Environmental Sustainability Services

Environmental Sustainability (ES) services complement traditional built environment professional services disciplines, such as architecture and engineering, by integrating multi-disciplinary considerations to achieve environmental sustainability outcomes and goals.

ES firms typically possess expertise in specialised areas such as energy modelling, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for natural ventilation studies, energy audits, chiller plant optimisation and decarbonisation strategies. The result is a high- performance, energy and resource-efficient building that is both healthy and comfortable for occupants. they can help projects achieve SLE, Zero Energy and Zero Carbon targets.

ES firms have deep capabilities in optimising overall building performance, for both new and existing buildings, to achieve higher ratings in Green Mark and other Green Building rating schemes. This includes certification to Super Low Energy and Zero Energy certification standards.

The Singapore Green Building Services (SGBS) certification scheme for ES services was developed to support the needs of project owners seeking professional services to meet the sustainability goals for their buildings and building projects. The tiering of ES firms corresponds generally to the following project needs:

SGBS-certified ES firms have highly trained staff with Green Mark Accredited Professional (GMAP) and Green Mark Advanced Accredited Professional (GMAAP) qualifications. GMAPs serve as leads for Green Mark projects as Responsible Persons, whilst GMAAPs are required for the endorsement of Energy Modeling and CFD reports.
