Ways to Improve the Production at the Farm
In an effort to improve the quality of its produce, the dripping irrigation system was implemented at the farm in 2004. The innovative approach helped the farm to yield better quality products and substantially reduces the percentage of reject rate. The dripping system irrigation is an underground system which uses pump and valves to transport the water. The water, which came from the 30.48 m boring water, is distributed to crops through a network of pipes that is manually controlled by the workers every morning. The new system managed to optimise the farm's daily water consumption since it only requires minimal amount of water.

Incorporating I4.0 Elements in Manufacturing Process
The K-One Mobile Application project was a result from K-One’s participation in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) PLUGFEST programme which was organised by the Electrical & Electronics Productivity Nexus (EEPN). K-One was among the selected 60 companies in the E&E sector to be included in this programme which aims to support, coach, prepare and enable them to carry out their own IIoT projects within their companies. The IIoT PLUGFEST programme was also joined by some of the big industry players, who have successfully implemented I4.0 elements in their organisations, to help facilitate the knowledge transfer among the participants; providing K-One with a valuable opportunity to gain more insights about IoT and how to integrate the elements in its work process.

Eco-Tourism Catered to the Millennial Crowd
In order to draw millennial travellers and visitors, a beautifully designed place that is “Insta-worthy” is a prerequisite and the team at GLAMZ pays careful attention to that detail, using their previous experience as event planners to ensure the place is purposefully set up to look stunning in photos. Choosing domes and tents in white gives off a minimalist look, accentuated by quirky furnishings, props and colours - all of which imbue the place with a young, urban vibe. One can expect to find colourful hammocks, bean bags, inflatables and wicker chairs as part of their decor, making each corner of GLAMZ a perfect photo backdrop.
Driving Eco-Tourism with Luxury Camping
“A lot of the younger generation don’t really want to book hotels anymore because hotel rooms can be expensive. This is a generation who is adventurous; they go after things that are new and experiential. Like, sleeping under the stars in nature or enjoying a campfire. And this is what we’re all about at GLAMZ - a modern day camping experience.” Darren Lee, Chief Operations Officer, GLAMZ
A Green Haven For All
Surrounded by abundant beauty of nature, the award-winning eco-resort was built to work with nature and not against it. According to Chan, not a single tree was cut to accommodate the development. Likewise, its surrounding lake and landscape have been left undisturbed. Swimming and fishing in the lake—except on rare occasions and under strictly controlled conditions—are prohibited by the management of The Haven. This is to allow the ecosystem of the lake to thrive naturally. With plenty of fish swimming in its waters, The Haven’s lake has attracted otters to choose the lake as their habitat.
