17-21D Simei Street 4, Singapore
To provide green wall system to establish vertical greenery on the clubhouse façade, including the convex wall face of the 2nd level, and also a free-standing wall at the main entrance to the condominium.
Vertical Greening Modules (VGM), each containing a geotextile bag filled with EnviroMix® GW, a primarily inorganic soil-less lightweight planting media, were pre-planted in a controlled nursery environment. This process allows the selected plants to be firmly established and also vertically orientated before installation.
The living walls cover 140 sq m of the clubhouse façade. VGM modules were anchored onto stainless steel pilasters bolted to the concrete wall to a height of 15 m which includes the convex wall of the second level. At the fifth level, the VGM modules were bolted directly onto a metal framework, which enables pairs of adjacent vertical rows of VGM modules to swing inwards like windows. This allows easy maintenance access to the VGM modules mounted 15 m from ground level.
A 56 sq m living wall anchored onto a free-standing metal framework at the entrance, greets residents and visitors to the condominium. The Elmich VGM Green Walls blend seamlessly with the condominium’s landscape gardens to provide a visually appealing green environment and also help in the condominium’s environmental objectives.
