Sabah Art Gallery Strives to Go Green

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry hopes to see the state Art Gallery Conservation Centre to be the first Green Building Index (GBI) certified building in the state when it is completed.

The RM16 million state-funded project commenced on July 1 last year and is slated for completion on Dec 28, 2011, but the project is currently seven percent behind schedule due to the weather and might face one to three months delay.

Masidi said Sabah Art Gallery, which is temporarily sited at Sabah Museum, is expected to move into the new building within two to three months after its completion.

The building will have four levels with 33,000 square feet of space, and will house a conservation and artwork storage, exhibition galleries, office, a library and meeting facilities, among others.

Green Sabah says: It is good to hear that Sabah will have its own first Green Building Index (GBI) certified building soon. Although the project is a bit behind the schedule, we just hope that everything will be well. The Art Gallery Conservation Centre is a good place to promote the artworks of our talented artists besides conserving them. This place will be one of the tourism attraction in the future and also can be art education centre for the students. It's interesting isn't it?

hopefully there will be more green buildings in the future that can provide energy and water savings, a healthier indoor environment, better connectivity to public transport and the adoption of recycling and greenery for their projects.

Utamakan ekonomi dan pembangunan yang hijau. Sabah perlu merancang yang terbaik.
