Leedon Residence is a carefully designed residential development; we ensure that each unit enjoys the ambience of a retreat-style environment. It embodies the principles of sustainable design with use of eco-friendly features. Some of these features are:
1. Green Space The estate is set amid lush landscaping connected with flowing waterscapes and greenery to provide tranquil area for retreat and relaxation. More than 70% of the estate is devoted to landscaping and communal facilities.
2. Green Living At Forest Walk, carefully selected trees are planted to complement existing conserved trees. A meandering footpath, outdoor fitness areas and pavilions are integrated seamlessly within the lush greenery and bio-ponds.
3. Environmental Sunshades Building layouts have been maximized with mostly North-South facing to avoid direct heat gain from the sun. The building core has been ‘opened’ up to allow light and wind flow between the building and into the interfacing residential units and stair core. Balcony and planters provide shade to unit interior as well as a flexible outdoor living space.
4. Energy Efficient Features Low-E glass is used for façade glazing to reduce heat transmission from exterior to interior. ‘Cool’ paint used at east and west facing external walls provides thermal insulation effect by reflecting infrared ray and heat.
5. Water Management System for Irrigation A central rainwater-harvesting tank collects rain water for partial landscape irrigation hence reduces reliance on public utility water. In addition, a rain sensor detects precipitation and turns off the automatic irrigation so as to reduce water waste.
6. Water Usage Monitoring Private meters are provided to monitor major water usage including irrigation, swimming pool and water features.
7. Water Efficient Fittings Toilets in the common area and in the residential units are installed with dual flushing cistern to reduce consumption of water usage.
8. User Friendly Dual Pneumatic Chute Double refuse chutes are provided in each service lobby for the separation of the recyclable and non-recyclable waste. The waste is cleared at regular intervals by an automatic pneumatic mechanism that channels the waste via underground pipes to the bin centre. A container bin then stores the recyclable and non-recyclable waste separately for collection.
9. Motion Detector at Private Lift Lobbies and Staircases Motion detectors are provided at private lift lobbies and exit staircases to save electricity for lighting when space is not in use.
10. Energy Efficient Fittings Provision of four (4) ticks energy efficient air-conditioners under Singapore Energy Label to the residential units
11. Energy Efficient Lights Energy efficient T5 fluorescent tubes and Light-Emitting Diode (LED) light fittings are used at basement car park and common areas at first storey.
12. Energy Efficient Lift System Gearless traction machine and automatic turn-off car light and fan reduce capacity of motor and equipment, resulting in substantial saving of energy.
13. Control of Ventilation Systems in Basement Car Park Carbon monoxide sensors are provided to regulate the demand for mechanical ventilation to enhance energy efficiency.
14. Gas Water Heater Provision of gas water heater to bathrooms and kitchen to minimize dependency on electricity usage.
15. Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Paint Use of low VOC paint to all internal wall areas to reduce harmful compound vaporizing into air.
16. Environmental Friendly Products Products such as drainage cell, composite timber deck, waterproofing and painting are certified under Singapore Green Labeling Scheme (SGLS) or have components made out of recycled materials.
