Abstract: Laboratory intensive buildings pose a distinctive challenge in sustainable building design, since they represent energy guzzling spaces due to unique operation and energy demanding activities. Academic Block North (ABN), a laboratory intensive building in Singapore begs to differ from this norm by demonstrating 42% energy savings compared to a building constructed based on code standards. This paper highlights the process of sustainability assessment of ABN to achieve 126 points to go beyond Green Mark Platinum standards for a non-residential building. Such an approach and framework can be applied to other buildings to achieve higher energy efficiency and sustainability benchmarks.
