Synopsis

Sustainable building design and green building practices have the potential to save energy, save money and improve the quality of human habitat across Malaysia. They can also contribute to water conservation, more efficient use of raw materials, and ecosystem health around the globe. Many experts have singled out the building sector as having the most cost-effective opportunities for reducing carbon emission in fact, many building related opportunities are cost-neutral, or even cost-positive, to the building owner.

These tremendous benefits have made sustainable and green building practices a fast-growing trend and gaining major importance in the Malaysian building industry. Workforce skills and capabilities are essential to realizing the initiatives made by CIDB through many of its programs. Furthermore, it is important to raise awareness of the benefits of sustainable and green building, encourage the creation of green projects, and represent the collective interest of each community in a built environment that supports the health and well-being of the public. It is also to foster a deeper adoption of sustainable practices among the building professionals in Malaysia.

Background

The lack of affordable houses in Malaysia has been an acute problem for a very long time. Although the problem is being realised and projects on developing affordable houses for low-income group are being undertaken recently, the construction industry finds meeting the demand of affordable houses is still far-fetched. This workshop will focus on how to enhance the construction productivity by applying lean thinking principles to the construction environment,

CREAM and CIDB organised a workshop on Guidelines for House Manufacturing on the 27-29th of July 2018 at The Everly, Putrajaya. Expertise from the industry came to participate to share their knowledge and experience on Design for Manufacturing and Assembly.

SYNOPSIS

Water Efficiency (WE) generally underscores three main areas i.e minimise usage of potable water, reduce wastage and use of alternate source of water. Among these three areas, reduction of portable water has high impact on carbon reduction. Hence WE is set as one of criteria in MyCREST and stipulated in all the three stages of MyCREST certification.

INTRODUCTION

 

The CIDB Act 520 (Amendment 2011) has authorised Lembaga Pembangunan Industri Pembinaan Malaysia (CIDB) to enforce and regulate the construction products as per Section 33C (1), Section 33D (1) and Section 33D (2). All construction materials/products listed in the Fourth Schedule of Act 520 (Amendment 2011) are required to obtain CIDB’s Certificate of Standards Compliance or “Perakuan Pematuhan Standard” (PPS). Ready-Mixed Concrete is already included in the Fourth Schedule.

Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia and Construction Research Institute of Malaysia (CREAM) through the sustainable Construction Excellence Centre (MAMPAN) will organize a  name and logo design competition for the sustainable infrastructure rating tool. The competition aims to gain an attractive design for name and logo to be used as the official name and logo of sustainable infrastructure rating tool.

Greetings,

 

CIDB Malaysia and Construction Research Institute of Malaysia (CREAM) through its newly established Sustainable Construction Excellence Centre (MAMPAN) will organize a training session for MyCREST Qualified Professional (QP)

 

WHAT IS MYCREST?

 

MyCREST stands for Malaysian Carbon Reduction and Environmental Sustainability Tool, a tool that guides every stakeholder involved in the design, construction, operation & maintenance of building by adopting sustainable development practices. It also aims to quantify the actual carbon emission at every stage of the building life cycle. MyCREST aims to guide, assist, quantify and thereby reduce the built environment’s impact in terms of reduced carbon emissions and other environmental impact. It also aims to integrate socioeconomic considerations related to the built environment and urban development.
