Much change has come our way since GBI was introduced to the country. At its inception, GBI had recognized that in order for the idea of green buildings to be embraced by the rakyat, a very important thing must take place : awareness. One of the very important topics that is central to the awareness of green building design is solar heat gain in buildings. GBI, which is jointly set up and owned by PAM and ACEM, has raised this awareness on a regular basis to architects, and we will continue to do so. It helps bring a better understanding through education that all of us can play a role in combating solar heat gain, all of us, ie starting with architects and engineers, to other stakeholders, federal, state and local governments, developers, contractors, building material manufacturers and distributors and house buyers.  In line with the recent announcement by Penang State Government on the implementation of the latest amendment to the UBBL ie Clause 38A, the seminar will address the details of the amendment with a special focus on the concept and calculation of OTTV and Roof U-values, the role of PSPs, and how we can meet the requirements of Clause 38A through a few simple suggested submission requirements.
