8 Kent Ridge Drive, Singapore

Specifications

To provide the pedestal system for installation of raised concrete slab pavers on the rooftop of the building (VersiJack®)

 

To provide extensive green roof system to enable planting on the rooftop (VersiDrain® 25P)

Solution

VersiJack® pedestals were used to support concrete pavers on the rooftop garden to create a raised paver deck to form walkways around shallow planter boxes.

 

The VersiJack® pedestals allowed easy progressive height adjustments and slope correction. A constant gap between individual pavers to facilitate surface drainage was maintained by the use of Spacer Tabs while the pedestals’ integrated Locking Rings secured paver heights.

 

The raised paver platform allows water to drain quickly away and eliminates unsightly efflorescence forming on the paver surface. It also provides a convenient cavity that allows miscellaneous services to be hidden. Heat transference from the paver surface to the office space beneath the roof garden is also minimized. Efficient surface drainage also keeps the rooftop dry for safe enjoyment of the roof garden.

 

VersiDrain® 25P drainage and water retention trays were laid over the cement and sand screed protecting the waterproofing membrane in the planter boxes on the rooftop. A lightweight inorganic planting media spread on a geotextile filter fabric placed over the trays enabled the establishment of selected drought-tolerant plants.

 

Stored water in the tray reservoir, transferred via capillary action to the plant media, provides irrigation in dry spells. When required, easy supplementary irrigation is delivered by a network of irrigation tubes installed in the planter boxes.

Specifications

To provide root-resistant waterproofing on the rooftop of the building
To provide the Landscape Roof system for intensive green roof installation

Solution

Eurathane 1200 SPE
Waterproofing protection for the roof skin beneath the green roof was provided by Eurathane 1200 SPE, a solvent-free plural component spray-applied polyurethane elastomer waterproofing coating. The fast curing polyurethane coating is UV-resistant and root-resistant with excellent tensile properties; suitable for intensive green roof applications.

 

Elmich Landscape Roof
A total of 1,500 sq m of VersiCell sub-surface drainage modules were connected into continuous mats carpeting the waterproofing membrane at the two rooftop levels of the building. This provided a void beneath the planting media that enables expeditious transport of excess water to drainage outlets at the perimeter of the intensive green roof. 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. The efficient discharge of excess water provided by the VersiCell sub-soil drainage layer prevents the green roof from getting waterlogged.

 

The eye-pleasing Elmich Landscape Roof decks offer additional amenity and informal learning spaces on the rooftop of the Stephen Riady Centre and also environmental benefits that contribute to a more sustainable built environment at the National University of Singapore (NUS) University Town (UTown).

 

The green roofs play a major role in the award of the BCA Green Mark Platinum to the Building which in turn contributed to the BCA Green Mark for Districts Award being awarded to UTown and NUS clinching the ultimate BCA Green Mark Champion Award.
