Abstract: Buildings consume 30–40% of the total electric energy. Implementing a recreation based on central air framework operation, better interior natural components design, and tenant behavior can reduce indoor pollution. These measures can be employed with multiscale simulations to track the central air-frame long-term viability and energy demands. Intelligent building development and management require a sensing system. To achieve this goal, a clear and strict legislative framework for carbon emission reduction, sustainability promotion, and the use of renewable energy is required. Data and communication technology connected to building structures (so- called "smart structures") improve energy management. Modern hygiene and health considerations have elevated building occupant safety. In the current study, several ventilation methods are evaluated and compared for energy efficiency and environmental impact using the life cycle assessment method. Certain ventilation system designs, implementation law and policy are examined. The mechanical ventilation requirements are analyzed. We aim at solving the complex energy efficiency-indoor air quality conundrum. Eco-friendly power structures have heating and cooling ventilation frameworks. This ensures energy reform and reduces ozone-depleting chemicals. The mechanical ventilation systems of Singapore's public are under investigation. When PVs are added, the framework provides a new viewpoint on the building's environmental effect and energy savings. Environmental assessment software OpenLca supports Life Cycle Evaluation is used to help our study. In hot, humid Singapore, cutting-edge building projects require ACMV systems. The design, installation, and maintenance of ACMV are discussed. Its importance to Singapore's building industry is analyzed. We then delves into ACMV system development variables such climate, building purpose, energy efficiency, etc. ACMV systems need frequent maintenance to work well and endure as long as possible. The predictive, corrective, and preventive maintenance benefits of ACMV are discussed. The dissertation provides an overview of ACMV systems and how they are employed in Singapore's building industry, which helps solve commonly encountered industry problems such as increasing electricity costs and the need fto meet environmentally-friend design requirements.
