Abstract: Sustainable development in commercial buildings has been the key topic that has been discussed over the past few decades in Singapore in order to improve the energy efficiency of buildings for costs savings, reducing the consumption of fossil fuels and providing a better environment for the people of the nation. This dissertation is focused on sustainable developments that are incorporated in existing buildings to transform them to be more energy efficient. Two case studies have been chosen. They are the Republic Plaza and the Six Battery Road. They are carefully studied and researched via site visits, interviews with relevant personnel of the buildings, journal and book articles and doing surveys from building professionals. However, the limitation faced in this dissertation is the energy data gathering process for both the case studies which are limited and restricted due to confidentiality issues. This dissertation seeks relevant criteria on different types of technology used in the construction of the building to help in the energy efficiency of the building. This allows the identification of the usage of sustainable developments for the construction of a sustainable building that can help save energy. This topic is important for the current Singapore context as the aim and mission of the government is to build an eco-green sustainable city to drive for a better present demand and continue providing for future needs of the people and also for the environment.
