DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Recycle Collection Center, Cyberjaya

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Recycle Collection Center

INSPIRATION:
This project is a community centre project built by Cyberview Sdn. Bhd. The Recycling Collection Centre was designed to be a Green Certified Building and used various materials that are considered green or recyclable. It is a pilot project or a prototype concept that can be replicated elsewhere. The design calls for an area of approximately 1,200 sq ft to include main entrance, foyer and lobby, seating area, receiving centre, prayer room, rest room and waste segregation area and storage area. A playground area was also included within the built up area. A mezzanine floor is added to accommodate an area for used clothes to be sold. The building is designed to face North South with minimum exposure to East and West sun. The roof is designed to tilt Southeast for maximum exposure to the sun for future installation of solar panels. A signature free standing wall is incorporated into the building to act as a focal point to identify the building from far. It is built using fly-ash concrete. A water harvesting equipment was also installed to collect water for water irrigation. The whole building is designed to be cooled using natural ventilation and fans. The top of the walls are left opened for natural ventilation and the walls are made permeable by the used of recycled bottles, tins and bottles. The walls were designed to reflect the purpose of the building. A specially designed wall was made using galvanized steel as a cage to act as a wall. The ‘cage’ is openable to allow for the replacement of the bottles, plastics and tins as we anticipate that due to exposure these materials will fade after some time. The floor boards of the mezzanine floors and staircase threads are made with reused railway sleepers. The entire site is paved with interlocking grass pavers and it is anticipated that in time, the grass will cover most of the driveway areas. This will reduce the heat generated from the pavement if it is made out of pre-mix. One of the features of the recycle centre is a drive-thru bins which allows for the public to drop their materials at the centre after hours.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Cyberjaya established in 1997, is a planned city dedicated to the development of Science and Information Technology. Once completed, the 7,000 acres township will accommodate a population of approximately 250,000 people. It is also planned to be one of Malaysia’s Green Township together with its neighbour, Putrajaya, the Government Administrative Centre of Malaysia. At present, it is a growing township with a daytime population of about 64,000 people. As the township grows to become both residential and commercial center in Malaysia, waste are being generated by the population and have been discarded the conventional way. Efforts were made to promote its residence to separate and recycle their waste since the township is being promoted as a Green City of the future for people to work, play and live. What was lacking before the completion of this building is a center for collecting of recycle materials. These materials are sold by the residents here to encourage the people living in Cyberjaya to recycle their waste and earning money rather than throwing them inside the waste bin which will go straight to the dumping ground. A site of approximately 0.246 acre or 10,716 sq ft was allocated to the Recycling Collection Centre for collection of things that are no longer worked or used. The centre is run by Alam Flora to disseminate to various recycle centres. It is located within the park and ride area in the centre Cyberjaya.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Energy Efficiency Indoor Environmental Quality Sustainable Site Planning & Management Material & Resources Water Efficiency Innovation Site Management Make efficient use of solar exposure. A building’s materials can reflect, transmit or absorb solar radiation making it important to choose design elements and materials that utilize solar energy in the most efficient way. Reduce heat gain through roof exposure while reducing the energy load on cooling systems. Make use of renewable energies to reduce both utility costs and environmental impacts of energy production. In low traffic areas use porous paved surfaces to assist on-site stormwater infiltration and reduce erosion. Develop in pedestrian friendly locations that promote healthy life styles and alternate modes of transportation. (Urban areas). Water Conservation Landscaping plan using drought-tolerant species, native plants, minimal lawn cover to conserve water and reduce the need for fertilizers and pesticides Reduce utility costs and the strain on the fresh water supply by installing low-flow fixtures and water conserving appliances. Energy Efficiency By conserving energy tenants save money and enjoy increased comfort. Healthy Living Provide living spaces that enhance resident health by eliminating toxic materials and increasing the quality of air. Building Plan and Materials The efficient use and reuse of materials along with a site construction plan reduces the environmental impact of building while also reducing the costs incurred.
