Wetland Museum of GuanTing
In terms of energy saving, considering the features of cold area where the museum is located, ring form that has a low shape coefficient is chosen, and high-insulation enclosure system and curtain wall system (exterior wall K=0.29w/m2.k and exterior window K=1.80w/m2.k) are used to minimize energy use. As electricity is the only energy source in the wetland park, suitable VRV system is used for heat and cold supply, and LED lamps are used for lighting. In terms of solar energy utilization, colored film PV corridor and roof solar water heating system are set, with a renewable energy utilization rate of 6.1%.
An elevated overall structure is designed for the building to reduce the impact on the wetland ecosystem. The ultra-low energy consumption design and operation strategy of the building reduce carbon emission throughout the life cycle. The low illumination nightscape lamps and the patterned glass curtain wall can prevent bird strike. The low impact development (LID) designs such as rainwater garden and constructed wetlands as well the high-efficiency sewage treatment system help to reduce water discharge, leading to a water conservation rate of 45%. Steel frame system is used for the building structure, and integrated wall board of high overall thermal insulation performance is used for the exterior wall, with outer surface made of copper-aluminum composite board that changes with time and has a service life of 100 years. The proportion of recyclable building materials used for the building is 20%.
