Oasia Hotel Downtown in Singapore has been named the Best Tall Building Worldwide, standing tall next to past title winners such as Sydney’s One Central Park and Beijing’s CCTV Headquarters. KTP, a member of the Surbana Jurong Group was the civil & structural consultant for this project.

Awarded by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), the win comes after the building was selected as Best Tall Building Asia & Australasia at the Tall and Urban Innovation Conference held on 31 May in Chicago. CTBUH is a non-profit international body that recognises achievements in the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and sustainability at the highest and broadest levels.

The 193.3m, 27-storey-high building was designed to be supported on a highly innovative and unique structural transfer system which enabled an intensified use of stacked spaces of offices, hotel and club rooms at different vertical strata. It also incorporates “skyspaces” uniquely designed with additional open-sided “ground” levels throughout.

In this geometrically challenging design, the team performed sophisticated and rigorous engineering analysis, ensuring the construction buildability and overall long-term behaviour were accounted for.

The Oasia Hotel Downtown Singapore won not only because it incorporated 60 stories of green walls along the exterior, but because of its significant commitment to communal space. The tower has also allocated over 40 per cent of its volume to open air communal terraces in the sky.

The realisation of this highly complex structural form is a testament to our unwavering commitment from our engineers who persistently pushed boundaries of innovation while firmly guided by first principles of structural engineering.

Robert Bird Group (RBG), a member of the Surbana Jurong Group, has been engaged as engineering designer for the design component of the Design and Construct contract of the Regional Bridge and Lobethal Freight Route Upgrade in Adelaide, South Australia.

This is the first project RBG will undertake for the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure in the transport space, and represents the first major transport design project undertaken by the practice as Lead Designer.

The contract involves the replacement of six regional bridges, crash barrier upgrades on seven bridges on the Sturt Highway, and upgrading the Lobethal Freight Route. RBG’s tender design was comprehensive and found that the reference designs included in the tender documents did not achieve the government’s objectives. As part of the tender process, RBG provided advice to the contractor that allowed the development of a roadmap to reduce the contractual sum to fit the government’s budget.

RBG’s scope of work includes structural engineering, highway and road design, geotechnical engineering and road safety auditing and certification with the latter specialist services being subcontracted.

The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2019, with the possibility of additional works being added.

The construction of the first phase of Tuas Terminal development has reached an important milestone with the official launch of the first caisson on 29 April. Surbana Jurong is proud to be the consultant for the planning and engineering design as well as the supervision of the construction, which includes project management, contract administration and site supervision for this mega project.

The event was graced by Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport Mr Khaw Boon Wan who initiated the launch of the first caisson. Representing Surbana Jurong at the event was Group CEO Mr Wong Heang Fine and Deputy CEO, Infrastructure, Mr Loh Yan Hui.

The Tuas Terminal is part of Singapore’s efforts to consolidate its port activities at Tuas to continue the success and support the demand for container port handling facilities. As key pillar in Singapore’s Next Generation Container Port, the Tuas Terminal is an engineering feat with many innovative features. For instance, the design includes the re-use of dredged and excavated materials as reclamation fill materials which results in significant material cost savings of some $1 billion. The use of innovative caisson design for thewharf structures also helps to improve productivity and quality as the caissons are of standard sizes and pre-fabricated in a controlled environment on site.

The Tuas Terminal will be developed in four phases over a span of some 30 years, with the construction of Phase 1 scheduled for completion in the 2020s. When fully operational, the Tuas Port will be the first in Singapore designed to accommodate ultra large container vessels (ULCV) beyond the current size of ULCV and is able to handle up to 65 million twenty-foot equivalent units per annum.
