First residential project in Asia made of green concrete launched

(Singapore) — Amerald Land has unveiled its eco-friendly condominium project called Gaia which is constructed entirely from green concrete and complies with the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum standards.

Launched last Friday, Amerald Land said it consulted extensively with the BCA on the various aspects of the project, from Green Mark assessment to methods of enhancing construction productivity and sustainable construction methods or materials

In addition, Dr T Tamilselvan, Senior Research Fellow from the Department of Civil Engineering, National University of Singapore, lent his expertise and experienced insights on ‘green concrete’ throughout this project.

Green concrete is increasingly recognised for its strong environmental benefits of reducing wastage and over-reliance on raw materials.

“Through raising awareness on sustainable living among the mainstream community, Amerald Land aims to influence other boutique developers and even the Housing Development Board (HDB) to follow in our footsteps of building sustainable, ecological residential projects,” said Ron Tan, head of business development at Amerald Land.

Gaia is projected to result in energy savings of S$1, 222 (US$960.61) per household per year (or 3, 995 kWh of electricity saved) and water savings of S$246 (US$193.38) per household per year (or 83, 000 liters of water saved).

Gaia comprises 28 exclusive freehold units located at 33 Jalan Dusun.
