Lamex goes green

LAMEX, a wholly owned subsidiary of HNI Corp, became the first office-solution provider to receive Gold Certification for commercial interiors with LEED (LEED-CI) in China.

The showroom is located in Tangxia manufacturing center in Guangdong Province with a display area of over 1,394 square meters.

LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a green building rating system developed by the US Green Building Council and is the internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

Lamex collaborated with Gensler's Shanghai office to create a multitude of sustainable design elements and practices, including lighting, use of materials (painting, recycled materials, etc) and indoor air quality, to create a modern and lively workplace.

To consume less power but create effectively lighting to showcase the Lamex product was a challenging task. The designers used a combination of efficient lighting fixtures and existing large windows to achieve the lighting requirements for the showroom. Energy-efficient HVAC systems were installed to achieve the desired level of fresh air circulation and CO2 sensors were installed to measure the level of indoor quality.

"From its inception, our goal is to create a showcase that would exhibit key elements of our sustainability leadership," says Peter Chu, Lamex president. "Lamex is committed to sustainable development and we take our responsibility to protect the environment seriously.

"In addition to the showroom space, our products and our manufacturing processes also reflect our commitment to the environment," Chu says.
