Design Guidelines

Overview

Developed by PUB, the ABC Waters Design Guidelines provide reference to developers and industry professionals on how to implement environmentally sustainable green features or ABC Waters design features in their developments. This is part of PUB’s effort to get partners from the 3P sectors to jointly work on a common vision of sustainable water management.

The Latest Edition

In 2014, PUB has updated the guidelines with more locally built examples to showcase developers, architects and engineers who have incorporated the ABC Waters concept in their developments. This new publication was launched by Minister, Prime Minister's Office, Second Minister for the Environment and Water Resources and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ms Grace Fu, on 6 June 2014, in conjunction with the Singapore International Water Week 2014.

This set of reference material aims to better serve the industry’s needs and continue to build up technical expertise in the industry. To view the full document, click on the book cover below [PDF].
