Construction begins on SG$350 million Comtech building redevelopment; Singapore
Construction has begun on the SG$350 million redevelopment of the Comtech commercial building in Singapore. Mott MacDonald is acting as building services consultant on behalf of Mapletree Business City Pte Ltd on the project.
The redevelopment of the Comtech building will include the construction of a new 30-storey tower with three stepped podium blocks, providing approximately 125,000 sq m of gross floor area. As the second and final phase of the Mapletree Business City (MBC) integrated business hub it will build on the previous success of MBC, which includes a business park and retail space, office and meeting facilities, restaurants and cafes and a gymnasium with heated pool.
The MBC development has revitalised the Alexandra Precinct of Singapore. Located at the fringe of the central business district, it is designed to support, enhance and exceed the needs of modern businesses.
CheeChuan Tan, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Once the redevelopment of the Comtech building is complete, the complex will be a Grade A business park space with high floor plate efficiency. The project also recently obtained Green Mark Platinum certification, Singapore’s highest sustainability award. This was achieved thanks to a predicted 30% energy saving through the use of efficient chiller plants and lighting.”
Construction of the project is due to be completed in the first half of 2016.
