LASALLE was once again awarded the Green Mark Gold Award for its efforts to achieve environmental sustainability in its buildings and facilities. The McNally Campus buildings were assessed by BCA for its environmental impact and performance including cost savings resulting from the efficient use of resources such as energy and water, leading to lower operational and maintenance costs. Other less tangible benefits include enhanced occupant productivity and health due to good environmental quality. The award is valid for a period of three years.
Green Mark Gold Award
The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Scheme is an initiative to shape a more environmentally friendly and sustainable built environment in Singapore.
The green building rating system evaluates a building for its environmental impact and performance and provides a comprehensive framework for assessing the overall environmental performance of new and existing buildings to promote sustainable design, construction and operations practices in buildings.
Under the assessment framework for existing buildings, building owners and operators are encouraged to meet their sustainable operations goals and to reduce adverse impact of their buildings on the environment and occupant health over the entire building life cycle.
Besides buildings, the assessment criteria evaluates energy efficiency, water efficiency, environment protection, indoor environmental quality and other green/innovative features of districts, parks, infrastructure and building interiors.
LASALLE was awarded the Green Mark Gold Award for its green initiatives. The McNally Campus buildings and facilities were judged to meet the stringent environmental design and sustainability standards. To attain the Green Mark status, the College was assessed by BCA across five criteria: energy efficiency, water efficiency, sustainable operation and management, indoor environment quality and other green features. The award is valid for a period of three years.
