This coming September, the Public Utilities Board (PUB) and the Institute of Engineers Singapore will launch a training programme for architects and engineers in green building features. See The Straits Times article below.
New training programme to promote green building features
A NEW programme to train architects and engineers in green building features will be launched in September.
The programme, by national water agency PUB and the Institute of Engineers Singapore, will cover how to design, construct and maintain green features such as water-cleaning ponds.
It costs up to $330 and will comprise several modules.
People who complete the course will be registered with the PUB under its Active, Beautiful, Clean (ABC) Waters programme.
The PUB said property developers who want to include green features in their buildings may have to submit their plans for approval by such registered professionals in the future.
Currently, developers can get an ABC Waters certification from the PUB – which helps them market their properties as environmentally-friendly – but it is not necessary.
