Bachelor of Electrical and Electronics Engineering students from SEGi University recently visited the Energy Commission Diamond Building in Putrajaya to learn about sustainable building concepts. The 36 students and 8 lecturers who attended were exposed to the building’s four main aspects of sustainable design: energy efficiency, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and outdoor environmental quality.
Delegates were shown the building’s iconic diamond-shaped dome, which was designed to meet the expected daylight and energy performance.
