Viyellatex plans first ever green factory building
Mar '10
The first-ever "carbon-neutral" factory of Bangladesh is to be established on the fringes of Dhaka, by mid of 2011.

Viyellatex Group, country's leading apparel manufacturer and exporter, is to construct a 'green building' in Joydevpur, to be spread on an area of four acres and the first of its kind. This is being done with an aim to draw maximum foreign buyers. When compared to the factories earlier established by the company, the one under consideration would be rather more eco-friendly and energy efficient.

David Hasanat, Chairman Viyellatex Group, stated that construction work in respect of the one-storied building will commence in June this year and is expected to conclude by June 2011. The design which has already been finalized will create working facilities for at least 1,000 workers inside the premises.

Environmental issues and energy efficiency remain the focal point behind the idea of a green building, since such buildings have comparatively lower carbon emissions, aver experts.

The unique green building has been designed in accordance with norms of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), a rating system that has been devised by the United States Green Building Council. For speeding up the development and implementation of the green building practices, the need was felt to develop a rating system that is consensus-based and market driven, and thus, LEED was launched.

According to David Hasanat, the garment factory that is to be set up in the 'green building' is to engage itself in production of knit and woven items.

In collaboration with the German Technical Cooperation, the design has been developed by a team of three members who represent the Department of Architecture at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Hasanat stated.
