Fusion Maia Da Nang, a five-star resort, is located along the My Khe beach. The resort is composed of 87 villas, three restaurants, a meeting room and four spa villas. It was awarded the first prize for the Tropical Building category in the Energy Efficient Building Contest organized by the Ministry of Industry and Trade in 2013. It is designed toward eco-architecture with style resembling that of traditional Hue Citadel architecture. Many energy saving solutions have been applied such as energy efficient lamps, air conditioning system and Variable speed drives.

The North-East part of the resort facing the beach was designed with small adjacent units with corridors to help taking advantage of prominent winds for natural ventilation.
The master plan of Fusion Maia Da Nang resort
White painted walls allow for a high solar reflection capacity. It helps to reduce the thermal inertia of the building.
Large balconies of villas provide shading for the area below and help reducing direct solar radiation into the building.
Numerous trees are also providing further shading for the buildings.
The average Overall Thermal Transfer Value (OTTV) of walls is calculated at 42.85 W/m2, a reduction of 28.5% compared to the 2013 EEBC requirement (of 60W/m2).
The main building roof has four layers made up of (from outside to inside):
+ Concrete slab (the first concrete slab layer)
+ A technical void with air venting louvers
+ Gypsum Ceiling
The Overall Thermal Transfer Value (OTTV) of the roof is calculated at 15.42 W/m2, a reduction of 38% compared to the EEBC requirement (of 25W/m2).
Each villa has a pool which creates a cooler environment thanks to water evaporation effects.
Centralised air conditioning system
Installation of a Variable Refrigerant Volume system with a (from 9 kW to 17 kW) capacity of each outdoor unit and a (from 3.19 to 3.6) COP, a (from 12% to 19%) improvement compared to the 2013 EEBC requirement (of 2.84-3.02).
1. Usage of energy efficient lamps
2,130 (7W) LEDs are used in lobbies, walkways and guest rooms.
517 (13W and 36W) Compact fluorescent light lamps are installed in restaurants.
Lighting Power Density (LPD) is 6.2 W/m2, a reduction of 43.6% compared to the 2013 EEBC requirement (11 W/m2).
Leds in villas
Leds in outdoor areas
2. Control of lighting
A total of 4 public lighting boards consisting of six timers each is installed to avoid unnecessary energy consumption in public areas.
Water pumping system
Installation of VSDs for two (3 kW) water pumps to control operation more efficiently.
There are 13 Qualified Technical Staff in several fields such as electricity, electronics and plumbing.
There are 35,040 hours / year for management and maintenance work for the electrical systems.
Plan of maintenance for the equipment includes:
– Lamp fixtures: maintenance and cleaning 1 time/ 3 months.
– Air conditioning system: maintenance and cleaning once a month.
– Kitchen equipment: maintenance and cleaning 3 times/ 1 month.
Organisation of training courses (60 hours/person/year) to improve skills and exchange knowledge on issues of maintenance, operation and repairing of equipment.
Notice boards on energy efficient use and behavior are hang on office doors to attract people’s attention.
