The all single-room design, a first in Singapore, offers patients and their care-givers an unequalled level of privacy and comfort. As such, the use of ROOCKWOOL ThermaRock S in the drywall partition application as well as in the HVAC's internal duct lining for optimum level of acoustic comfort was befitting. ROCKWOOL ThermalRock S aids in the absorption of sound waves and can reduce the intensity and propagation of noise. Apart from its excellent acoustic properties, its non-combustible nature allows for it to withstand high temperatures in the event of fire, and slow down the spread of flames thereby providing valuable extra minutes for occupants to escape.

In line with the hospital's green initiative, environmentallyfriendly elements were used in the construction process. These included integrated photovoltaic green technology, innovative air-handling system and optimal use of light to enhance energy savings. ROXUL Bradflex flexible ducts were also used to insulate the HVAC system to achieve thermal efficiency and better noise reduction. In addition, with an outer aluminum laminate, it would prevent the penetration of moisture laden air to inhibit condensation, rot or mildew.

Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital's green initiatives have contributed to them achieving the Green Mark Platinum Award from the Singapore Building and Construction Authority. And ROCKWOOL is pleased to be part of this iconic project by supplying materials that further complement's its green efforts.
