Heriot-Watt University Malaysia is a masterpiece landmark on the shoreline of Putrajaya’s lake, with its beauty-in-simplicity ascending arch appearance. This building features the largest green roof in the country, acts as both a natural shading roof and mitigating heat island to the surrounding environment.
The iconic green roof is the first of its kind in Malaysia. There is a 30 degrees curvature on the green roof from the ground to the fourth floor’s roof. This green roof is accessible by pedestrians from the base of the building to the top floor. It also acts as a viewing platform that commands a spectacular view of Putrajaya lakeside and its surroundings.

Erosion control, soil weight, water loading together with tropical torrential downpours are the main challenges that could erode soils arising from surface runoff on the green roof. A control measure among others was implemented in order to mitigate the adverse effects by adopting an intelligent drainage system that comprised drainage cells, being the versiDrain 25p for effective water discharge capacity.

One of the innovative construction methodologies adopted by the project team was the simultaneous construction from both ends of the building instead of the normal sequencing to roof coordinates, with respective coordinates progressively precision monitored in order to attain the desired design curves intent.
The Talk will share the challenges which potentially could have triggered additional costs and delays, has it not been effectively managed and resolved immediately.
