This commercial office building is located 20 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur. Project development was handled by the Gapurna Group, one of Malaysia’s most successful construction and development groups. Panasonic had worked with Gapurna before, supplying security cameras for Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) during the airport’s second phase of construction. On that project, Panasonic was commended not only for providing the products but also for offering a one-stop design and installation service through Panasonic System Engineering (M) Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Panasonic Malaysia. The Gapurna Group therefore had no hesitation in looking to Panasonic when it began construction of this new office building. The building owner asked for the VRF system to be integrated with the building management system (BMS) via the BACnet communications protocol, and Panasonic complied accordingly.

Air Conditioning for a Large Floor Area
Using four-way cassette air conditioners and a mixed-mode ventilation system allows us to enhance indoor air quality and thus provide our tenants with a comfortable office environment. The building has a large floor area, but we are able to cover this large area with an energy-saving Panasonic VRF system.
