TrackGard - Event Flooring and Ground Protection

National Day Parade Singapore

Location

The Padang, Singapore

Specifications

To provide temporary ground cover for event areas and pedestrian pathways for National Day Parade spectators, event crew and performers.

Solution

Over 2,580 square metres of TrackGard® (robust portable flooring for temporary access and ground protection) was deployed within the vicinities 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® prevent accidental slipping due to wet floor conditions brought about by the rain and provided a mud-free walkway for spectators, event crew and performers.

Surbana Jurong Campus

Location

Surbana Jurong Campus, Singapore

Specifications

To waterproof the rooftop terraces, establish raised wooden decks on the rooftop terraces and provide drainage beneath the planter boxes.

Solution

Waterproofing the Rooftop Terraces (Image 1 to 3)
About 15,000 sq m of Euraplan® (UV-resistant PVC-based waterproofing membrane) was installed on the rooftop terraces.

Outdoor Raised Deck on Rooftop Terraces (Image 4 to 9)
VersiJack® height and slope adjustable pedestals were used to support the outdoor raised decks on the roof top terraces. This decking installation is unique because in addition to the standard parallel raised decks, a rounded circular raised deck was constructed.

Planter Boxes with Irrigation System (Image 10 to 12)
VersiCell® lightweight, high strength modular drainage cells were installed to provide drainage beneath the planter boxes.

The Royal Condominium, Cambodia

Location

The Royal Condominium, Cambodia

Specifications

To provide sub-surface drainage for the Intensive Green Roof on the rooftop of the condominium.

Solution

Elmich VersiCell® 3050 drainage modules (drain cells) were installed beneath the geotextile filter fabric layer and the planting soil above. The drainage cavity created enables rapid transport of excess water to drainage points on the roof, preventing waterlogging at the planter boxes and roof gardens. Laid directly on the waterproofing membrane, the modules also provide a protection layer that prolongs the serviceable life of the membrane.

Edible Community Garden | Dover Crescent

Location

Edible Community Garden – 28 Dover Crescent, Singapore

Specifications

To construct a sustainable edible garden in under 2 months.

Solution

Designer’s Comments – Breakdown of Structures:

VersiTank® modules were assembled to form garden structures of varying heights and configurations:

“VersiPlanter” (Image 1)

To replicate the idea of a self-watering pot, a 100 mm deep water reservoir was constructed using Euraplan® (waterproofing membrane) at the base. Three layers of VersiDrain® 30 (each 30 mm thick) were then laid on top of the reservoir to support the planting soil above. Geotextile fabric was installed at the base and along the sides to prevent loss of soil during watering. Planting soil was then placed inside to complete the re-purposed system.

“VersiTower” (Image 2)

A two-meter-high tower for the creeper plants was constructed by vertically stacking and interlocking VersiTank® 555 modules with stainless steel wires. The VersiTank® 555 modules at the keeps of the towers was cut at specific areas to allow access for gardeners to the planting soil. The VersiTank® 555 modules at the base of the tower were filled with soil for stability as it acts as a gravitational counterweight for the tower.

“VersiArch” (Image 3)

Smaller and lighter VersiTank® 553 modules were used to construct an arch between the towers. For structural stability and safety, two 25 x 25 mm aluminium square hollow sections were added, spanning through the arch sections.

Raised “VersiPlanter” (Image 4) 

Raised planters of varying heights were built, simply by stacking the MEP® Tray on a VersiTank® 553 and onto the “VersiPlanter” structure.

“Vertical Planter”

By installing the purpose-made aluminium carrier bars on the sides of the planters, vertical planter pots could be added to the garden.

One Farrer Hotel

Location

One Farrer Hotel, Singapore

Specifications

Establish a landscape deck that is resistant to mould and algae in the hotel’s open terraces at level 6.

Solution

VersiJack® height and slope adjustable pedestals were used to support raised pavers on One Farrer Hotel’s newly renovated open terraces at level 6.

Splash Pad
1. A constant 4 mm gap between pavers maintained by Spacer Tabs mounted on the pedestal tops allows water issuing from the fountain spouts to seemingly disappear upon coming into contact with the paver surface, keeping areas beyond the boundaries of the raised paver area completely dry.

2. The pump mechanism and required cabling for the pump are safely and unobstructively hidden in the void space beneath the raised pavers.

3. A layer of porous EPDM rubber flooring was then installed onto the pavers.

Green Lawn (Artificial Turf)
VersiCell® was installed to provide drainage beneath the artificial turf.
