Bti brings to Bangladesh an architectural masterpiece, which is a step towards the future. Designed by the famous architect Mustapha Khalid Palash, bti Landmark brings a new meaning to modern. Located on Gulshan Avenue, this fair-faced office building is in a prime location, automatically implying a high-status. Outstanding first impressions aside, bti Landmark is truly a work of art in terms of encompassing all the features of an environmentally friendly and technologically sound structure.
It is officially an eco-friendly building, as U.S. Green Building Council has given it a LEED Gold Certificate. What are some of the features that make it eco-friendly? Rainwater is harvested, and used water is recycled. There is also a water treatment plant installed, making tap water drinkable!
In terms of advanced security and safety features, bti Landmark is also equipped for any dangerous situation, ensuring protection. There is an auto fire protection system installed in the building, with heat and smoke detectors. As added precautions, there is a free passage leading to an emergency exit staircase on every floor, with fire-protected doors. There are 2 fire-protected lifts as well, for the quickest way out of the building, if an office space is situated on a higher floor.
Highlighting other features that give bti Landmark its iconic and technological appeal, there are 5 high-speed 15 passenger capacity lifts, and a full backup generator for uninterrupted power supply, keeping the experience in the workplace smooth with no distractions. The light and temperature within the building is controlled by the 'LOW E' insulated tempered-laminated safety glass. There are also anodised aluminum louvers incorporated, regulating solar heat gain percentage and aiding in energy conversion. Not to mention the state-of-the-art entrance which has a magnificent waterfall flowing from the 1st floor to the ground floor. All of this contributes to a controlled, comfortable and superior environment.
Finally, to make more than sufficient parking space, the building has 3 basements, reducing traffic congestion on Gulshan Avenue, ensuring a faster commute time to the office. Office spaces range from 1,500 sft to 10,800 sft in this modern building.
Of the launching of bti Landmark, bti Chief Operating Officer of Operations Ahsanul Haque said, “bti Landmark is truly a landmark, as the cutting-edge technology it incorporates in the structure is the reason that is eco-friendly in the first place. The ground coverage of the building is 50%, and this minimum ground coverage allows maximum light and ventilation along with the use of glass in the structural design. This eco-friendly building is exactly what is needed in Bangladesh, where there is far too much pollution: to take a step towards caring more about the environment and the future.”
