BCA Academy - Academic & Workshop Block

Smart campus and living lab

The Project

Beyond just a teaching facility, the BCA Academy - Academic Tower offers an experiential learning environment. Features such as exposed pipes, an education deck with a chiller plant and green lab demonstrate how a building "breathes" and functions. Screens at the classrooms showcase the building's energy efficiency performances in real time.

The Challenge

The many sustainable features achieve 35% energy savings. Regenerative lifts convert gravitational force into renewable energy while pumpless water tanks supply water for the building. Building Information Modelling is used during the design and construction phases. Structural elements are constructed 88% precast, one of the highest in Singapore.

First of its kind in Singapore
