Cities are the centres of communication, commerce, and culture. Although, more than 80% of global GDP is generated in urban districts, the cities consume two-thirds of global resources and produce more than 70% of global CO2 emissions. Rising population, escalating urban pollution, the effects of climate change urge cities to search for...

Singapore is a city-state that experienced very rapid urban and economic growth during the second half of the 20th century. This is the result of the establishment of multinational companies (MNCs) within Singapore, due to the right policymaking by the Singapore government. Various studies have been done on Singapore’s economic growth and urban...

Rising temperatures due to climate change and the increased Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect both have a major impact on Singapore’s outdoor comfort. Research has reported an average UHI in Singapore of 4°C, which can even exceed 7°C at some times of the day. (Acero & Ruefenacht, 2017) Increasing convective surface heat transfer from the human...

A significant number of studies has been carried out to establish 3D cadastre solutions to improve the registration of multi-level property. Since the inception of research on 3D cadastres (about 20 years ago), the world around us has changed significantly and this also partly changes the context regarding 3D cadastre: technology (e.g....

The building sector in Singapore consumes up to half of the nation’s total energy. The government has therefore been urging the transformation of the industry by targeting 80% of all buildings to be green-certified by 2030. Thus far, Singapore has done relatively well, and is widely viewed as frontrunner in this respect. This paper addresses the...

Gross Floor Area (GFA) concession scheme, as a planning incentive, is developed from the notion of “make developers pay” in UK in 1990. It rewards developers additional GFA in exchange for public amenities so that government could save that amount of money. This paper carries out a review of GFA concession scheme in Hong Kong and Singapore to...

The wastewater infrastructure in Singapore is undergoing a major revamp, which includes the construction of a new water reclamation plant (WRP) in Tuas. This plant aims to maximise the energy recovered from wastewater, with the ultimate aim of achieving energy self-sufficiency. The Integrated Validation Plant (IVP) is a 1000 m3/day pilot plant...

Traditionally, ports are located in areas protected by natural shelter. Shelter is needed for the safe mooring of vessels and for the efficient handling of containers and other cargo. Disadvantage of the areas which provide natural shelter is their limiting depth. Due to the increasingly bigger vessels, dredging in ports became inevitable....

The water quality of a 5 hectare lake system in Gardens by the Bay, Singapore is modelled. The lake system comprises two lakes, Dragonfly and Kingfisher Lake, connected by a 5 metre wide stream. Inflow is from runoff from the 50 hectare catchment and from pumping from the neighbouring Marina Bay Reservoir at a rate of 20 Ls-1, 24/7. Outflow is...

East Coast Park is a 15 km long coastal park along the southeast coast of Singapore. It is built on entirely reclaimed land and comprises a sandy shoreline. The beaches along this shoreline are formed due to the implementation of anthropogenic structures all along this stretch of coast through so-called headland control. These structures were...

Water levels and flows in the Singapore coastal waters are driven by the complex interactions of the Indian and Pacific Ocean tides, seasonal monsoon-driven contributions and also forced by local winds. The Singapore Regional Model was developed to simulate hydrodynamics in the Strait of Singapore which produces representative sea level...

Property rights have always been shown in 2D with the surface parcel being the fundamental representation of ownership. Complex 3D situations, interlocking properties, multi-levelled train station, underground rock caverns are all immediate but unresolved challenges for us in Singapore.

Sir John Egan’s report on UK construction industry in 1998, Rethinking Construction, inspired a similar review in Singapore in 1999. The Construction 21 (C21) report has served as the blueprint for developing Singapore’s construction industry. A series of interviews was carried out in late 2009 to investigate the implementation of the C21 report...

Singapore’s coastal waters are characterised by relatively complex tidal behaviour due to it’s location between two large oceans with different tidal regimes. This complex tidal behaviour results in poor understanding of the hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics. The hydrodynamics of the Johor River estuary, including part of the Singapore Strait...

Due to the diminishing Coriolis force towards the equator, the equatorial zone is known to be cyclone-free. However, on 27th December 2001, a tropical cyclone Vamei was formed near Singapore; 1.4 degrees latitude North from the equator, and made a landfall about 60 km northeast of Singapore. Although this event did not cause any major...
