 Singapore’s Cleantech Park wins a district award.



(Singapore=Koreanpress) by Ramani = CleanTech Park was built as Singapore’s first eco-business park by the JTC Corporation. Now it has chalked another first by bagging the Building and Construction Authority’s Platinum Green Mark for Districts Award.

The award was won for having an energy-efficient infrastructure and well maintained public amenities. This is expected to help save more than 40% of energy consumption and 25% of potable water usage. This translates to about 40% of cost savings in utilities each year.

While other award recipients such as NUS University Town, Resorts World Sentosa and JTC‟s Mediapolis garnered the Green Mark GoldPLUS award (Version 1), CleanTech Park was assessed under the revised Green Mark for Districts (Version 2). This places more emphasis in engaging the stakeholders and distinct community in the overall planning of the project. This meant soliciting the necessary feedback and translating them into ideas that would result in all round improvement of the park.
CleanTech Park is designed with a “blue network” of water bodies, including streams, bioswales and ponds that store an estimated 150,000 litres of stormwater yearly for sanitary flushing. This accounts for the 25% of savings in potable water usage. The corporation has also planned for a district-level energy monitoring and automatic control system that will monitor the energy consumption rates of buildings in CleanTech Park.
On the aesthetic side, the park’s pedestrian-friendly design encourages residents to take their daily walks or jogging. Now JTC has proposed secure bicycle parking facilities that in effect promotes eco-friendly modes of transportation. Care has been taken to see the bicycle paths run via green walkways within the park.
The master plan for CleanTech Park was launched in February 2010 with the aim of positioning Singapore as a global test-bed as well as the preferred site for early adoption of clean technology products and solutions for urbanised settings in the tropics.
This concept has been well accepted by the industry. CleanTech One, a multi-tenanted building, has an occupancy rate of more than 70%. Equally important is the fact that it has drawn world class research institutes like the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI), the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) and top global companies such as DHI, Toray and Yingli Solar. Forging ahead, with a second building, JTC has secured as an anchor tenant, A*STAR’s Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre.
