One North Residences – Singapore
To provide a modular green wall system to enable vertical greening of 2 separate high walls totaling 50 m2 located at the 8th floor of the condominium.
Stainless steel parallel support beams were installed onto the walls on which anchoring pilasters were welded. To allow adequate time for plant establishment, Vertical Greening Modules (VGMs), comprising a geotextile bag filled with soil-less lightweight planting media were pre-planted in a nursery environment 3 months prior to installation. The VGMs were then encased in metal support frames on-site and mounted onto the pilasters, followed by an automated drip irrigation and fertilisation systems, and installed for each of the walls. The Elmich modular system allows easy removal and remounting of individual VGM for maintenance or replacement whenever necessary.
The green walls grace both sides of the area fronting the gymnasium and the lounge and recreational area and provide a pleasant cool ambience for residents.
