Specifications

To provide green wall system to install living walls in an office

Solution

The easy to install and significantly mess-free VGP Green Wall system is the ideal system for the installation of living walls in an office. Selected green wall plants were planted off-site into the VGP Trays. This then enabled the planted trays hung onto simple mesh racks to be easily transported to site, avoiding mess from media spills associated with in-situ planting on site.

The pre-planted trays were then mounted according to a pre-determined design and pattern onto VGP proprietary mounting panels installed from floor-to-ceiling at the reception and on three pillar columns, each on two sides, in the open-plan work area of the office.

 

In addition to firm anchorage with 3 pairs of hooks, Anti-Lift Arms inserted into the individual VGP Trays lock them securely to the mounting panels, effectively preventing inadvertent dislodgement of the trays. A drainage tube installed to connect the water discharge outlets of the bottommost row of trays channel excess water away, and keep the immediate area beneath the green walls dry.

 

The VGP Green Walls enliven the office environment and are a source of relaxation and stress relief, for the occupants as well as visiting guests, clients and customers.

Procter & Gamble (P&G) Innovation Centre

Location

Biopolis, Singapore

Specifications

To provide the pedestal system to support bearers for installation of wooden decking at landscaped courtyard.
To provide sub-surface drainage cells for drainage in planter boxes.

Solution

VersiJack®
VersiJack® pedestals were used to support bearers for installation of three raised wooden decked areas that complement water features at the landscaped courtyard of the building.
Bearers were secured with self-tapping screws to Bearer Holders on the pedestals to ensure that they do not shift and remained firmly in place during and after installation of the wooden decking. Where installation surface was sloped to fall for drainage, Slope Correctors were used to allow adjustments of up to 5% to maintain a level decking surface.
Essential services were hidden beneath the raised decking whilst gaps maintained between individual panels of the decking allowed surface water to drain away, both features combined provide safe enjoyment of the verdant area and water features at the courtyard.

 

VersiCell®
VersiCell® sub-surface drainage modules were used to line the base as well as the sides of planter boxes. A geotextile filter fabric was installed over the modules before 100mm layer of sand followed by the media for planting were put in to enable planting of plants ranging from ground cover plants and shrubs to trees. The drainage modules prevent waterlogging and ponding in the planter boxes and help to maintain robust healthy plant growth at the landscaped courtyard.

Specifications

To provide pedestal system for installation of decking at E-Deck and sky terraces and installation of pavers over a water feature.
To provide sub-surface drainage system in planter boxes for Intensive Green Roof application.
To provide root-resistant waterproofing in planter boxes.

Solution

VersiJack®
Over 10,000 VersiJack® pedestals support the bearers beneath wooden panels for the installation of extensive wooden decked areas at the 10th and 19th levels of the building. Slope Correctors were used to allow adjustments up to 5% to ensure that a level paver and decking surface is maintained throughout. The void under the raised decked areas allow essential services to be unobtrusively hidden and assist surface water to drain quickly away whilst at the same time reduce heat transfer from the decked surfaces to the roof.
VersiJack® pedestals also support pavers for the installation of a water feature at the Sommerset entrance to the premises. 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.

 

VersiCell®
VersiCell® sub-surface drainage modules totalling more than 1,000 sq m were installed directly over the Evalon® waterproofing membrane in the planter boxes of the E-Deck and sky terraces. They provide a void beneath planting media to enable expeditious transport of excess water to drainage outlets and prevent waterlogging. A non-woven geotextile filter fabric placed over the VersiCell® allowed a 100mm sand layer to be spread on top followed by the soil media for planting.
In the densely built environment of Orchard Road, the over 1,000 sq m of skyrise greenery form a living barrier that helps to shield and reduce heat absorption by the building. This lowers temperature within the building as well as the ambient temperature of the building’s immediate surroundings. In addition to subsequently reducing energy consumption for air-conditioning and helping to mitigate negative impact brought about by the heat island phenomenon, the skyrise greenery also performs a vital urban stormwater management role.

