The Marina Bay Sands resort area in Singapore will feature three 50-floor hotel towers, each with 1,000 rooms. And it happens to have Hydro's aluminium building systems all over it.
Marina Bay Sands is described as a fully integrated luxury resort. In fact, it appears the six-million-square-foot project will integrate a little of just about everything, not least the waterfront promenade.
When completed at the end of this year, Marina Bay Sands will offer civic space, including a museum and a convention center; outdoor areas, such as jogging paths and gardens; multi-level retail space, two theaters, one casino; and city skyline views.
Technal building solutions
Marina Bay Sands will integrate Technal's aluminium building systems, too, through the Southeast Asia unit of Hydro Building Systems International.
The unit, which is led by general manager Joe Sleiman, will be responsible for substantial window and facade – or, curtain wall – deliveries.
These comprise about 25,000 square meters of GX31 sliding windows (Saphir range) and around 1,000 square meters of MX curtain wall (Geode range).
Hydro's customers in Marina Bay Sands are BP Aluminium Pte Ltd in Singapore and Sincere Aluminium Works Sdn Bhd in Brunei. The latter is in charge of fabrication and installation.
