Quantum Automation, a subsidiary of EDMI, was awarded the Minister's Award (MND), during 2017 National Day Observance Ceremony, for its work on the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) SkyLab project.
Quantum Automation delivered the Data Acquisition Building
Management System (DABMS) for SkyLab and is extremely honoured to have been a
part of the overall project.
The BCA SkyLab is the worlds’ first high rise rotable
laboratory for the tropics. It was officially
launched by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in July 2016, and is the regional leader in sustainable building solutions.
looks forward to a continued relationship as BCA makes new breakthroughs and
provides valuable insights; develop high-performance innovations and solutions
around energy efficient technologies; and help reduce our everyday energy
consumption. We applaud and will continue to support BCA: driving and pushing
the boundaries in the green building movement.
Built on the rooftop of an 8-storey building at BCA Academy, the BCA SkyLab
marks a milestone in the research, development and demonstration of green
building technologies in the region. This state-of-the-art test facility was
developed in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
(LBNL) in the US, inspired by LBNL’s FLEXLAB (Facility for Low Energy
Experiment in Buildings) and tailored for Singapore’s tropical climate.
With its “plug-n-play” design concept, the BCA SkyLab is capable of testing
individual building components as well as integrated systems. Technologies such
as lighting, air-conditioning, mechanical ventilation and building facade can
be tested in various configurations under real operating and climatic
conditions. This provides reliable and comprehensive evaluation of building
technologies, facilitating technology improvement and adoption by the industry.
One of the unique features of the BCA SkyLab is a 360-degree rotatable
capability, allowing the test of technology performance under different
