This is a discussion about this project in the ArchNet Digital Library:
i am a student who is doing an analytic survey on sustainable buildings. and i wanted to know whether the prudential tower has its own power generator to produce some amount of power for the building, and whether the principles of energry (operational and pre-constructional) was considered when the building was designed (during the design phase)
Mariyam, I assume you mean does the building have energy collectors of some type (ie wind, sun, thermal)to power the electrics in the building?

yes... that and whether life cycle assesment of the materials were considered during the design stage.
