Beyond just a teaching facility, the new extension of the Singapore Building and Construction Authority Academy offers an experiential learning environment, from exposed pipes, to an education deck with a chiller plant and green lab. Screens at classrooms enable teachers and students to understand energy efficiency performances in real time.
The many sustainable features achieve 35% energy savings. Regenerative lifts convert gravitational force into renewable energy while pumpless water tanks supply water for the building. Building information modelling is used throughout design and construction phases. Structural elements are constructed 88% pre-cast, one of the highest in Singapore.
