Making a Mark in International Academic Research

A research paper by BCA and NUS on Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) in Singapore’s Green Mark buildings has been published in one of the field’s most prestigious journals.

In 2017, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) concluded a 3.5-year research study comparing the IEQ performance of Green Mark and non-Green Mark buildings in Singapore. IEQ refers to the quality of a building’s environment in relation to the health and well-being of those who occupy spaces within it.

The study surveyed over 360 building occupants and investigated eight Green Mark-certified office buildings and six non-Green Mark-certified office buildings. The research team then submitted its findings to Indoor Air Journal in June 2018.

The journal publication process involved independent critical peer review by at least three IEQ experts, in addition to the chief editor’s assessment to ensure the paper’s scientific accuracy, credibility, and relevance to the current body of literature. After this process, the research paper was accepted and published in November 2018.

This journal publication provides scientific endorsement that the study’s research methodology and findings were robust. It also serves as an avenue for the BCA Green Mark to make a positive contribution to this field of knowledge.
