Nike's new 9,400sqm footwear manufacturing facility in Vietnam is an exemplary Asian model of environmentally responsible manufacturing. NikeÍs goal was to provide a safe and comfortable work environment through sustainable building practices. Sustainable design features include the enhancing of natural ventilation which is achieved through the introduction of ventilation towers that induce a natural airflow from adjoining landscape zones. Open mesh side walls combine with continuous clerestory glazing and strategic skylighting to provide even, ambient daylighting throughout the work areas. In addition, the facility enclosure employs design elements such as deep shading roof overhangs, and light coloured materials that reflect and reject heat, to improve and enhance the work environment.
