#NUS#SDE breaks ground on its first Net-Zero Energy Building today!
The new sustainable building, which will house teaching and research facilities, will serve as a living laboratory to promote research collaboration in sustainable building design. Conceptualised by the NUS School of Design and Environment, the NZEB@SDE is designed to be climate-responsive with net-zero energy consumption. The six-storey building will feature a range of green building designs, such as harnessing solar energy, hybrid cooling approach, natural ventilation and lighting.
Professor Lam Khee Poh, Dean of NUS School of Design and Environment, puts it across succinctly, “This project marks a new chapter in our School’s vision of learning, knowledge advancement and multidisciplinary collaboration. Many hours of discussion, design iterations and collaborative teamwork have gone into the design of #NZEB@SDE, which will serve as a living laboratory to inspire our staff and students to explore innovative ideas as we continue to push the boundaries of sustainable design to build a green and resilient urban habitat for all to enjoy.”
