Rivervale Mall is a Singapore Building and Construction Authority (“BCA”) Green Mark GoldPLUS three-storey suburban retail mall that provides a mix of retail, lifestyle, healthcare and dining options. With responsible living embedded as part of its business culture and philosophy, Rivervale Mall is committed to continuously incorporating sustainability into its business processes in a cost-effective way.
Energy consumption is one of the highest costs in running any building. Rivervale Mall is equipped with energy-saving features to cater to the varying lighting needs in common areas, lifts and the control systems for lifts, escalators and travellators.
The use of natural light illumination of the mall’s atrium through its expansive skylight and low and no-cost energy efficiency measures, such as shutting off escalator motors at night and setting schedules for the air conditioning system and lighting in qualifying areas, have helped to reduce energy consumption at Rivervale Mall.
To optimise its chiller plant, an energy monitoring system was installed to monitor its efficiency upkeep.
As part of stakeholder engagement, Rivervale Mall collaborates with the tenants to reduce water consumption and encourages shoppers to deposit their waste into respective recycle bins provided in mall. For tenancy fit-outs and renovation work, non-toxic paints and non-harmful agents are used.
In FY2021, Rivervale Mall installed a paper recycling machine to promote recycling. Over 8,074 kg of paper has been collected since its installation on 13 August 2021.
Indoor Environmental Enhancements
To ensure clean circulation of air given the pandemic, 100% fresh air is introduced into Rivervale Mall two hours before opening and an hour after closing.
