新建筑设计指导原则 打造更具包容性居住环境

On July 27, the Building and Construction Authority introduced several new measures to create a more inclusive living environment which will benefit people of all ages and needs, such as mothers with young children. One of the measures is the launch of a set of enhanced Universal Design Mark criteria, which set higher certification benchmarks and provides an expanded design scope for buildings. These include the additional criteria of installing assistive hearing facilities for the elderly with hearing difficulties. The authority also collaborated with SPRING Singapore and the Singapore Standards Council to launch the "Singapore Standard SS605 - Guide for Age-Friendly Homes". This provides guidelines on design features that will benefit the elderly, through safer, more comfortable and accessible homes. These include providing grab bars, non-trip flooring and adaptable toilet layouts.

女生立志当工程师 希望确保建筑安全

绿色建筑周新展览 推广"绿色生活"概念(联合早报 2015年05月29日)

小至发胶和化妆品,大至冰箱和洗衣机,这些产品都可以更绿更环保。今年9月的新加坡绿色建筑周首次推出"绿色生活"展,让消费者有机会接触各类环保产品、设计和服务,进一步了解绿色生活概念。
建设局局长姜锦贤博士昨天在绿色生活展的推介会上透露,今年绿色建筑周的主题是"绿色建设,智能生活",预计将会吸引来自55个国家的三万多名业者参加。
姜锦贤指出,除了每年的重头戏如国际绿色建筑大会、总裁早餐对话会和亚洲绿色建筑及室内装饰展览会(BEX Asia),建设局也希望通过这个新展览提升消费者对环保生活方式的意识。
"除了建造绿色建筑,如何令置身其中的人深入参与(绿色生活)也很重要……这个展现环保生活方式的展览,助我们进一步建立完善可持续生态系统。"
建设局届时将在展会上布置一个概念展区,展示绿色办公环境如何有益员工身心健康,也传授打造绿色办公室的诀窍。此外,当局还将把本地各机构多年来推行绿色建设的成果集结展览,讲述"新加坡绿色故事"。
介绍各类环保家电
展览主办方励展博览集团(Reed Exhibitions)董事经理林春凤受访时说,BEX Asia的参展商多是为了给产品寻求经销代理,而参加绿色生活展的商家则有机会直接将产品推销给消费者——选择绿色生活及办公方式的个人和机构。
"如果说BEX Asia上展出的是用于工业场所的大型制冷机,绿色生活展上出现的则是适合家庭的节能冷气机、冰箱等家电。那些向往绿色生活的住户,也能够在这个展览上找到合适自己的设计团队,帮助他们设计低耗能之家。"
主办方希望这个为期三天的展会能吸引100家参展公司和上万名访客。目前滨海湾金沙、城市发展集团等企业已确定参展。
