SABATA (Sabah Anti Tuberculosis Association ), Sabah, Malaysia
This site was done in partnership with Kinsabina as a CSR project to place four staff quarters within their site as an upgrade from their existing quarters. This design has all the environmentally conscience levers pulled from reducing heat retention, increasing passive cooling and using environmentally sensible materials sourced locally such as recycled timber and steel.
BriSteel provided a quick build system that reduced the use of concrete to only the concrete footing. (Concrete industry being responsible for 5% of glabal carbon emissions). Building structure uses Light Gauge Steel, a material that is 100% recyclable. The structure is 80% lighter than conventional brick and mortar thus further saving on the foundation cost.
