Sabah developers interested on green buildings

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah developers are keen to participate in green building development after getting a clearer picture of the costs involved.

Sabah Housing and Real Estate Developers Association president Datuk Susan Wong said it was ready to promote and en-courage green building development which would save on energy and other costs in the long run.

“Green building involves all sorts of technology. For example, heat can be reduced considerably with the orientation of a building to avoid facing the sun and with large windows,” said Wong.

At the recent opening of the International Property Exhibition, Wong had called for a reduction in Green Building Index (GBI) certification fees.

Yesterday, however, she said the fees were fair, adding that she was initially misguided on the GBI certification fee formula and that the RM5,000 and above charge were for bungalows.

Wong said the fee for a typical 172 sq meters double-storey terrace house was as low as RM100.

“For development of 1,000 units of double-storey terrace houses, the fee would be as low as RM65 per unit. For a 500-unit housing development, the GBI certification fee is RM90 per unit while the fee is RM200 each for those between 50 to 100 units,” she said.

She said developers in the state were keen to have their projects certified as green buildings due to the growing demand.

Green Sabah says: Developers must be well-informed with the advantages of green building in order to promote green building development. Besides imposing the GBI certification fee, there should be an approach for green roof as well.

Malaysia telah mempunyai bangunan hijau semenjak tahun 2005. bangunan ini dikenali sebagai nama GTower yang terletak di Jalan Tun Razak berhampiran dengan KLCC. ia telah mendapat pengiktirafan sebagai Green Mark Gold dari Building and Construction Authority of Singapore (BCA) kerana ciri2 bangunan ini bukan sahaja mengagumkan, malah ia menitikberatkan kepentingan alam sekitar di dalam struktur pembangunannya.

saya harap lebih ramai pemaju hartanah bersikap prihatin dan mempunyai kesedaran terhadap kepentingan alam sekitar dan pembangunan mampan. Pembangunan yang mesra alam lebih tinggi nilainya berbanding dengan bangunan biasa, di samping dapat menjaga alam sekitar.

saya sokong bangunan direkabentuk bercirikan bangunan hijau. bukan saja mengurangkan kos pengurusan bangunan malah mengurangkan masalah pemanasan global.

Kempen green building ini perlu diperhebatkan lagi untuk meningkatkan kesedaran bukan sahaja kepada para pemaju tetapi juga kepada rakyat secara keseluruhannya.

Caldina said...

Konsep green building ini sangat bagus dan tidak hairan jika ia akan menjadi popular di masa akan datang.

Saya orang Sabah bah!! said...

Suhu juga bergantung kepada pembangunan yang dibuat..Maka rancanglah sebaiknya.
