SP Group awarded BCA grant to power next-gen green buildings

SP Group (SP) was awarded a grant by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) to develop and implement technologies and digital solutions to push the limits of buildings’ energy efficiency standards. The grant was awarded under the Green Buildings Innovation Cluster (GBIC) Programme -  one of the enablers of the Singapore Green Building Masterplan, as part of the Singapore Green Plan 2030.

Under GBIC funding, SP Group will pilot a dynamic online digital portal and an artificial intelligence (A.I.) powered mobile application tool to provide real-time electricity and water usage insights to both occupants and building facilities managers.

Building occupants will also be equipped with an “At Work” function of the SP Utilities App to encourage them to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle.

Sustainability App function - How it works

The National University of Singapore’s (NUS) University Town (UTown) will be the first development to have these digital solutions implemented under this programme. The solutions will be piloted at two buildings at UTown – the Education Resource Centre and the Stephen Riady Centre – and will be installed in the first half of 2022.
