S P Setia achieves quadruple win at architecture awards

S P Setia clinched four Honour Awards at MLAA13

DESARU: S P Setia Bhd clinched four Honour Awards in the Developer’s Landscape Development Award and Landscape Master Plan Award of the 13th Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards.

The event was held by the Institute of Landscape Architectures Malaysia at The Westin Desaru Coast, Johor yesterday.

The Landscape Development Award recognises site-specific areas or large-scale projects which incorporate a wide range of landscape values and benefits through their architectural planning and design.

The Landscape Master Plan Award honours large-scale landscape development planning undertaken by a developer which is judged via a comprehensive landscape analysis exercise.

Under the Developer Category, S P Setia’s Setia Bayuemas Lake Park and Setia Alamsari Canal Park received the Honour Awards for the Landscape Development Award, while Setia Alam and Setia EcoHill Walk were both recognised under the Landscape Master Plan Award with Honour Awards.

“Our accolades reflect our dedication and passion towards placemaking and creating spaces that inspire and leave a lasting positive impact on the communities we serve. We strive to adopt creative, innovative and sustainable strategies with our landscapes to positively shape the world we live in,” said Datuk Yuslina Mohd Yunus, executive vice-president of S P Setia in a statement.

Located within S P Setia’s Setia Bayuemas township development in Klang, the 10-acre Setia Bayuemas Lake Park is sustainably landscaped through efforts including retaining matured trees which have been attracting 19 native bird species and planting treelets to help reduce greenhouse gases,.

It also creates a nursery habitat for Lubuk fish to feed and grow, introducing the Dragonfly Water Garden with semi-aquatic plants that naturally clean the water, as well as utilising solar power for lighting.

Setia Alamsari Canal Park in Kajang is one of the eight main parks in the township.

The 11.3-acre Canal Park has three pre-existing lakes which were transformed the become the township’s only park with a fountain feature that benefits aquatic life by aerating the waters.

With the intention to create a park for active living, jogging and cycling tracks were added around the lake and landscaped areas.

Exercise equipment and a giant slide for children were also added to encourage outdoor recreation.

Setia Alam, S P Setia’s first flagship township, has 400 acres of green areas with landscaped waterways and naturally existing shrubs that were maintained. Solar powered lamps are used at the parks to reduce the use of electricity.

Residents can enjoy the jogging trails which weave through the township’s parks and resting areas in the gardens are within reach to provide ample outdoor space to relax and recuperate.
