9781935935568: Green: House Green: Engineering: Environmental Design at Gardens by the Bay Singapore

The book explores the sustainable design principles and innovative engineering behind the development of two of the world's largest conditioned public conservatories or biomes. Nestled within waterfront gardens, the biomes are the centrepiece of a development that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city: gardens that are on track to become a national and international exemplar of sustainable practice.

Through a combination of photographs, graphics and narratives, the book explores the challenges of building two huge enclosures to recreate, in Singapore's naturally sunny, hot and humid environment, the ideal growing conditions for plants from cool-dry Mediterranean regions and the cool-moist conditions of tropical mountain regions. While the thrust of the narrative will consider the environmental design and engineering approach of Atelier Ten, three other voices reflect upon the landscape, architectural and structural engineering issues that confronted the core members of the integrated design team.

As environmental engineers Atelier Ten developed highly innovative passive and active environmental strategies for controlling conditions within the conservatories, while minimising energy demand to exemplar levels. Outside the Biomes the unique Supertree structures house components of the systems that provide cool and dry air to the biomes and also incorporate photovoltaic panels to generate power. The systems run mainly on tree-thinnings - waste material generated by Singapore's National Parks maintenance programme - which are being diverted from landfill to be used as a source of biomass to generate energy and heat.

The landscaping incorporates extensive natural water treatment devices to control, attenuate and cleanse the enormous flows of water from the biome roof areas and the hard landscaping areas during tropical storms. These have been seamlessly integrated into the hard and soft landscaping which comes to life during the frequent deluges that are characteristic of the tropical climate.

In addition, Atelier Ten have developed sustainable management matrices to establish agreed principles of design and construction to exceed benchmarks establish by LEED™, Singapore's BCA Green Mark scheme and One Planet Living approaches.

About the Author:

A founding director of Atelier Ten, Patrick is a Chartered Building Services Engineer with more than thirty years of experience in the design of high-performance buildings and their systems. With extensive experience in the integration of environmental and building systems with architecture, Patrick has particular expertise in thermal mass energy storage technologies and high efficiency radiant conditioning systems.

Patrick taught the core environmental design course on the M.Arch program at Yale University School of Architecture from 2000 - 2009 and led Advanced Design Studios in 2010 and 2011. He was on the Design Review Committee of CABE from 1999 to 2003, a Governor of the Building Centre Trust in London between 1996 and 2011 and on the Employer Panel of the Construction Industry Council. He also lectures widely on issues relating to the creation of a more sustainable Built Environment.

Atelier Ten are Founding Members of the UK Green Building Council and Patrick was a member of the Executive Board since the formation of the organisation in 2006 until 2010. He now serves on the Board of Trustees. Patrick's success in integrating innovative technologies with noteworthy architecture has been acknowledged by the Royal Institute of British Architects, who made him an Honorary Fellow in 2001.

Patrick was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2004. In 2008 Patrick delivered the 6th Happold Medal Lecture and received the Happold Medal from the Construction Industry Council and the Happold Foundation. He is currently the Eero Saarinen Visiting Professor at Yale School of Architecture. In 2010 Patrick was named a Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts.

As a Senior Associate Director, Meredith leads the UK Environmental Design Practice. Alongside delivering building design, Meredith delivers bespoke services that include advanced computational analysis covering daylighting, thermal and energy & carbon modelling and financial modelling including payback analysis & net present value analysis. Within this role he has also developed R&D studies including analysis of differing building typologies to assess their environmental impact. An example would include working with a large European Insurer to develop analytical and cost models for low-carbon renovation and retrofit across their European Property portfolio.

Meredith regularly gives public and educational talks throughout the world and has contributed to numerous publications. He has been a Visiting Lecturer in the MSc in Intelligent Buildings program at Reading University since 2009. Meredith is a member of the Energy Institute and is also a Chartered Engineer and a Chartered Environmentalist.
