Best Practices for Green and Gracious Builder – Improving Performance and Site Practices

Event code: 78048

The Green and Gracious Builder Scheme (GGBS) was launched in February 2009 to raise the environmental consciousness and professionalism in builders. The GGBS small and medium construction (SMC) was introduced in April 2014 to encourage SMC firms to work in a smart and responsible manner. GGBS is also a benchmark of a builder’s corporate social responsibility to the environment and the general public. Apart from setting standards for green and gracious practices, it also helps to improve the image of the builders and the built environment sector. To stay relevant with the dynamics of the industry, GGBS version 2.1 was introduced in October 2016.

This course aims to equip the participants with knowledge to implement and improve their green and gracious practices based on the latest requirements of GGBS version 2.1. By incorporating a visit to a site managed by a Green and Gracious Builders Award winner, this course will help participants gain first-hand information regarding the successful implementation of best green and gracious practices.

The following topics will be covered in the course:
• Introduction to GGBS and GGBS (SMC)
• Key features of GGBS v2.1
• How to obtain information on GGBS
• How to plan and implement GGBS
• Examples of best green and gracious practices
• Guidelines on preparing for GGBS assessment
• How to maintain and improve your GGBS
• Examples of innovation and exemplary practices
• Site visit to Green & Gracious Builder Award winner’s project

The course is conducted by experienced staff from Quality & Certification Department of Building and Construction Authority who regularly conducts audits for GGBS.

• Project Managers

Electronic Statement of Attendance (eSOA) will be awarded to participants who meet the attendance requirement.
