Certification Course on Urban Heat Island (UHI) Mitigation Strategies

Event code: 80084


The Centre for Climate Research Singapore (CCRS) has projected that Singapore’s maximum daily temperature could reach 35 to 37 degrees Celsius by year 2100, if carbon emissions continue to rise at the same rate. This is compounded by the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect, a phenomenon where urban built environment is warmer than rural areas. As such, the BCA Green Mark 2021 (GM: 2021) places stronger focus to drive carbon reduction in mitigating the effects of climate change.

This course aims to evaluate how urban areas can be better designed to provide natural cooling and implement initiatives to mitigate the UHI effect in Singapore. Industry practitioners will be equipped with knowledge to design and adopt innovative solutions towards a cooler Singapore.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Determine the causes and effects of Urban Heat Island (UHI);
• Determine the key mitigation strategies at both macro- and microclimate levels; and
• Analyse the suitability of mitigation strategies based on established guidelines and project typologies.

Industry practitioners who are keen to embark on Green Mark journey or play the role of a Green Specialist; e.g. Developers, Building Owners, Architects, Engineers, Consultants, Project Managers, Facility Managers etc.
