Melco’s Studio City gets sustainability award

Melco Resorts & Entertainment said its Studio City Phase 2 has been named winner of the ‘Regional Award, Asia’ at the BREEAM Awards, which recognize significant achievements in sustainable development. 

Studio City Phase 2 development’s sustainable features include: Improving thermal properties of the curtain walling system to reduce thermal breaks across its façade system which is an uncommon practice for buildings in the region.

It has been designed to achieve low energy demand via the specifications of high performance building fabric and highly efficient services and systems, including a heat recovery system that captures heat from the cooling tower condensers for reuse within the hot water system.

It has resilience and adaptability to mitigate the risk of natural hazards and to climate change and implements circular economy principles as an integral part of the design process.

We are confident that the project is well on track to becoming an exemplar scheme that demonstrates leadership well beyond the requirements of local and national standards, which will positively impact both the local community and our guests,” said Denise Chen, Senior Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment,

Phase 2 is set to offer approximately 900 rooms and suites as well as world-class non-gaming attractions such as one of the world’s largest indoor/outdoor water parks, a Cineplex, fine-dining restaurants and state-of-the-art MICE space.
