Hwa Chong Institution Student Facility Block


Developer: Hwa Chong Institution
Main Con: Nanjing Dadi Construction Pte Ltd
Architect: Surbana International Consultants Pte Ltd
ABC Waters Consultant: Netatech Engineering Pte Ltd
Nature of ABC Waters project: Design & Build
Date Completed: In Progress

About the Project:

The new Student Facility Block of Hwa Chong Institution, like many developments in Singapore, has limited land area. So in order to treat the nutrient-rich runoff from the roof garden, a cascade of vertical bioretention basins is designed on the facade of the building.

Runoff from the roof is channelled through downpipes to the upper basins. Excess water overflows to the lower ones. These bioretention provide both vertical greenery as well as stormwater quality treatment.

A special feature in this project is a bioretention basin that has a glass wall. This glass wall allows students to see the substrate profile and observe the filtration and biological treatment at work.
