Sustainable urban development and construction is a high priority of the Government of Vietnam. In cooperation with the Ministry of Construction (MoC), PEEB through the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME) supports the implementation of lighthouse projects that integrate the principles of bioclimatic construction. These projects will demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of bioclimatic buildings. At the same time, they will inform the social housing program under development by PEEB to spread them across the whole social housing sector of Vietnam.

A call for proposal to Vietnamese developers and promoters in June 2020 yielded seven proposals: three in the educational sector and four in housing (two social housing projects). Two winners were selected, Capital House with the Thu Do School project in Hanoi, and NHS Construction Investment JSC with the To Huu Social Housing Project in Hanoi:

Capital House 1

Capital House and the Thu Do Shool project in Me Tri Ward, Nam Tu Liem District, Hanoi  


NHS Construction Investment JSC and the To Huu Social Housing Project in Nam Tu Liem District, Hanoi

Both projects were selected due to their high replication potential for adopting energy efficiency and bioclimatic concepts. In 2021 the two winners will receive technical assistance from a Franco-Vietnamese team of experts which will help them in designing energy efficient and bioclimatic buildings in order to reduce need for air conditioning while providing a high level of comfort. These pilot projects will also benefit from the technical support to conduct cost-benefit analyses of identified solutions based on life-cycle costs to assess the upfront costs for low-energy buildings and explore options for climate financing.
