Studio City Phase 2 shortlisted for BREEAM Awards 2021 Highlighting the expansion project’s targeted sustainability strategy and contribution towards achieving Melco’s carbon neutral and zero waste goals

Melco Resorts & Entertainment announces Studio City Phase 2 has been shortlisted for the ‘Regional Award, Asia’ at the BREEAM Awards 2021. The nomination highlights the design and implementation of the integrated resort expansion project’s targeted sustainability strategy, as well as the project’s contribution towards achieving Melco’s carbon neutral and zero waste goals. The international BREEAM Awards is an annual celebration recognizing the people, projects and organizations who are leading the way with significant achievements in sustainable building design, development and management.

Set to offer approximately 900 rooms and suites as well as world-class non-gaming attractions including one of the world’s largest indoor/outdoor water parks, a Cineplex, fine-dining restaurants and state-of-the-art MICE space, Studio City’s Phase 2 development includes extensive planning to engineer its two hotel tower blocks to be precisely distanced from each other, creating an adequate ‘sky-stream’ to facilitate bird migratory pathways. The design consideration ensures that the development is located away from the existing Macau Cotai Ecological Zone, comprising 15 hectares of protected wetland observed as a resting place by many species of migratory birds.

Strategies also include minimizing the impact of basement excavation on both wetland and underground water sources. An ecologist was specifically engaged to develop preservation measures for existing flora and compensatory planting with species compatible with the site’s landscape and habitat.

The development also follows Melco’s sustainable procurement plan, which ensures all selected contractors use timber and timber-based products that have been legally harvested, traded and sourced in accordance with the Forestry Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) certification, as well as paints, coatings, sealants and adhesives that have no or low-VOC content, wherever possible.

Melco currently holds BREEAM “Excellent” Ratings for the Design stage for both Studio City Phase 2 and City of Dreams Mediterranean in Cyprus, where Melco is developing Europe’s largest integrated resort by incorporating the very highest sustainability standards into its design.
