To maximise the potential for cost-effective energy savings in our built environment, projects developed on land sold under the Government Land Sales (GLS) programme sites in selected strategic areas will be subject to higher Green Mark standards.
Scope and details
The building works subject to this requirement are to be designed and certified to meet the prescribed BCA Green Mark certification below
There is no need for Qualified Person (QP) to submit his declaration and GM score for these projects. Instead, the QP should:
- Before submitting the building plan, make an application to BCA for the project to be assessed and certified under the certification standards approved by the Commissioner of Building Control
- Upon completion of building works, inform BCA early to initiate the Green Mark verification audit so as to facilitate the temporary occupation permit (TOP) and certificate of statutory completion (CSC) process
- Submit the relevant clearance showing that the project has been verified and met the prescribed Green Mark Certification rating, along with the application for TOP or CSC
Compliance with the respective certification standards will be based on the tender award letter issued by URA to the successful developer under the Government Land Sales (GLS) programmefor the selected strategic areas, as stated in the table below.
