Abstract: In the last few years, the problem of global warming has become a growing concern worldwide. Investigations are carried out on ways to mitigate this growing problem. Despite the increasing global temperature, green spaces are still continuously cleared to make way for urban developments. As green spaces diminishes, some form of green spaces needs to be incorporated into the urban built environment. Various researches have been conducted to identify viable means to increase green spaces in urban environment. Since then, many countries have been incorporating these means into their developments, such as skyrise greenery, to contribute a part in lowering the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect and global warming effect. Over the years, Singapore started to include skyrise greening designs into buildings. Due to space constraints in Singapore, the integration of green roofs into building designs has been on the rise. Cities around the world have seen an increase in interest and implementation of rooftop greenery in recent years. Implementation of rooftop greenery systems brings about numerous benefits such as enhancing aesthetics of buildings, lowering atmospheric temperature, improving air quality and reducing building’s cooling load. While there have been many studies done on the benefits of green roofs in Singapore, there is a lack of research on maintenance of green roofs in Singapore. In this notion, this report aims to examine the various maintenance issues of the accessible green roofs, the solutions for the issues and the annual maintenance costs in Singapore.
