Surbana Jurong wins awards for inclusive and age-friendly designs
Surbana Jurong (SJ) has won five Universal Design Mark awards by Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority (BCA). The BCA named 30 winners in total for the awards this year.
The BCA Universal Design Mark is a voluntary certification scheme that gives recognition to projects that incorporate user-friendly features to build an inclusive living environment.
The award-winning projects designed by SJ’s architects from Urban Development 1 and Urban Development 2, Singapore are:
|Project Name||Award Received|
|Ang Mo Kio Polyclinic and Senior Care Centre||Gold|
|Marine Cove @ East Coast Park||Gold|
Goh Hui Hoon, Senior Executive Architectural Associate from Urban Development 1, shared with us some of the universal design features of Kallang Trivista, one of the public residential projects that won the BCA Universal Design Mark GoldPLUS award.
“Universal designs are about inclusivity – designs that cater to as many users as possible. Our approach when designing Kallang Trivista is to focus on the users and come up with the spaces and features they would appreciate, and the ways they would use the spaces and amenities. Kallang Trivista is a good example of how we adopt user-centric designs to enhance connectivity and quality living to residents and the community,” said Hui Hoon.
“We are very proud to have won five out of the 30 awards this year,” she added.
Last year, Surbana Jurong won two BCA Universal Design Mark GoldPLUS awards for public residential developments Acacia Breeze @ Yishun and Punggol Topaz.
The awards will be presented to the winners on 13 June.
