A Green Mark Singapore
Intended to incentivize Singapore’s construction industry towards building more environmentally-friendly buildings, the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) Green Mark Scheme is seen as a stamp of approval by the private sector and homeowners who want to boost their green credentials.
The question is how are these companies and individuals going about sprucing up their buildings to meet the bill? From automatic motion sensor lights to rooftop solar panels, ‘A Green Mark Singapore’ delves into the practices and technologies that have been adopted at environmentally-friendly buildings such as City Square Mall, Singapore’s first eco-mall.
As companies like Noble Resources and homeowners show, it just takes a little effort and ingenuity to reap the rewards of a green building. Nonetheless, given the high capital cost that some of these green technologies cost, do the long-term benefits such as savings in water and electricity compensate for this?
