15th to 17th November 2023 marked the ninth installation of ArchXpo, an annual exhibition of architecture and the built environment. This year, the excitement was heightened with the unveiling of Elmich’s groundbreaking innovation, the Smart BlueGreen Roof™ , also known as the Modular Stormwater Detention System. The Smart BlueGreen Roof™ addresses the impacts of climate change with improved at-source stormwater management practices through automatic attenuation of stored rainwater.
Elmich invites you to Architecture & Building Services (ABS) 2023
Come visit Elmich at Booth M20 from 15-17 November 2023, at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.
In recent years, a truly innovative and groundbreaking concept has taken the spotlight in Malaysia – the raised floor system.
This inventive approach involves the installation of raised tiles, pavers, or stones atop pedestals, crafting a functional space beneath the floor.
Understanding Stormwater Detention Tanks
In the world of urban planning, architecture, civil engineering, and construction, one indispensable tool for managing stormwater runoff stands out—the stormwater detention tank. These ingenious reservoirs are purposefully designed to act as temporary storage systems. As precipitation occurs, these tanks collect and store the surplus water.
As part of our collaborative efforts towards the creation of spongier cities, Elmich hosted Steven Peck and Rohan Lilauwala from Green Roofs for Healthy Cities together with representatives from the Centre for Urban Greenery & Ecology (CUGE) NParks at one of our supported massive green wall projects at Grab Headquarters.
As part of our continuous efforts to educate and inspire the next generation to create spongier and climate-resilient cities, Elmich collaborated with lecturers and students from Singapore Polytechnic to work on an automated stormwater discharge system for our latest innovation – VersiDrain® BlueGreen™ Roof Tray.
The annual National Day Parade is scheduled to take place on 9 August at the iconic Padang, and expects to draw a live audience of 27,000 people.
