Most Awarded Private Sector Property Developer, Including 12 Green Mark Awards for Strong Environmental Performance

With 25 accolades, CDL is also the most awarded private sector property developer in BCA Awards 2018. These include 12 Green Mark Awards that recognise the strong environmental performance of CDL’s projects. For more than a decade, CDL has set targets to achieve Green Mark GoldPLUS for all its new projects  two tiers beyond BCA’s mandatory certification level.

CDL’s newly launched condominium in Tampines, The Tapestry, for example, has clinched the Green Mark Platinum Award. It will be built using the innovative Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) method. Some 2,500 building modules, complete with finishes, fixtures and fittings, will be prefabricated offsite and then assembled onsite, boosting productivity by up to 30% compared to conventional construction methods.

Outstanding Tenant Engagement for Collective Low-Carbon Practices

As user behaviour is equally important for achieving a building’s overall energy efficiency, CDL has actively engaged commercial tenants to adopt low-carbon practices. In 2014, the CDL Green Lease Partnership Programme was introduced to support and encourage its commercial tenants to reduce their energy consumption and environmental footprint. By the end of 2017, the Programme achieved 100% tenant participation.

For its outstanding tenant engagement efforts, CDL’s City Square Mall is the first and only mall to receive the Green Mark Pearl Prestige in the BCA Awards 2018. This also makes CDL the only developer to receive this top-tier award for four consecutive years.

Breaking New Ground with Accessible and Family-Friendly Spaces

CDL’s City Square Mall is also the first and only mall to be conferred the inaugural BCA-MSF Universal Design (UD) Mark for Family-Friendly Business. This new UD Mark category recognises businesses that incorporate user-friendly infrastructure and family-friendly service and processes in their facilities. Since receiving its UD Award (Gold) in 2010, the highest-tier BCA UD recognition then, City Square Mall has continued to incorporate more family-friendly facilities and make its open spaces more conducive for community activities and family bonding.
