In the Philippines, the eventual return to the physical offices seems inevitable as businesses and companies move to recover and help restart economic activities. With the re-entry in mind, more developments are focusing on sustainability and pandemic-proofing their workplaces to guarantee the protection of public health and wellness.
JEG Development Corporation (JDC) is one of the green developers that has envisioned, prioritized, and built spaces that have its occupants’ needs and comfort in mind. JEG Tower @ One Acacia has state-of-the-art green features, earning them a LEED pre-certified Silver accreditation, and a nomination for Best Office Development in the 8th Property Guru Asia Property Awards.

One of its main features focuses on improving office mobility and decongesting key common areas in the building. Through technology, JEG Tower is equipped with Mitsubishi Destination-Oriented Allocation System (DOAS) elevators to ensure strategic and safe movement within the building. These elevators are integrated with the installed turnstiles that allow for a unique lift assignment, making it easier to contact trace and assures a less crowded lobby.

This also adds another layer of contactless protection to the building as it reduces the need to press a button for a car call. Through the automated assignment, the allocated car only has one destination, allowing for reduced waiting or time, and energy efficiency.
Study shows that DOAS technology is a good control system to conduct crowd control or group movements. Destination-controlled elevators have better overall handling capacity that can transport more people effectively, and passenger transfer times are also made faster with a set delivery route.
Transitioning to Safer Workplaces
The green recovery has posed many benefits or advantages, especially in the post-lockdown business landscape. Data shows that it is a consensus among organizations that remote working is only a temporary solution. Recalibration in safe office builds and design needs to settle on a sustainable new normal that allows for a hybrid workforce and distributed workplace.
In line with the shift to sustainable adjustments and habits, experts believe that urban mobility is also expected to improve especially in highly-dense metropolitans. Like JEG Tower @ One Acacia, similar properties should be accommodating for alternative modes of transportation as people look for a more green or efficient way to move around.
