Shower/Toilet BlockPrecast concrete
  • Durable and can withstand outdoor elements
  • Offers design flexibility allowing you to customise it to fit your specific needs.
Green Roof
  • Can act as a natural insulator helping regulate the temperature.
  • Helps with stormwater management by absorbing rainwater, reducing the strain on the sudS
Bike RackStainless Steel
  • Durable and resistant to corrosion

  • Underground Cables and pipes

Site Constrains

The SUDs chosen was the car park’s Permeable Pavement. The porous material (concrete) will have gaps in between so when rain seeps through the gap it is stored in the stone reservoir underneath. Then, the water can slowly infiltrate into the ground or collected for reuse. This way, the water will not pool on the surface.
