Building an Excellent School
We set off to build a new campus by engaging one of the most renown architects in the region, CPG Corporation. Known for their work with Singapore’s Changi Airport, Gardens by the Bay and many other splendid designs, CPG was chosen not just for their ability to provide innovative and comprehensive solutions to meet the needs of various complex infrastructure construction and architecture, but also because promoting sustainable development and innovation is the core of CPG Group ’s design philosophy.
ISA Science City is designed for the future of education: multiple spaces that can be quickly and easily remodeled to suit changing needs, the use of horticulture to bring our students closer to nature and sustainability for the development of students’ wellbeing and their sense of responsibility for the environment, leveraging on modern technology to help us manage lighting, sound and air quality throughout the school, infrastructure that allows expansion of 5G data and wireless connectivity and many more exciting features which brings great convenience and full support to the daily study and life of teachers and students.
Learning is not a “one-size-fits-all” thing. The same goes for the furniture that supports it. We’ve seen how the right tools can help spark inspiration for teachers and students.Because of this, we’ve never strayed from our focus. The furniture are designed for young minds. The flexibility, functionality, comfort, and design of the furniture are all the things that ISA Science City attaches great importance to, because in the end, the furniture serves only one purpose - to enable every student to develop his talent. Furniture suppliers such as Smith System from the US, provides innovative furniture solutions for K-12 education settings. With a century of experience, they’ve learned what makes pre-K-12 education different from any other environment and have made ISA Science City to cater to those unique qualities.
We Care, for Life
In addition to learning and living experiences, providing a healthy and safe campus environment is also a key focus of ISA Science City. Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) culture has begun from the very beginning of the development of ISA Science City’s campus. A sturdy foundation is created by setting goals, measuring our current safety protocols, and developing an improvement plan over time. This strategy is clearly communicated throughout all levels of the organisation.
ISA science city attaches great importance to healthy and safe campus environment, adopting the U.S. Green building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certification programme and China Assessment standard for green building. ISA Science CIty is committed to ensuring compliance by engaging the leading consultants in health and safety, China Academy of Building Research. With the joint efforts of experts, partners and team members, ISA science city meets international standards in terms of design, material selection, installation and testing.
When materials arrive on our construction site, the team performs detailed checks on material compliance with our requirements. Details include specifications, model numbers, original factory marks, signs of tampering or evidence of incorrect materials. Samples of key materials are sent for lab testing to ensure the integrity of safety standards compliance. After installation is complete, a team of CABR consultants will conduct an indoor air quality audit check to ensure that the air quality is within the requirements of LEED standards. When the interior fit-out of all buildings is completed in May 2020, experts from LEED will conduct a final inspection and test for compliance with all nine key areas and certification is issued to ISA Science City.
