A scheme to get small construction firms to adopt green work practices and be gracious was launched on Thursday by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA).

Under the voluntary scheme, firms are required to implement measures to minimise dust and noise. This will benefit residents who live near projects handled by small firms.

Separately, BCA also announced a revised Green and Gracious Builder Scheme for larger firms.
