Posco Green building, Incheon, New Songdo, Korea (Republic of)
Posco Green building
The project was completed in 1 year and 2 months and has been opened in November 2013. It consists of an office building (5 floors, B1~4F, total square of 5571sqm), joint housing building of 5 units (3 floors), 4 modular home units and a PR exhibition hall.
The building was carried out as part of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport R&D project. The approach has been to spread green technology to new buildings and considered environment-friendly and low energy in the processes from design and construction to operation and disposal.
More than 100 green technologies including solar power, geothermal air-conditioning and radiant heating/cooling both in ceiling and underfloor, vacuum outsulation, and ICT (Information Communication Technology) are applied to the building, optimizing energy performance and saving energy usage from 30 to 100% compared to existing buildings. Further, it is an environment-friendly building where approximately 35% of the energy required by the building is self-generated utilizing new renewable energy.
Posco Greenbuilding undoubtedly will be the stepping stone project for Uponor's future business of radiant heating/cooling and it presented an opportunity for Uponor to demonstrate and promote a suitable energy solution as well as optimized inside-building comfort and ease on the South Korean market.
The project was specified and installed by a dependable local partner GSgreentech through the local representative Jooyoung Seo.
Varicool heating and cooling panels were installed to the meeting room's ceiling. The new hydronic system replaced the old fan coil unit system. Varicool system is a radiant heating and cooling system. The panels do not heat or cool the indoor air directly but the surfaces what radiant covers.
Thermal concrete core activation with Uponor Contec provides economical, energy-efficient and sustainable building temperature control in the new landmark Adlershof Science and Technology Centre.
A hygienically optimal drinking water installation was integrated into the new office complex – thanks to Uni Pipe PLUS within a very short time.

La dalle active Uponor est intégrée depuis 2017 dans l’immeuble Delta Green, bâtiment tertiaire de 4600m2 comprenant 4 niveaux. Celui-ci est le premier bâtiment de la région tout à fait autonome en énergie.
Uponor were nominated as the sole supplier for radiant heating systems for the Sunesis Schools schemes, with Main Contractor Willmott Dixon. Sunesis is a Joint Venture between Scape and Willmott Dixon, built on the combined experience of public sector know-how and private expertise. They are the market leader in delivering pre-designed buildings across a range of market sectors. Every design has a defined layout, specification, fixed cost and timescale to construct. The full benefits of a full BIM model are also utilised.
Le bâtiment d’enseignement supérieur et de recherche pour l’Institut Mines-Télécom intègre un système de dalle active sur une surface de 40 000 m2. Le bâtiment économe en énergie accueillera une gamme variée d’activités propres à l’Institut Mines - Télécom : formations, recherches, transfert et innovation.
