as part of the Technical Advisors team to the BBS consortium.

 

We joined the team alongside Varda Associates as Technical Advisors for the BBS joint venture composed of Bangkok Airways, BTS Group Holding and Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction (STEC). In that role, GBCE has consulted the consortium on sustainability and green building design aspects for the master planning, passenger terminal, commercial gateway and ground transportation hub.

" We are very proud of being part of this project and to contribute in uplifting the project's positive impact regionally by embedding sustainability, energy efficiency and green building concepts into what is to be a key business center for Thailand." 
- Armelle Le Bihan, Founder & CEO of GBCE

 

Airports are the first impression on arrival to a country and a manifest display of its values and cultural heritage. Placing sustainability at the core of their infrastructure of a prominent business center does not only demonstrate environmental responsibility but also exhibits leadership in promoting a greener way of doing business.

 

The signing ceremony was held on Friday the 19th of June 2020 at the Government House and presided by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.
