Abstract

This paper presents the role of an international design assistance team in the design of a low-energy building in Singapore. Staff from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Austrian Institute of Technology, and Nanyang Technological University formed a team, known as the Scientific Planning Support (SPS) team, to provide design assistance and process support during the design phase of a low-energy building project. Specifically, the SPS team worked on the Clean Tech Two project, a tenanted laboratory and office building that seeks Green Mark Platinum Plus, the highest possible certification level for green buildings in Singapore. The SPS team hosted design charrettes, helped to develop design alternatives, and provided suggestions on the design process in support of this aggressive energy target. This paper describes these efforts and discusses how teams like the SPS team can be leveraged to achieve high performance, low-energy buildings at an international scale.
