However, they are only concerned about the proportion of windows and size of light- wells and there are not more specific regulations on achieving healthy indoor air quality. Clause 39 4 determines that every water-closet, latrine, urinal and bathroom should be provided with natural ventilation by means of one or more openings having a total area of not less than 0. For buildings that are more than 8 storied high, clause 40 1 , establishes that the minimum size of light-wells should be not less than 15 sqm, being the minimum width 2.

These could not provide an acceptable ventilation by natural means in high-rise residential buildings where weaker stack effect due to lower temperature differences and heat build-up at the top of the light-wells might happen at certain levels Prajongsan, , Kotani et al.

However, the standard only suggests using CO2 sensors to control indoor air pollution. For indoor comfort cooling in air-conditioned spaces, this standard recommends the maximum air movement of 0. Malaysia, like many other countries, has recently developed several green rating tools. These include the provision of light-wells to promote the stack effect as we have seen already considered by UBBL , open plan layouts to promote cross ventilation, shading devices or overhangs to protect windows from sun radiation and naturally ventilated public spaces.

This rating tool also encourages the use of low Volatile Organic Compounds VOC materials and finishes to reduce the indoor air pollutants, but there is no minimum air movement and indoor air temperature recommendation.

This tool proposes several strategies to enhance natural ventilation in residential buildings. In addition to the strategies previously proposed by GBI such as the use of open plan layouts to promote cross ventilation and the provision of public spaces naturally ventilated, GreenRE encourages a more appropriate orientation of buildings, so that they face prevailing winds.

As in the case of GBI there are no recommendations for the minimum percentage of openings or indoor air temperature set. This document is at the moment available only for non-residential buildings.

In order to maintain good quality in the indoor air, this tool requires that all naturally ventilated spaces should be permanently open to and within 7. MyCREST proposes that the minimum average of air movement for naturally ventilated spaces should be no less than 0. Table 1 shows the comparison of natural ventilation strategies in the regulations, standards and the green rating tools used in Malaysia, as discussed above. Although there are significant improvements, in particular, the development of the recent MyCREST tool, Malaysia needs to address the need for a revision of its building regulations so that residential buildings are designed to minimise their carbon emissions and to improve the health and comfort of the occupants.

Learning from the Vernacular Architecture In the residential buildings at tropical regions cooling is more important than heating. According to the chapter of Buildings: Mitigation of Climate Change in the 5th Climate Change Assessment Report produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC in , residential buildings in tropical regions could lower the carbon emissions by introducing a design that could maintain indoor comfort temperatures without using any mechanical equipment.

The clear precedent is vernacular houses, which design have succeeded in achieving cooling and comfort Lucon et al. Although, obviously, they were not built in a dense urban context such as Kuala Lumpur. In the case of traditional houses in Malaysia, it took hundreds of years to refine a well- adapted design to the local climate. The key factors for achieving healthy indoor comfort in Malaysia s rural areas are the integration of building form, the use of lightweight materials and green surroundings.

Large overhangs, for example, prevent direct solar radiation and rain from entering the houses and timber-gap-floor on stilts promote fresh air intake from beneath the floor.

High pitched roofs with ventilation at the top exhaust warm air by the stack effect. Lightweight materials immediately release solar heat Lim, , and large openings on the facades, which effectively balance the external and internal air temperatures Kubota and Toe, An integrated natural ventilation strategy informed by these vernacular precedents has a great potential to reduce carbon emissions directly and at the same time ensuring the health and increased comfort of the occupants.

A study on the possible adaptation of these vernacular strategies to a modern social housing building has proved that an appropriate envelope and layout configuration could achieve the acceptable operative temperature of A full-height opening configuration was proposed with three elements and these are - main windows, fixed louvres and adjustable louvres.

Fixed louvres are introduced at the upper level of the internal walls to allow air to circulate throughout the units at every time. The proposed standard has also suggested that the depth of rooms should be decreased to enhance cross ventilation and the overhangs should be provided to protect all windows from solar radiation at any angles.

Further studies are being carried out to refine and validate the standard. Conclusion and recommendations Although current building regulations, standards and green rating tools have proposed many natural ventilation strategies in Malaysia, they have not been able to acknowledge the current and future climatic conditions of Kuala Lumpur. At the same time, they are not able to address the required improvements in o upa t s health and comfort as well as the reduction of the carbon emissions.

The UBBL, especially the clauses 39 1 and 40 1 that regulate sizes of openings and light well requirements, were informed by British building standards and have not been reviewed and further researched in accordance with local climate conditions.

These clauses, which have been used for 33 years without revision, should be revised and improved in order to reduce carbon emissions while ensuring occupant s health and comfort. Likewise, the standards MS and green rating tools GBI, GreenRE and MyCREST have failed to devise strategies that could reduce airborne particulate matter and toxic gases as well as to prevent convective, conductive and radiative heat from entering and permeating high-rise residential units in Kuala Lumpur.

However, this sole figure seems to be inappropriate to provide ventilation and filter airborne particulate matter from entering indoor spaces in high-rise residential buildings due to different heights factor.

Clause 40 1 of UBBL sets the requirement for a light-well of 15 sqm in buildings higher than 8 stories, which could not provide an acceptable ventilation by natural means in high-rise buildings due to weak stack effect and the absence of wind-force ventilation. Further studies should be carried out to test the appropriateness of these requirements to achieve suitable ventilation while ensuring the health of the building occupants and increase comfort levels in indoor spaces.

Building regulations in Malaysia, which are concerned about the natural ventilation, should be revised in order to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions as well as to deal with the challenges of heat stress and air pollution which affect the comfort and health of the building s occupants.

This revision should take into consideration the critical conditions, which allow for natural ventilation to enhance air movement, reduce the airborne particulate matter and maintain the acceptable operative temperature. By improving the regulations and maximising the potential of natural ventilation, high-rise residential buildings in Kuala Lumpur would become healthy and comfortable places to live in and great contributors to the mitigation of climate change.
