Haus @ Serangoon Garden clinches BCA Green Mark Platinum award

In recognition of its green designs and technologies, Haus @ Serangoon Garden (pictured) has received the BCA Green Mark Platinum award, making history as the very first residential estate in the country to receive the honour.

“This is a first time we have awarded the Green Mark Platinum rating to a landed housing estate in Singapore,” said John Keung, CEO of BCA.

“We are indeed encouraged to see developers like CDL and Hong Realty making the effort to bring environmentally sustainable designs to not only high-rise buildings but individual landed homes.”

Located at Serangoon Garden Way, Haus @ Serangoon Garden includes 96 landed terrace houses and is jointly developed by Hong Realty (Private) Limited and City Developments Limited (CDL).

Set to be launched in mid-2012, Haus @ Serangoon Garden’s design uses both passive and active green building approaches to ensure that a comprehensive sustainable design is integrated in the building.

Every house comes equipped with state-of-the art green technology that helps save water and energy. It is also the first landed housing development in the country to uses a one kilowatt-peak photovoltaic (PV) system, which captures solar power to offset the grid electricity consumption.

Other green features include the use of rainwater for gardening and an innovative air-conditioner heat recovery system.

About four percent of the total construction cost was allotted to incorporate green innovations, which will likely save up to 40 percent energy for each house.

“Haus @ Serangoon Garden is a landmark residential development for us as we are able to deliver significant measurable and direct cost benefits to individual homebuyers over a long-term period,” said Kwek Leng Joo, Managing Director at CDL.
