With construction restrictions lifted, the V&A Waterfront’s development team has returned to The Ridge site to install the long-awaited façade. The first cross laminated timber (CLT) and glazing panels arrived and have been installed along Marine Road.
These custom-made panels with openable windows, are one of the key sustainability features of The Ridge building. It will assist in the natural ventilation of the office floors. CLT is a green and sustainable material since it is made out of renewable wood, sequesters carbon, and does not require the burning of fossil fuels during production.
The next milestone at The Ridge is making the building a living breathing one. It will consist of a mixed mode climate control to cover TABS, displacement ventilation and natural ventilation. Thereafter a world class interior to cover plantscaping, flexible working areas, and staff wellness focus to name a few.
