Lift Lobby Designs Using ENiTo Eco-friendly Deco Panels in NRF CREATE
Singapore makes another mark as the global hub for R&D with the completion of National Research Foundation’s Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE), a 'green building' and soon to be home of 1000 researchers and world class research facilities. We can’t be more proud to be involved in this project by supplying ENiTo Deco Panels used on all the lift lobbies.
CREATE, a 'campus in the garden' is a manifestation of the evolving green building techniques in Singapore. CREATE aimed to pioneer the use of environmental sustainability and energy efficient technologies in the tropics which may become mainstream in the coming years. Some of the noticeable features of the building includes the significant reduction of artificial lighting by allowing natural daylight to come in and applying methods to conserve water through the collection, storage, treatment and re-use of rainwater and grey water from showers and lavatories.
An estimated $360 million budget was set aside for the design and development of the CREATE which received the Green Mark Award from the Building & Construction Authority (BCA) for environmentally frienly building construction and design. ENiTo Deco Panels was chosen by the senior project architect from Perkins+Will in San Francisco, USA for its indoor environmental quality, use of sustainable materials and green label certificate from the Singapore Green Label Scheme (SGLS) which contributed in getting the Green Mark credits.
Located at the southern end of NUS University Town, Singapore, construction of the 60,000m2 CREATE began in late 2009 which was awarded to Obayashi Corporation. More than 800 ENiTo Deco Panels with 3 designs are installed in the lift lobby on all 17 levels, including the basements and mezzanine with sizes varying from 190 x 2425mm to 1092 x 3525mm.
ENiTo Deco Panels are made of 100% recycled materials, NO VOC emission, NO formaldehyde and available in various eloquent patterns that adds a great beauty in any interior. Each panel is custom made according to the specifications in technical drawings and can be run vertically from ceiling to floor.
As more buildings owners and architects move towards the green building trends, it is important for ENiTo to stay on the leading edge by creating innovative products that syncs with our brand mission. "We are continuously stretching our boundaries with new and improved environmental building product for the green building industry," said ENiTo Chairwomen, Mrs. Wikkie Chua-Netten. "The award for this project is a milestone for us," she added.
