Bukit Canberra Integrated Hub, Singapore

Specifications

  1. Establish Fire Engine Accessway at Community Lawn
  2. Provide Drainage System Beneath Intensive and Extensive Green Roofs
  3. Establish Sustainable Stormwater Management System

Solution

Establish Fire Engine Accessway at Community Lawn (Image 1)
Emergency fire engine access areas were created on the community lawn using TurfPave® XD grass pavers installed beneath the ground. TurfPave® XD’s porous structure allows rainwater to infiltrate the ground, protecting the grass roots against compaction and effectively supporting loads imposed by large fire trucks and human traffic.

Provide Drainage System Beneath Intensive Green Roofs (Image 2 to 4)
VersiCell® lightweight, high strength modular drainage cells were installed beneath the planting soil at the butterfly garden on level 2 and therapeutic gardens on the roof terraces on level 3 to facilitate efficient drainage of excess water, preventing waterlogging. Additionally, drip irrigation systems were added to ensure the health of the vegetation.

Provide Drainage System Beneath Extensive Green Roofs (Image 5 to 12)
VersiCell® lightweight, high strength modular drainage cells were also installed beneath the top planting media on the building’s structure, pick-up/drop-off point shelter, and covered walkways to facilitate efficient drainage of excess water, preventing waterlogging. Additionally, drip irrigation systems were added to ensure the health of the vegetation.

Establish Sustainable Stormwater Management System (Image 13 to 16)
VersiTank® modular detention/retention tanks were assembled to construct ABC Waters design features, such as bioretention basins, earth drains and bioswales, that aid in sustainable stormwater management.

POSB PAssion Run For Kids

Location

The Promontory @ Marina Bay, Singapore

Specifications

To provide temporary ground cover for event areas and pedestrian pathways for participants.

Solution

TrackGard® was deployed within the vicinities of The Promontory @ Marina Bay to create temporary event areas and pedestrian pathways.

The hexagonal design of each TrackGard® tile allows for interlocking supports on all six sides to provide excellent strength and durability for heavy foot traffic. The non-slip surface of TrackGard® prevented accidental slipping due to wet floor conditions brought about by the rain and provided a mud-free walkway for participants.
