Singapore Power HQ
Energising SP’s new headquarters
Located along the Pan Island Expressway (PIE), the new headquarters of Singapore Power (SP) houses the various operational units of the SP Group.
In our design, we retained all structural elements of the previously existing factory and used them as part of the new development. The Addition & Alteration (A&A) works were done with lightweight construction methods. In total, DP Engineers (DPE) successfully re-purposed the 8-storey production factory building to training, operation, research & development (R&D) rooms and ancillary office use, which otherwise would have required more than 13,000 tonnes of concrete.
Due to its location and purpose, site context and functionality were major factors influencing our design and engineering schematics of the development.
Sandwiched between an expressway and a local industrial access road, the prominence of its location called for a sensitive response to its site context. A more monolithic expression of building form and scale with fins expressing horizontality facing the PIE is an aesthetic mimicry of the speed and movement of expressway traffic. Juxtaposed with this, is a prominent curved wall that serves as an acoustic barrier for the habitable roof spaces. Simultaneously, colourful sinuous elements symbolise the dynamism of Singapore’s leading energy provider.
The eight-storey development is designed to Green Mark Platinum standards and was completed in early-2017.
