National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan said at an eco-friendly conference that Singapore is coping well with the recent sand ban and is looking at alternatives sources and building technologies.

One such project is Treetops @ Punggol. The project will have dry partition walls in its interior instead of concrete walls. Dry partition walls are made of ferro-cement material with two panels bolted together to form a wall with a hollow core.

With that and other materials, such as recycled concrete and structural steel used in the construction of flats, can help cut down the dependency on sand and concrete.
