Taylor’s University strives to sustain the natural environment while building, maintaining & operating our various Academic, Administrative, Research, Labs, Hostels and Recreational space in our Campus. By following and taking into consideration Sustainable building practices, Energy Efficiency guidelines and strong partnerships with the Utility providers and Energy Commission, our TU Campus will move towards achieving our Green building performance.
Green buildings integrate many aspects of Sustainability including water, Energy and food. Our Campus will be more informed on how and why projects are built and provide proactive inputs to the Strategic Long Range Development Plans. Building upwards rather than building outwards will ensure greater use density. The Campus plan to use sustainable toilets with very low water flow rates and passive renewable Solar Energy to power up its Air Conditioning and other systems. More metering and retrofits to the existing buildings with the integration of Sustainability criteria/ Standards. Engagement of more Campus students to co-lead/ support the Green building and Energy retrofit projects implementation
Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) encompasses the conditions inside our building at Taylor’s University – air quality, lighting, thermal conditions, ergonomics—and their effects on occupants or residents.
Strategies for addressing IEQ include those that protect human health, improve quality of life, as well as reduce stress and eliminate potential injuries. Better indoor environmental quality can enhance the lives of building occupants, increase the resale value of the building and reduce liability for building owners.
Since the personnel costs of salaries and benefits typically surpass operating costs of an office building, strategies that improve employees’ health and productivity over the long run can have a large return on investment. IEQ goals often focus on providing stimulating and comfortable environments for occupants and minimizing the risk of building-related health problems.
To make our buildings where people feel good and perform well, project teams must balance selection of strategies that promote efficiency and conservation with those that address the needs of the occupants and promote well-being. Ideally, the chosen strategies do both: the solutions that conserve energy, water and materials also contribute to a great indoor experience.
Green buildings with good indoor environmental quality protect the health and comfort of building occupants. High-quality indoor environments also enhance productivity, decrease absenteeism, improve the building’s value, and reduce liability for building designers and owners.
Taylor's have adopted a Water Loss Prevention Programme and initiated concrete measures to minimise water wastage and to promote efficient water usage through leveraging on natural sources such as rainwater.READ MORE
Sustainable transport planning at Taylor’s University aims to reduce the number of cars on the road. This involves three main strategies: mobility options, connectivity and land use patterns.READ MORE
A large expenditure of time, money and energy routinely goes into the preparation of food for the Campus community. This area of campus operations consumes a significant portion of resources and generates large volumes of wastes.READ MORE
