Philippines: Campus to be the country’s 1st LEED Gold-certified for BPO buildings


Megaworld’s 8 Campus Place Building A in McKinley Hill in Taguig City was recently recognized as the country’s first LEED Gold-certified building for Business Process Outsourcing (BPOs) companies.

LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design. It is a green building ratings program developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and is the most widely accepted green building rating system worldwide.

“Megaworld remains committed to creating communities that promote sustainability for the environment and maximizing the use of land,” said Jericho Go, senior vice president, Megaworld. “We develop a masterplan where residential, commercial, and office towers will be in one secured location while we are building environment-friendly structures. Expect more green office towers in the years to come in the company.”

The 8 Campus Place Building A, which is now occupied by American bank, Wells Fargo, is the first LEED gold certified project under the LEED for Core & Shell category in McKinley Hill.  8 Campus Place is made up of three 5-story buildings with a total leasable floor area of 30,000 sq. meters.

Some of the building’s sustainable features include the use of double glazed gas-filled insulated (Low-E) glass to reflect the sun’s heat away from the building, and reduce the air conditioning need inside the building.

Construction materials contained more than 30% recycled content and the project earned a bonus point by using over 30% of locally available materials produced within the Philippines.
