Pearl River Tower
Structure in General
- The building is designed to be 58% more energy efficient than requirements stipulated by local building codes.
- The tower was designed to be the world's most energy efficient super-tall tower ever built.
- The building's orientation was dictated by the direction of the prevailing wind.
- Building has two major mechanical areas where turbines generate electricity from the wind blowing through the floors.
- The sculptured form of the tower helps to direct winds at accelerated speeds to the pair of turbine inlets in each of the mechanical areas.
- The facade system is designed to optimize use of daylight and simultaneously control solar loads.
- The north and south faces utilize an internally-ventilated double-skin facade with automated blinds.
- The east and west elevations have a triple-glazed facade with external shades and automated blinds inside the glazing cavity.
- Photovoltaic panels are integrated into the external shading system and glass outer skin.
- Employs a chilled-ceiling radiant cooling system.
- The building utilizes a raised-floor displacement ventilation system.
- Exhaust air is routed up through the cavity of the double-skin facade to the mechanical floors, where it is used by the ventilation and dehumidification system as an energy source.
- There is a graywater recycling system in place to reduce water consumption.
