BCA Awards 2017
21 Jun 2017
RSP came away from the BCA Awards 2017 with a stellar haul of 12 awards, including the Built Environment Leadership Platinum Award--the first to be conferred on a multidisciplinary design consultancy firm. A long-time pioneer of sustainability efforts, RSP's innovative design solutions take Singapore ever closer to realising a low-carbon Future City envisioned under the government's Future Economy initiative.
In an interview with The Straits Times (June 14, 2017), Mr Sonny Chionh, associate director at RSP, cited Grand Park City Hall as an example of a future-proof development which successfully bridges design excellence, urban development and community needs. The hotel was awarded a Green Mark Platinum award this year in recognition of renovation works by RSP that include sustainable initiatives such as water-efficient fittings, photovoltiac rooftop panels and eco-friendly building products. These modern augmentations have been seamlessly integrated to preserve the architectural integrity of the hotel (it won a URA Architectural Heritage Award in 1998).
According to Mr Chionh, the hotel's solar panels and various sustainable features generate a savings of 2,850,000kWh a year--enough to power 600 four-room flats for one year. “We are now at the forefront of showing the world that sustainability can be achieved not just in buildings or precincts but in a city,” he says.
