Strengths•Roundabouts were built to save cost and save space.•Roundabouts were built there because it were nearest to AdmissionCentre and Boardwalk.•R oundabout area serve as main entrance.•Plant taller plants to cover the imperfect.
Weaknesses•No corridor between guard house to campus•Skylight of corridor is transparent.•The narrow vehicle path will lead to traffic congestion duringthe peak hour.•The smaller roundabout with fountain is plain.
Opportunities• Build corridor between campus to guard house• Open another drop off and pick up session near bythe academic block• Extend the skylight of corridor and apply 70 % sunblock on the skylight
Threats•The amount of cars increase gradually year by year -- busy& heavy traffic congestion.•The wind will carry the rain into the skylight corridor --shelter provided is useless during the heavy rain.•Student who cannot find a parking lot will just simply parktheir car at clamping zone, thus it blocked part of the roadand causes traffic jam
