BCA Academy - Academic Tower



Smart campus and living lab

The Project


Beyond just a teaching facility, the BCA Academy - Academic Tower offers an experiential learning environment. Features such as exposed pipes, an education deck with a chiller plant and green lab demonstrate how a building "breathes" and functions. Screens at the classrooms showcase the building's energy efficiency performances in real time.
