Jardine Schindler introduces the Vertical World magazine

Jardine Schindler introduces the Vertical World magazine specifically for developers, architects, consultants and other professionals in the building industry.

First Issue Reports On Environmental Issues Facing the Building Industry

Jardine Schindler Group (JSG) has published the first edition of its bi-annual magazine, Vertical World.

The first issue of Vertical World familiarizes readers with the current major concern of how buildings; its construction and usage, are impacting the environment. In Hong Kong for example, buildings account for 89 percent of the total electricity consumption. The focus story covers an interview with Mr Kevin Edmunds, the chief operating officer of the Hong Kong Business Environment Council (BEC). Mr Edmunds shared his view about the challenges for developers, building owners and landlords of “going green” with Jardine Schindler.

The initial issue also contains information on the energy-codes implementation across the different Asian countries and articles on how innovative building mobility technologies can contribute in “greening buildings”.
