Description:

Adding more excitement to the IMM mall is a wet and dry playground located on Level 3, popularly known as the Garden Plaza. The roof is covered with PTFE (Teflon) Coated Glass Fiber Roof designed and built by Multimedia Engineering Pte Ltd.

The specification from the client, CapitaLand Retail Project Management Pte Ltd was for a sunshade canopy for shading children's playground area or any outdoor event.

The Teflon roof consists of three parts. The biggest part of the roof, which covers an area of 1,500m2, represents the main canopy. This is to shade outdoor seasonal events, shows, parties, and dinner programmes. 

The second biggest area covering 600m2 is used as an outdoor refreshment area for an 'al fresco dining'. Its canopy overhangs out from along the building line. From this place, the public can watch the performances that take place at the main canopy.

The final area of the roof is used to shade the playground area. A favourite place among the kids, the teflon roof shelter covers 400m2 and provides shelter from wind and rain.
