Surbana Jurong received two Merit Awards at the inaugural Cities of Love Award in Singapore, which recognise the sustainability efforts of individuals, businesses and communities. Two Surbana Jurong projects, BCA SkyLab and National University of Singapore School of Design and Environment Block 4 secured the awards under the environment category.
The BCA SkyLab project, secured the Sustainability Team Leader Award for Tan Szue Hann. This project was submitted as a design prototype for a state-of-the-art test laboratory for developing innovative, energy-efficient, sustainable building technologies. The COLA panel of judges, which included Tai Lee Siang, chairman of the World Green Building Council, recognised it for promoting innovation in sustainability.
The NUS School of Design and Environment Block 4 project secured the Team Award. This project will be the first net zero-energy campus building in Singapore. The design of its architecture and engineering systems in the name of environmental sustainability caught the judges’ attention. Essentially, by providing a comfortable environment while consuming replaceable energy, it is slated to be a prototype of how hybrid cooling and renewable energy can become emblematic of future learning spaces in Singapore.
Surbana Jurong, Arup, Mott MacDonald and Changi Airport Planners and Engineers, have been appointed by Changi Airport Group for the upcoming Terminal 5 project. This project will cement Singapore’s position as a key aviation hub position and Changi Airport’s reputation as the world’s best airport.Read More
