NMC awarded Green Mark Platinum Award (Laboratories) by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA)
01 Aug 2023
The BCA Green Mark
Platinum award recognises exemplary green projects that effectively demonstrate
energy and water savings, as well as environmentally sustainable building
practices such as waste management.
NMC has implemented numerous innovations in the set-up of our new premises in
CleanTech 3. Amongst that is the choice of the fume hood used our laboratories.
improve energy efficiency, NMC's laboratories were fitted with Variable Air
Volume (VAV) fume hoods to reduce unnecessary airflow associated with
conventional Constant Air Volume fume hood types. This leads to a reduction in
energy consumption (estimated to be equivalent to the daily energy consumption
of 3.5 households) due to the large volume of air moving through its
ventilation system by the fume hood.
With sustainability in mind, the eco-friendly design of our new premises serves
to contribute to the much-needed effort to reduce global warming.
