    BCA Skylab Mapletree Business City
    BCA Skylab
    Officially opened in 20 July 2016, BCA Skylab is a state-of-the-art rotatable test facility pivotal to the development of innovative energy-efficient building technologies. The facility, modelled after the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s FLEXLAB (Facility for Low Energy Experiments in Buildings), is capable of testing a wide range of energy-efficient technologies. It features two configurable test cells that enable the study of design solutions and performance validation of technologies.
    Mapletree Business City
    A new benchmark for business space in Singapore and beyond, Mapletree Business City incorporates a “city” concept where modern business space is situated in a garden setting. The MBC concept has also been exported overseas to Shanghai, China.
    • Estimated energy & water savings of 15,020,093 kWh/yr and 94,000 m3/yr respectively.
    • Measured and verified operating system efficiency of 0.58 kW/ton, with variable speed drive controls.
    • Extensive use of energy efficient T5 lighting for office space, with 39% savings from code.
    • Intelligent BMS control to turn off lighting at common areas when not in use.
    • Waste heat recovery system to produce hot water for F&B and amenities usage.
    • Run-around coil technology at pre-cooled AHU to pre-cool outdoor fresh air.
    • CO2 sensors integrated with demand control ventilation for offices AHU to reduce fresh air intake when human occupancy is low.
    • Indoor air quality audit conducted to ensure a good indoor air quality in office premises.

    • Refurbishment, re-engineering and relocation of the 15 year old chiller plant at the rooftop that brought about significant energy savings.
    • Motion sensor lighting at all private lift lobbies, changing rooms and common staircases, and day-lighting sensors in classrooms.
    • Rooftop garden, and huge green walls incorporated on building façades to reduce ambient temperature.
    • Use of WELS (water efficiency labelling scheme) excellent-rated fittings throughout the development.
    • Passive design and optimum building layout to minimize heat gain and maximize natural ventilation.
    CapitaGreen

    An environmentally sustainable and inclusive office tower designed by Pritzker Prize winner Toyo Ito. CapitaGreen has garnered numerous awards, including Universal Design Mark Platinum awards and Best Tall Building (Asia and Australasia) 2015 conferred by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

    Aimed at minimising solar heat gain, CapitaGreen houses a large expanse of greenery as well as sky terraces on Levels 14 and 26, while its innovative and stunning façade employs energy-efficient double-skin high-performance glass and extensive vertical greenery. To irrigate the building's plants, it will harness innovative water-saving techniques such as rainwater harvesting.

    A cool void at the centre core of the property permits air flow throughout the building, effectively regulating the building's temperature. At the same time, the building's high floor-to-ceiling height of 3.2 metres allows for natural lighting to permeate the space, thus creating a sense of spaciousness.

    This tour is available as part of a 1-day pass that includes access to the International Green Building Conference sessions on 12 Sep 2017, 8.30am – 1.30pm. Participants also enjoy exclusive access to the Joint Opening Ceremony and lunch on 12 Sep.

    This pass is available at the promotional rate of S$360 per person. 7% GST is applicable for all Singapore-based companies.
