An office that saves both space and energy with the use of cutting-edge technology will be the first of its kind here in Singapore and a key feature of the United World College South East Asia’s (UWCSEA), once a new building is completed on its campus next year.

The new office will use a method to cool room temperatures that is more efficient, which could potentially reduce its energy consumption by nearly 40 per cent. A new construction technique will also allow developers to construct three floors of office space on just two.