 

Evalon®
Waterproofing protection in the planter boxes was provided by nearly 6,000 sq m of a root-resistant fully adhered layer of Evalon® V PVC/EVA terpolymer membrane ideally suited for intensive and extensive green roof application.

To provide at the E-deck :

  1. Green wall system for installation of green walls
  2. Bearer support for installation of decking at pool surrounds
  3. Drainage cells for sub-surface drainage in planter boxes

Solution

VersiWall® GP (VGP) 2060

Two walls, each facing the other, at the E-deck were turned into living walls using the VGP 2060 Green Wall system.  BRC wire mesh installed onto vertical metal hollow bars bolted to the walls provided the platform for mounting the VGP 2060 Trays.

VGP 2060 Trays were planted in-situ with a selection of pre-grown plants to provide a palette of attractive leafy green plants in a variety of green shades to create the eye-pleasing living walls.  The planted VGP 2060 Trays were hung onto the wire mesh to form attractive living lines and patterns.  Anti-lift arms were inserted to prevent individual trays on the wall from inadvertent dislodgement.

 

SpiraPave®

Bearer joists below the wooden-decked pool surrounds are supported by SpiraPave® pedestals.  Accessories of the height adjustable pedestal including Bearer Holders to secure the bearers on the pedestal and Slope Correctors to compensate for any slope to fall on the installation surface were employed to create the firm and level wooden deck.

 

VersiCell®

VersiCell® sub-surface drainage modules provided the drainage in planter boxes to prevent waterlogging and ponding in the planted areas.

 

Elmich is the complete solution provider on the E-deck of the condominium ensuring optimum harmony, elegance and comfort, and balance between the residents and nature.

Private Residence @ The Interlace

Location

Block 210 Depot Road, Singapore

Specifications

To provide green wall system for installation of green wall at basement courtyard 

Solution

Proprietary Mounting Panels of the VersiWall® GP (VGP) 2060 green wall system were bolted directly to the wall to enable easy mounting of VGP Trays. The panels were installed from right to left starting from the bottom row in sequential order.

An automated irrigation system was installed to provide delivery of water and fertilizer at pre-determined times for pre-programmed durations.  The irrigation is divided into two zones.  The upper zone supplies irrigation from top of the wall to the halfway point on the wall and the other from halfway point to the bottommost row of trays of the wall. Excess water is discharged through the drainage outlets of the bottommost row of trays connected to a larger pipe laid below the wall. This keeps the immediate vicinity of the green wall dry.

VGP Trays were pre-planted off-site and delivered to site using transporting racks comprised of welded wire mesh tied to an A-frame.   The planted trays were anchored to the mounting panels from right to left starting from the bottom row, a sequence which allows easy close planting and is most systematic and efficient.  Plant palette provided by a selection of suitable plants created a pleasant design on the wall.  Anti-lift Arms were inserted to prevent inadvertent dislodgement of the trays from the wall.

Refreshing and eye-pleasing, the wall of living plants provides the elements of tranquility, peace and quiet, creating the quintessential ambience for respite and to unwind from events of the day when the occupants of the apartment return.

Specifications

To provide turf stabilisation along fire engine access way
To provide sub-surface drainage in planter boxes
To provide water retention and drainage on extensive green roof

Solution

Turf Stabilisation
TurfPave® XD positioned onto compacted sand laid over the compacted substrate of the path created to provide fire engine access way. Infilled with a sandy soil mix TurfPave® XD provides a stable and firm substrate for turf establishment along the access way. When not in use as an access way for fire-fighting operations or emergency purposes, the access pathway remains green and aesthetically pleasing and can withstand constant daily pedestrian traffic.
Rainwater readily infiltrates into the compacted sand base below and then slowly into the substrate before eventual discharge into the local drainage system. An impermeable access way, like an asphalt road on the other hand, will not allow run-off to infiltrate and thus contribute to run-off volumes and stormwater management problems.

