Marina One

Location

Marina One, Singapore

Specifications

To create a lightweight and efficient drainage layer for landscaped areas.

To create a raised paving system in the M&E facility.

To provide waterproofing in several areas.

Solution

2,700 sqm of VersiCell® sub-surface drainage cells were installed as the drainage layer for landscaped areas. With its narrow profile, VersiCell® allows for greater soil depth to accommodate a larger variety of plants than drainage media like gravel.

5500 units of VersiPave® lightweight paver supports were used to create a raised paving system. Independent chocks on pedestals enable minor height adjustments at each paver corner to ensure a levelled surface for pavers with varying thickness.

Fleximent® 201, Bitulen® 180, Eurathane® 2000 and Synthaprufe waterproofing membranes were also used in several areas of the development.

Paya Lebar Stormwater

Paya Lebar Quarter

Location

Paya Lebar, Singapore

Specifications

To create an on-site non-structural stormwater detention tank system to slow down runoff, improve stormwater quality, reduce time and cost impact.

Solution

More than 7,000 units of Elmich’s VersiTank®  enveloped with geotextile were installed underneath a series of rain gardens to prevent solid particles from penetrating and clogging the stormwater filtration and management system. The filtered stormwater is temporarily stored in the approximately 980 mtanks to reduce flooding from peak flow of runoff during heavy rain occurences before being discharged into the Geylang River.

Community Garden Festival 2019

Location

Jurong Lake Gardens, Singapore

Specifications

To create several free-standing green wall columns for garden display.

Solution

Multiple free standing green wall columns were created for the Community Garden Festival 2019, held at Jurong Lake Gardens in the Singapore heartlands.

To create each column, VersiTank® modules were assembled and stacked to create stable, free-standing columns of differing heights which are portable for positioning on-site. Each standing column is wrapped with black acrylic felt to give it a solid black interface. VersiWall® GP  mounting panels were then mounted on all 4 sides of the column, and VersiWall® GP  2060 trays were attached subsequently. A selection of plants reflecting modern gardening trends in Singapore were planted in the VersiWall® GP  2060 trays.

ToriYard, Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park

Location

 Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, 1380 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, 569930

Specifications

Create green walls for restaurant in a park.

Solution

VersiWall® GP 500 (VGP 500) Green Wall trays were used to establish a green wall stretching across the sides of a Japanese restaurant in a public park.

140 VGP 500 Green Wall trays were mounted on wire mesh panels on the side of the restaurant, and subsequently planted with plants. The modularity of the VGP 500 allows for maintenance and design changes to be carried out with ease. A secure hook system ensures that the trays and plants stay firmly secure even during strong winds or accidental contact.

An integrated water reservoir at the base of each tray allows for increased efficiency of water usage, increasing the sustainability of plant growth and reducing the need for constant watering and maintenance of plants.

The Fluid Net Pavilion, ArchXpo 2019

Location

Marina Bay Sands Halls A, B & C, Singapore

Specifications

Raise the base of the floor slab for building works using reconstituted timber.

Solution

VersiJack® (50 – 74 mm) height adjustable pedestals were used to support the weight of the entire pavilion structure.

VersiFrame® was used to create an aluminium substructure for the pavilion as a better alternative to conventional timber battens/joists. In line with Onewood’s versatility as a structural building material, Elmich recommended a joist system that could match up to its stability and strength.

Radisson Collection Hotel, Tsinandali Estate Georgia

Location

Tsinandali Village, Tsinandali 2217, Georgia

Specifications

To provide a high quality green wall system for an exterior green façade that wraps around the entirety of a five-star hotel.

Solution

VersiWall® GP (VGP) 2060 trays were mounted on wire mesh secured to the external walls of the hotel. More than 30,000 trays were used to establish the green façade, covering over 1900 square metres of available wall space. VGP 2060 is designed with multiple security features to prevent its accidental dislodgement during high winds. A six-point anchoring system, combined with anti-lift tabs keeps the trays firmly in place even with wind speeds of up to 108km/h.

Each VGP Tray has a water reservoir with a cover designed to allow re-use of stored water via capillary action to sustain plant growth during dry months. During wetter months, sufficient drainage allows excess water to flow into underlying trays, ensuring that all plants get the water they need for healthy growth.

Menara Etiqa, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Location

Bangsar Utama, 59000 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Specifications

To provide a green wall system to install a green wall that wraps around the parking podium of an office building.

Solution

VersiWall® GP (VGP) 2060 Trays were mounted on aluminium panels on the external façade of the Menara Etiqa building to create a vertical green wall.  To create a seamless living wall around the edges of the building, proprietary VGP Mounting Panels were installed at an angle on the corners of the building for a visually enveloping aesthetic. A total of 1200 VGP Trays were used to establish the 1000 m2 green wall.

Anti-lift arms and multi-point mounting features of each VGP Tray significantly reduces the risk of dislodgment, even during wind speeds of up to 108 km/h. Irrigation works were carried out to ensure both water and fertiliser flows smoothly through each pipe which leads into each individual tray. These irrigation pipes were sectioned into zones for efficiency and maintenance. Each VGP Tray has a water reservoir with a cover designed to allow re-use of stored water via capillary action to sustain plant growth.

These features play a crucial part in the eco-friendliness and sustainability of the Menara Etiqa building.

Location

1 Ayer Rajah Ave, Singapore 138676

Specifications

To provide a green wall system to establish vibrant green walls on the exterior of the campus buildings.

Solution

VersiWall® GP (VGP) proprietary mounting panels were mounted onto the 12 metres high walls, totalling an area of 250 sq m. 7,500 VGP 2060 trays were installed onto the panels in a pre-determined design, giving it a lush green aesthetic. Irrigation pipes were integrated with the green wall system in an inconspicuous manner.

Anti-lift arms and multi-point mounting features of each VGP 2060 tray significantly reduces the risk of dislodgment, even during wind speeds of up to 108 km/h. Asides from creating a green and safe passageway, occupants from the Asia Campus can reap the benefits of such biophilic elements within their environment.
