Zhongshan Road Pedestrian Street, Xiamen, China
To provide the green wall system to install an approx. 220 sqm green wall on the hotel building’s façade.
VersiWall® GM (VGM) modules each contain a geotextile bag filled with a primarily inorganic soil-less lightweight planting media. Pre-planting of the modules 6 to 8 weeks prior to installation in a controlled nursery environment enabled selected green wall plants to be firmly established and orientated vertically.
Pilaster mounting rails were bolted directly to the wall to facilitate firm and secure anchorage of the VGM® modules to the wall.
The green wall measuring 6 metres in height is a significant aesthetic feature for the hotel to welcome its visitors. In addition, the green wall will improve the air quality in the area and assist to keep the hotel building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
