May 13, 2014: DB Schenker's newest integrated logistics facility in Singapore, set to be completed in May 2014, has attained the Green Mark Platinum award, the highest standard under the Singapore's Building & Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark scheme.
The facility, located at the Tampines LogisPark, 15 minutes from Changi International Airport, will serve customers from key industries, such as Healthcare, Electronics, and Automotive, amongst others. The 41 million Euros facility will have a gross floor area of approximately 54,520 square meters spread across three floors.
The new DB Schenker facility will feature a passive design composite wall panel as part of the building perimeter, providing highly effective thermal insulation. A rainwater management system will contribute to enhanced water efficiency for landscape irrigation, while an efficient air-conditioning system will serve to minimize energy consumption and improve air flow distribution within the premises.
In terms of energy savings, an estimated 1,108 tons of CO2 will be saved annually. These are some components of an integrated building management system designed to create a green and sustainable environment. The BCA Green Mark program is a highly stringent and holistic benchmarking scheme which incorporates internationally recognized best practices in environmental design, construction, adoption of green building technologies, and environmental performance.
The BCA Green Mark scheme recognises buildings which aim to achieve a sustainable built environment, and rates buildings according to the five key criteria of Energy efficiency, Water efficiency, Environmental protection, Indoor environmental quality, and other green and innovative features that contribute to better building performance.
The Green Mark Platinum award is the highest achievable standard in the scheme, and is very much in-line with DB Schenker's goal of reducing its specific carbon emissions by 20 percent from 2006 to 2020. Currently, DB Schenker is setting new CO2 reduction standards worldwide.
DB Schenker is one of the leading providers of integrated contract logistics and supply chain management solutions in Singapore, with a current warehousing space capacity of more than 252,000 square meters.