 

Landscape Roof / Sub-surface Drainage
VersiCell® sub-surface drainage modules were installed to line the interior of planter boxes, at the base and also the sides, to provide a void beneath planting media to enable expeditious transport of excess water to drainage outlets to prevent waterlogging. A non-woven geotextile filter fabric over the drainage modules form a filter separation layer that allowed a 100mm sand layer to be spread on top followed by the soil media. Plants from shrubs to trees create the lush landscaped gardens amidst abundant water features.

 

Extensive Green Roof
VersiDrain® 25P drainage and water retention trays were positioned on the RC rooftops of the clubhouse and two other buildings. A geotextile filter fabric laid over the trays enabled EnviroMix®, a primarily inorganic planting media, to be placed for planting of selected drought-tolerant plants that drape over the sides to form attractive skirts around the rooftops.

Specifications

To provide turf stabilization along fire engine access
To provide sub-surface drainage in planter boxes and beneath TurfPave along fire engine access

Solution

TurfPave®
TurfPave® XD is positioned onto compacted sand over a geotextile filter blanketing a sub-soil drainage base layer provided by VersiCell® placed directly over the constructed RC path. Infilled with a sandy soil mix the grass paver provides a firm substrate for turf establishment. The access ways created are green and aesthetically pleasing and provide a stable path for heavy fire engines and other emergency vehicles when needed. Rainwater infiltrates into the compacted base and is discharged via the drainage cell layer below, reducing excessive run-off and stormwater management problems which impermeable roads may pose.
VersiCell®
VersiCell® sub-surface drainage modules installed in planter boxes provide a void beneath the planting media to enable expeditious transport of excess water to drainage outlets for prevention of waterlogging. A non-woven geotextile filter fabric placed over the drainage modules allowed a 100mm sand layer to be spread on top followed by the soil media for plants from shrubs to small trees to be planted, and effectively turn the grounds of the condominium into landscaped gardens.

SILVERSEA

Location

46 Marine Parade Road, Singapore

Specifications

To provide turf stabilization along fire engine access
To provide sub-surface drainage in planter boxes
To provide green wall system for installation of green wall

Solution

Turf Stabilisation
TurfPave® XD grass pavers were positioned onto a compacted sand base layer over the compacted substrate of the access way. Infilled with a sandy soil mix, TurfPave® XD whilst providing a stable and firm substrate for turf establishment also creates the mandated access way with ability to bear high compressive loads necessary for passage of fire engines and other emergency vehicles.
The TurfPave access pathway remains green and aesthetically pleasing and is able to withstand constant daily pedestrian traffic. TurfPave does not retain water and thus allows rainwater to infiltrate into the compacted sand base beneath and then slowly into the substrate throughout the length of the green passageway.
An impermeable asphalt road, if installed instead, would repel rather than temporarily retained the rainwater in the substrate and therefore subsequently contribute to excessive run-off and associated stormwater management problems.

 

Landscape Roof / Sub-surface drainage
VersiCell® sub-surface drainage modules were installed in planter boxes to provide a void beneath the planting media to enable expeditious transport of excess water to drainage outlets. A non-woven geotextile filter fabric placed over the drainage modules allowed a 100mm sand layer to be spread on top followed by the soil media. The resultant lush landscaped grounds, planted with plants from shrubs to small trees, are well-drained and have minimal water-logging problems.

 

Green Wall
VersiWall® GM (VGM®) vertically greens the retaining wall facing the lift shaft of a glass-walled elevator positioned to convey residents from the underground car park to surface level. VGM® Modules were pre-planted, 6 to 8 weeks prior to installation, with plants selected for ability to thrive in the narrow space in front of the lift shaft which is subject to strong light exposure at the top of the wall and subdued light at the bottom.

Specifications

To provide system to establish a 1200 sq m green wall along retaining wall

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 retaining wall to facilitate firm and secure anchorage of the VGM® modules to the wall. Attractive flowing living patterns were created by using the various shades of green, red and orange from the plant palette provided by the selected green wall plants. The otherwise featureless high wall is transformed into a majestic eye-pleasing living wall. The green wall extends a green welcome to commuters, athletes and visitors from around the globe arriving for the Summer Youth Olympic Games 2014 in Nanjing, People’s Republic of China the host city of the Games.
