Sustainable Construction is the need of the hour in Singapore

The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in Singapore wants the companies in Singapore to go for sustainable constructions as the government has committed that it will give funds for such constructions at the 3rd International Holcim Awards for Asia Pacific, said by CEO of Building and Construction Authority, Dr John Keong.

Also he told about the plan of Singapore to work towards zero landfill,building capabilities among local industry players and decreasing the needs of basic construction materials.

So this shows that the Singaporean Government wants the sustainability to be achieved as soon as possible. This can also be supported from the fact that the Government has pledged $ 15 million in order to support the Sustainable Construction Capability Development Fund for capabilities like using recycled material for building and construction.

In the year 2011, BCA got 60 proposals and $ 3 million and hence Dr Keong urge companies to make use of this fund.
