* Discussion:
- The room must be provided with natural lighting and ventilation with the area of window must be more than 10% of the floor area and the openings must not less than 5% of the floor area.

- For this room, the floor area = 2.62m x 3.52m
= 9.22 m2
The window area = 1.78m x 1.195m
= 2.13 m2
Natural lighting = (2.13 m2 / 9.22m2) x 100%
= 23.1 %
23.1 % > 10% (comply with UBBL)
Natural ventilation = 23.1% > 5% (comply with UBBL)
* Hence this room in Taman Bunga Raya is complying with Uniform Building By Law.

Clause 39(3)
* ” Every room used for purpose of conducting classes in a school shall be provided with natural lighting and natural ventilation by means of one or more windows having a total area of not less than 20% of clear floor area of such rooms and shall have openings capable of allowing a free uninterrupted passage of air of not less than 10% of such floor area.” * Date: November 26, 2012

* Discussion:
* The classroom must be provided with natural lighting and ventilation with the area of window must be more than 20% of the floor area and the openings must not less than 10% of the floor area. * For this classroom, the floor area = 9.08m x 7.465m

= 67.78m2
The window area = 1.785m x 1.45m
= 2.59m2
6 windows = 6 x 2.59m2
= 15.54m2
Natural lighting = (15.54m2/ 67.78m2) x 100%
= 22.93%
22.93% > 20% (comply with UBBL)
Natural ventilation = 22.93% > 10% (comply with UBBL)
* So this classroom is complying with UBBL.
Clause 39(4)
* “Every water- closet, latrine, urinal or bathroom shall be provided with natural lighting and natural ventilation by means of one or more openings having a total area of not less than 0.2 square meters per water-closet, urinal latrine or bathroom and such openings shall be capable of allowing a free uninterrupted passage of air.” * Date: November 26, 2012

* Discussion:
* There are one water-closet and one bathroom inside.
* 2 x 0.2 = 0.4
* Area of window = 0.625m x 0.635m
= 0.40m2
* Since the opening has a total area of 0.40m2 which is equal, hence it complies with the UBBL. B) Clause 42.1
* The area of first habitable room in a residential building shall be not less than 11 square meters, * Date : 30/11/12
