FORD AVENUE PRIVATE RESIDENCE

Location

Ford Avenue, Singapore

Specifications

To provide pedestal system for raised decking installed at swimming pool surrounds.

To provide paver supports for installation of raised walkway pavers.

Solution

Decking

VersiJack® pedestals support the timber bearers for the installation of raised deck flooring surrounding the swimming pool.

Bearer holders attached to the pedestals were used to keep the timber joists firmly in place prior to and during installation of the decking.

The void under the raised decked areas allow essential pipes and services to be unobtrusively hidden and assist surface water to drain away quickly which is especially important around a swimming pool.

Paving

VersiJack® pedestals support raised pavers for the creation of a side walkway of the house concealing any unsightly services beneath. Necessary adjustments for slope and height were made with the Slope Corrector and locking ring system in the pedestal respectively to create level flooring. The gaps, created by using Spacer Tabs on the pedestals, between the pavers facilitate drainage of water from the pavers back into the water feature.

FLO RESIDENCE

Location

Punggol Field Walk, Singapore

Specifications

To provide the pedestal system to support installation of pavers surrounding the swimming pool.

Solution

VersiJack® height and slope adjustable pedestals were used to support heavy 600 mm X 600 mm granite pavers surrounding the swimming pool of the condominium.

The use of Spacer Tabs secured on the top of the Elmich pedestal enabled constant gaps between pavers. This application eliminated the need for surface drains and allowed surface water to drain away rapidly, keeping the pavers dry for the safety of the residents and visitors.

As the installation surface was sloped, Slope Correctors were used to allow adjustments of up to 5% to maintain a level pool deck.

Moreover, the raised pool deck enabled essential M&E service pipes to be hidden in the void space created beneath the raised pavers. During maintenance and repair work, workers can easily access these service pipes by lifting the pavers, saving time and cost instead of being subjected to the risks of removing embedded pavers.

In addition, VersiJack®’s resistance to mould and algae makes it the perfect choice when used in wet areas.

Elmich Pedestals provide a very practical solution for desirable pool decks for different kind of projects with its versatile height range and models.

ALOHA LOYANG

Location

Pasir Ris, Singapore

Specifications

To provide a rainwater retention solution to harvest and reuse water for irrigation.

Solution

Large pits were excavated to specification on-site. The base of each pit is compacted and leveled with a layer of coarse sand and lined with an impermeable membrane.

190 sets of VersiTank® units were then assembled on-site and positioned in the two respective pit locations.

Subsequently, the tanks were covered over with geotextile lapped and sealed at all joints to envelope the entire exposed tank surface area.

The retained rainwater is used for irrigation of surrounding turf and landscape.

Retention of rainwater also prolongs the residence time of run-off during torrential downpours, effectively reducing the incidence of waterlogging or ponding.

JI HOTEL XIAMEN

Location

Zhongshan Road Pedestrian Street, Xiamen, China

Specifications

To provide the green wall system to install an approx. 220 sqm green wall on the hotel building’s façade.

Solution

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.

PRIVATE RESIDENCE @ STEVENS ROAD

Location

Stevens Road, Singapore

Specifications

To provide the green wall system to install a green wall on one block and a red wall on the entrance wall of the bungalow.

Solution

VersiWall® GP (VGP) proprietary mounting panels were first mounted onto the 5 metre high wall of the bungalow. Subsequently, 744 VGP trays were easily installed onto the mounting panels according to the pre-determined design creating a green wall totalling 27 sq m. Inadvertent dislodgment of the VGP trays by inclement weather was prevented by the insertion of anti-lift arms into the hooks of the trays, effectively locking the trays to the mounting panel. An automated irrigation system was incorporated to deliver irrigation and nutrients to the plants in the individual trays on the wall at programmed intervals for pre-set durations with the aid of a control panel.

Similarly, the 2.6 sq m red wall was established using the Elmich VGP system comprising of the mounting panels and trays.

Container Office

Location

Joan Road – Singapore

Specifications

To provide a green wall system for the establishment of an instant mature green wall.

Solution

A metal framework for the welded mesh was secured and positioned in place. VGP Mesh Brackets were mounted on the horizontal strips of the metal frame to anchor the welded mesh.

The VersiWall® GT (VGT) Pilasters were positioned and firmly fastened using stainless steel bolts. Subsequently, support bolts were installed in preparation for the VGT Trays to be mounted.

Pre-planted VGT Trays are delivered on-site, and mounted on the support bolts.

Irrigation pipes are inserted through the holes of the Pilasters unobtrusively. An automated irrigation system with an integrated control panel enables delivery of irrigation water and fertilizer to the plants of the green walls at pre-set times and programmed durations.

The VGT green wall totaling 5 sqm installed at the fitted container delivers functional aesthetics, providing thermal insulation and a solution to enhance environmental sustainability.

Gardens By The Bay Children’s Garden

Location

Children’s Garden at the Gardens By The Bay, Singapore

Specifications

To provide an ultra-lightweight green roof system to establish green roof on existing rooftops

Solution

VersiDrain® 25P water retention and drainage trays were placed directly over the RC rooftops, ensuring that individual trays overlap by at least one cell row.  A geotextile filter fabric was next laid to completely blanket the trays. Geotextile perimeter upturn of about 15cm is glued to the side walls.

EnviroMix PB, a growing media in the form of a lightweight planting board with high water absorbency and retention properties were next installed. Arranged in rows over the geotextile one abutting against the other without the need to affix, the planting board is extremely easy to install. They are also easily cut to fit into or around irregular areas on the roof.

Minimal regular loose media material is required. Only 50mm of appropriate soil mix (depending on plant species selected) was spread over the planting boards for in-situ planting of selected drought-tolerant plants to establish the green roofs on three rooftops at the Children’s Garden.  For planting of turf/grass, no additional loose media is required over the planting boards making installation much cleaner. Pearl grass was effectively used to create maintenance paths on the green roofs.

Vital nutrients incorporated into the board during its manufacture help support initial plant establishment whilst its high water absorbency and retention properties help to reduce irrigation frequency.  In prolonged dry spells the addition of an appropriate irrigation system helps to maintain and sustain the green roofs.

More than just helping the rooftops to aesthetically blend with the lush greenery of the gardens, the extensive green roofs complement existing solar panels on an adjacent rooftop to support environmental sustainability.  By providing an insulation barrier against the elements on the rooftops, the green roofs also offer protection for the waterproofing as well as reduce heat absorption.
