Abstract: As Singapore progresses towards a green and smart nation, increasing emphasis have been placed on its impact on the wellness and benefits green buildings bring to its occupants. By looking at the three iconic green campuses in Singapore – NUS SDE 4, NTU The Hive, and SMU-X, this research study aims to understand the subjective performance and perception occupants have of green buildings. Literature review were done to understand the design of each building as well as the features and unique characteristics incorporated. Through the findings, subjective measurements were also conducted through online survey questionnaire for occupants of these three buildings. These responses were throughly analysed and compared with primary research findings. Consistent with the literature review, temperature, lighting and noise were identified to be the top 3 problematic areas, though green buildings did generally have a better rating in all aspects. Following the identification of the top three issues, recommendations were made through studying new and emerging smart technologies as well as looking at overseas case studies. This research study therefore seeks to cover the gaps of green buildings through better thought through design features as well as the incorporation of smart technology.
