Abstract: This paper traces the developments of Building Controls in the 1980s to the present-day focus not only on public health and safety, but also on quality, productivity and sustainability in Singapore. The administrative aspects of Building Controls from a predominately paper-based platform to the current e-platform are also highlighted as part of the nation-wide efforts in Singapore to enhance efficacy and transparency in the application, appeal and approval process. The key important legislations relating to workplace safety and health, buildability and environmental sustainability are presented to demonstrate the government's resolve in these areas. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
