The IEQ of a building has a great impact on its occupants’ health, comfort, and productivity. A sustainable building will maximize the use of natural lighting and ventilation, as much as the building typology and other site-specific conditions allow.
GREEN INNOVATION PRACTICE
The design should include, where appropriate, both passive design strategies (usually low-tech) as well as active systems (usually high-tech) that require less maintenance, less resources, fewer chemicals, and are cost- effective throughout the lifespan of the building.
ALL THE FIVE (5) JUDGING CRITERIA WILL BE SUMMED UP TO 50% BASED ON VISUAL PRESENTATION AND THE REMAINING 50% WILL BE BASED ON ORAL PRESENTATION.
