Vertical greening modules from Elmich were used to create the greenwalls at the clubhouse of a residential complex in Singapore. The clubhouse required greenwalls to the facade, the convex wall of the second level and a freestanding wall at the main entrance.
Elmich Vertical Greening Modules (VGM), each containing a geotextile bag filled with soil-less and inorganic greenwall growing media, were pre-planted in a nursery environment, allowing the plants to be firmly established and also vertically orientated before installation.
VGM modules were anchored onto stainless steel pilasters bolted to the concrete wall to a height of 15m. The VGM modules covered 140m² of the clubhouse facade.
At the fifth level of the residents’ carpark, the VGM modules were bolted directly onto a bespoke metal framework, which enabled pairs of adjacent vertical rows of VGM modules to swing inwards like windows. This allowed easy maintenance access to the VGM modules mounted 15m from the ground level.
A 56m² living wall anchored onto a freestanding metal framework at the entrance greets residents and visitors.
The Elmich VGM greenwalls blend seamlessly with the landscaped gardens to provide a visually appealing green environment and also help in the environmental objectives of the project.
