OUR PASSION: BUILD GREEN

Why Build Green?

We believe we are called to be steward of God’s creation. Our passion is to made full use of the resources given to maximize their potential.

Here are some of our GREEN practices.

What we practice

We use engineering ingenuity to best design the structure to meets it performance criteria to save precious natural resources.

GREEN effects 

Optimal Design will save precious natural resources.

Creative Yet Functional Design

What we practice

We maximize natural sunlight in the building with windows, skylights, air wells and light shelves.

Having ceilings and walls with highly reflective white surfaces also help to diffuse daylight into the space within the building.

GREEN effects 

Using Natural Sunlight conserves

energy and lower electricity bills!

PINK effects

People are happier in buildings with Natural Sunlight. Getting sufficient sunlight prevents osteoporosis, depression, type 2 diabetes, cancers affecting bladder, colon, stomach, etc. Sunlight prevents infections resulted from bacteria, molds, viruses, etc.

Do you know ... 

Excessive UV radiation has been linked to skin cancer. Undesirable heat gain may higher electricity bills.

Natural Sunlight

What we practice

We would design the building to face the prevailing wind to achieve adequate cross ventilation.

Minimize west facing window and facade. Hence, the building could be kept cool, even without using air-conditioners.

GREEN effects 

Natural Ventilation eliminated usage of mechanical ventilation and air-conditioners which conserves energy!

PINK effects

Studies have shown that people in buildings with natural ventilation have fewer building related symptoms such as headaches, eye irritation etc.

Do you know ... 

In Singapore, the wind usually blows from north or northeast between December and early March. Then from the south or southeast between June and September.

Natural Ventilation

What we practice

We would suggest a solar heater which converts heat from sunlight to warm the water used for showering.

 

Consider a photovoltaic (PV) system that harvest the energy of the sun's rays for all or partial of the building's energy needs.

GREEN effects 

Air emissions of particles, carbon dioxide, and other harmful elements will be reduced.

PINK effects

Reduced energy eliminates the air pollution which leads poor health, smog and global climate change.

Do you know ... 

The average commercial solar system will last between 25 and 30 years.

The payback period will be about 15 years and have an internal rate of return of 4.5%

Solar Elements

What we practice

Thermal Transfer is taken into consideration during the design of the building and selection of the construction materials.

 

The heat and solar radiation through glass walls, window, doors and roof. The orientation of glass walls, window and doors external shading devices

GREEN effects 

Reduction of solar heat keep the indoor space comfortable and decrease the air conditioning bills.

PINK effects

Reduction of harmful UV rays and glare of sunlight will lead to less eye fatigue.

Do you know ... 

In Singapore, new buildings are required to submit Envelope Thermal Transfer Value (ETTV) as part of statutory compliance.

Thermal Transfer

What we practice

We would cater various locations of the interior space to have lush yet suitable greenery.

 

Greenery enhances the aesthetics of the interior space. It creates a humidity level matching the human comfort range of 30% to 60%.

 

The plants shall be easy to maintain.

PINK effects

Studies show that people are more relaxed in a space with greenery. Thiswill improve productivity, reduce stress, and reduce blood pressure.

Do you know ... 

Plant releases carbon dioxide at night.

Thus, placing plants in the bedroom is not a good idea.

Greenery

What we practice

We would include Vertical Greenery, which takes neglected spaces and make them useful.

 

Shallow, light weight growing media with carefully selected plants will minimize maintenance.

Roof gardens and sky terraces will create new spaces for living, working and entertaining.

PINK effects

Vertical Greenery reduces glare andimproves the air quality in the vicinity.

Do you know ... 

Due to the weight of the growing media and greenery, the design of structure may be more demanding.
