Located at Woodlands Close, Mega @ Woodlands is an eight-storey multiple-user clean, light and general industrial factory development with a total of 512 factory units, commercial spaces (clinic and minimart), two canteens, 120 heavy vehicle parking lots and other ancillary facilities.
Mega @ Woodlands is Wee Hur’s third industrial development. As such, they have gathered experiences and feedback from end users for their past two developments. Their feedback played an important role in the formation of the design brief.
The floor-to-floor height is high, at 5.95 metres for levels one to seven. A wide ramp is provided for access to the ramp-up units. There is a 40-footer access at the first level. The loading and unloading bay can also cater for a 40-footer at the first storey. Wide driveways were incorporated and the number of car parks and lorry parks were maximised where possible. Twenty-footer access is also provided for levels one to six.
In order to cater to different needs of end users, different unit layouts were designed.
Portrait orientated units have more depth. For most units, an additional back door to the driveway was included to provide more flexibility. On the other hand, landscape orientated units have wider frontage. In some units, two roller shutters were incorporated to facilitate the movement of goods.
SUSTAINABILITY AND WELL-BEING
Environmental sustainability and end users’ well-being were taken into consideration in the design. This development has achieved Green Mark Gold Certification. Energy- and water-efficient features—such as carbon monoxide sensors for car park ventilation and sanitary fittings with a good water-efficient rating—were adopted. Good thermal performance of the building envelope has also been achieved.
There are three sky gardens in the development. The biggest sky garden is at the eighth level, which has a jogging trail, outdoor fitness stations, barbeque pits, water feature, greenery and Sky Lounge. The lounge is equipped with a gym, meetings rooms and conference room for the facilitation of meetings. A clinic and a minimart also provide convenience to the end users.
