The key objectives of the Surbana Jurong-NTU Corporate Lab are to translate research outcomes into practical and viable solutions that are focused around three core themes: Intelligent Urban Solutions, Active Solutions for Sustainability, and Future of Construction and Underground.

Intelligent Urban Solutions

Urban digitisation is key in planning cities and building management and this is increasingly achieved firstly through digitisation and integration of the design services value chain and secondly through effective use of IOT technology, mobile and wearable devices. The Corporate Lab focuses on indoor and outdoor systems, and covers various topics such as cost effectiveness, maintenance, design and comfort.

Active Solutions for Sustainability

The objective is to achieve energy savings from the Code-established baseline for urban area and buildings, and look at various parameters and metrics on how sustainability impacts liveability.

Future of Construction and Underground

Our research will explore new capabilities to optimise LNG storage below ground (i.e. basement or caverns), including containment membrane materials and harnessing the cold energy generated.
