Innovative and Eco-efficient Slope Protection Run-Off Pond in Vertis North
A safe and environmentally friendly solution to mitigate erosion and flooding in Vertis North Garden, Quezon City.
MacMat® R – Steel was used as revetment protection to increases the soil’s resistance in Vertis Garden run-off section pond.
Vertis North was located in the fastest-growing central business district in Quezon City, Philippines. Ayala Land, one of the leading and trusted real estate developers in the Philippines, built Vertis North to enrich lives by combining work, innovation, and a sustainable lifestyle. Bringing business, leisure, privacy, security, accessibility, and everything together in one location.
A multi-purpose stormwater management technology was developed in Vertis North Garden that prevents flooding and erosion. It acts as a catchment pond and an open park that promotes relaxation and improves nearby residents’ well-being for its green space.
Maccaferri’s MacMat® R, a steel-reinforced geomat, was used as revetment protection, which increases the soil’s resistance to erosion by providing an environment that enhances vegetation growth. MacMat® R is made from a three-dimensional matrix of UV stabilized non-degradable synthetic fibers, heat bonded where they cross, extruded onto a double twisted steel woven mesh.
The vegetation through the mat leads to an aesthetically green facing complimenting the beauty of the garden. A safe, innovative, and eco-efficient environment solution for a balance of urban and sustainable living.
The contractor, Makati Development Corporation, commenced work in February 2020 and completed the project in March 2020.
