Environmental impact
Many older buildings are not energy efficient and environmentally unsustainable. Campus redevelopments provide opportunities for transforming the existing campus into a sustainable one, through developing sustainability policies and planning, and implementing clean/green technologies in future developments.

Performance Status
Our masterplan development guidelines have established policies such as, rebuilding within existing building footprint so as to release green spaces for outdoor amenities and the protection of biodiversity and remnant woods on campus. Over the past years, we have maintained the hard and soft spaces at ratio of 1 in 2.5 with 71% green space, in terms of ground permeability.

In 2005, we said we will create more social spaces for our students, and we have now created more landscaped social spaces around the campus and improve pedestrian mobility through sheltered linkways. The former Moberly building was transformed into a lively student hub, well equipped for indoor and outdoor social interaction. We have also relocated our childcare facilities to the nearby Staff Apartments for accessibility and released the site for the new InnoVillage, a green project.

The 3D campus modeling system and tree database to aid campus planning and tree management have also completed. Read more on Campus Sustainability.

Objectives & Targets – 2007 to 2010
In future developments, all new buildings will be targeted to bear the BCA Green Mark Certification. There are plans to incorporate sustainability elements in the second phase of redevelopment of the School of Chemical & Life Sciences.

2005 – 2006 Financial Year 1 April 2005 to 31 March 2007
Objectives & Targets Performance & Efforts
Develop a campus modeling system to assist planning and management by 2007. Completed 3D model campus and tree management database for the tracking and inspection of trees on campus. The model is a multi functional tool for planning and teaching.
