Five minutes walk away from Sembawang MRT station lies Bukit Canberra, a 12-hectare Integrated Sport and Community Hub with a regenerative design. Opening in phases, Bukit Canberra currently houses an indoor sports hall, a polyclinic, an indoor and outdoor gym, swimming pools, childcare and senior centres, an 800-seat hawker centre, and numerous small to large green spaces.
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.
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.
Elmich showcased its extensive range of “Create Spongier Cities” Systems and cutting-edge Waterproofing Solutions at Archidex 2023 – South East Asia’s most successful annual industry trade event for the architecture, interior design and building industry in the region. The exhibition was held at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Malaysia from 26th to 29th July 2023.
Elmich has been a pioneer in promoting and leading sustainability efforts in Singapore, Australia, South East Asia and other regions worldwide. Our dedicated technical consultants have been working closely with developers, architects and builders from around the globe to combat climate change through a multitude of innovative green initiatives and projects.
