World’s Largest Green Wall – Institute of Technical Education Singapore

Our Elmich colleagues in Singapore have just completed the largest green wall installation in the world.

The ITE green wall project, standing at 35m tall and totaling 5,300 m2, is a showcase project of how the Elmich system can be engineered.

The Elmich green wall modules have transformed the walls, both internal and external, into facades of green vegetation, using UV-stabilised plastic green wall modules and stainless steel support brackets and pilasters. The Elmich system enabled an easy installation and will provide ongoing flexibility for the maintenance period.

The green wall is topped off with 2400m2 of extensive green roof using the Elmich system.

VersiDrain 25P® drainage and water retention trays were placed directly over the waterproofing and overlaid with a geotextile and a lightweight engineered growing media. Pearl Grass was selected for its heat tolerance and low maintenance and an automated pop-up irrigation system was installed to ensure abundant growth, maximising the benefits of this green roof.

The project is in-line with the ITE’s eco-initiative to create an environment conducive to learning.
