MPE LONG AN FACTORY project has built an educational program to educate and raise awareness of occupants and visitors of the benefits of a green factory. The program includes a comprehensive system of signage showing sustainable features of the building concerning these main factors:
Energy and water savings
LEED INFORMATION SIGNAGE
The signage showing LEED categories will be placed at reception area which is close to the building’s main entrance. It helps generate and raise public awareness and understandings of LEED certification and its core values.
Signage showing reserved space for the carpool parking will be installed in parking area, specifically at designated place as in the as-built drawing of parking area.
Signage showing reserved spaces for bicycle storages (for staffs and visitors) will be installed at designated area as in the as-built drawing.
Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the project. No-smoking policy and signage will be placed at visible and noticeable areas for both employees and visitor. The stamped policy will be placed at the gates while no-smoking signage will be placed at the building’s entrance and indoor areas such as parking area, corridors, toilets, common areas, etc.).
ENERGY AND WATER SAVINGS
Green signage and labels encouraging energy and water savings will be properly placed around the project. Energy-saving signage and labels will be placed near light switches. Water-saving signage and labels will be placed in either public or private bathrooms and water closets.
Waste label will be placed on waste bins on each floor, for three types of waste: non- recyclable, recyclable, and hazardous waste. Recyclable waste label system includes five different types such as paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, and metals. Hazardous waste labels include batteries and e-waste labels. The label system will bring employees and visitor a view of how waste is sorted and collected, and waste classification is as simple and easy as everyone can do this.
