HOW THE GREEN KARMA IS GOING TO RUN OVER THE BROWN DOGMA or
THE FUTURE FOR SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS
Sustainability or ESD, most commonly called “green”, has become a mainstream political issue around the world in the last 10 years. Central to increases in energy efficiency and reductions in greenhouse gases (so called E2G2) are improvements in urban planning and building. But this hope, more like hype, is misplaced, either being simplistic in its intentions, or missing the mark in its effects. This talk discusses the current orthodoxy and shows how a culture of “real green” design could lead to a more sustainable future.

Prosperity and high economic growth in Malaysia have created a high demand for construction activities. As a consequence, this has attracted a huge number of foreign workers into this country to take up employment on site as unskilled labour doing manual jobs. Despite their contributions, the country is in a quagmire with a host of problems such as low quality works, delays, wastages, social problems, diseases, etc. As such, some form of government intervention is highly needed. Industrialisation of the construction industry is seen as the only feasible way forward. The government has laid out a comprehensive national Industrialised Building System (IBS) Road Map for the construction industry players to adopt in the industrialisation programme of the construction industry.

Inspection of buildings is becoming a necessity for newly handed over properties as well as for old buildings for maintenance purposes.With rising consumer expectations on quality workmanship, and for continuous proper maintenance & management of properties there is a demand for and in need of independent inspections to help look out for building defects that – IF go unreported or undetected – maybring financial and social impacts to the owners and communities at large. Know about building defects, learn how to identify them with the right remedies.
