The current workforce is constantly adapting to the changes in order to meet the rapid demands of the advancing world, and so are the buildings and infrastructure. With sustainability becoming a bigger issue in the Philippine corporate landscape, there is a pressing need to build more green buildings, a need that big property players are filling in. These eco-friendly offices have various sustainable systems to help bring down its carbon footprint, while also offering multiple benefits from a business standpoint. A game changer in the architectural field in the Philippines, it is a floor, all-glass building with low-emissivity Low-E glass system that helps lessen solar heat gain while maximizing natural light. It has a dimming system to adjust the intensity of the light; and heat, ventilation, and air conditioning HVAC system to regulate outside air flow ensuring superior indoor air quality.

8 considerations and solutions in green architecture
Major disasters like Typhoon Haiyan, Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, and earthquakes in Japan, Pakistan and Haiti are a wake up call to remind designers that we always need to keep the long-term picture in mind when we design, preparing buildings to withstand possible disasters as well as more mundane long-term wear and tear. As climate change turns our attention to the possibility of increasingly likely disaster scenarios, resilient design serves to remind us to design for durability over time. The local environment always plays a critical role in determining the factors that make a building resilient or not, and so resilient design is always locally specific.
