Abstract: Building Automation System (BAS) and Control plays an important role in achieving environmental sustainability in building due to its wide application and its integrality in driving green building technologies. As Singapore aims for 80% of the buildings in Singapore to attain the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Certified Rating by 2030, the application of BAS and control in Green buildings can be explored to achieve this target. Hence, it is vital to study the effectiveness of BAS and control as well as the issues which would impact on their performances in the context of Singapore buildings. The objectives of the study are to establish the relationship between BAS and control and environmental sustainability and to study how its application can improve the green mark score of buildings. The study also hope to gain an insight to the issues affecting the green performance of BAS and control and provide a framework to help building owners attain higher Green Mark score and performance through better utilization of BAS and control in buildings. Survey questionnaire was conducted with industrial practitioners to find out about the building industry’s perception towards BAS and control application in Green buildings. Findings of the survey identified several indicators to measure BAS and control performance, issues affecting BAS and control and recommendations to improve its application. A framework named “Maximising Green Performance of BAS and Control” was designed around these findings to help Singapore buildings achieve higher Green Mark score whilst meeting the requirements of building occupants.
