Changi Business Park, Singapore
Singapore’s Premier Business Park
Project: UE BizHub, Changi Business Park
Features: The 66-hectare park is a mixed use development comprising high tech, data and software, R&D and knowledge intensive enterprises.
Challenge: Close proximity to the airport and large logistics companies resulting in movement and ground vibration from many large vehicles. Also, noise produced from the nearby MRT train station with trains running at five minute intervals in peak hour, affecting those sleeping in the hotel.
Vipac’s Role: To provide services for the 800-seat convention centre, the hotel and office block, including room acoustics design, sound insulation, facade noise insulation, audio-visual design and building acoustics.
Benefit: Environmental noise studies for the acoustic design of building envelopes helped minimise unwanted noise caused by the proximity of the airport, neighbouring logistics operations and heavy use vehicles.
