It was Singapore’s founding father, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who started the vision of Singapore as a Garden City. The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Scheme was launched in January 2005 as an initiative to shape a more environmentally friendly and sustainable environment. One of the criteria of green-homes include reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
This can be achieved by ensuring that all appliances installed within the building during construction are awarded with an Energy Star certification. Buildings are also encouraged to construct a rainwater collection system. The harvested rainwater is then channelled to the irrigation systems for landscaping purposes.
Further, buildings are also encouraged to have vegetated green roofs to decrease any heat island effects. Eco-living is proven to consume less energy and is more cost-effective in the long run.
Here are 5 eco-friendly, BCA Green Mark award-winning condos in Singapore.
