Reflections at Keppel Bay, Singapore
Project: Keppel Bay Towers
Features: On 840,000m2 of land with 750 metres of shoreline, 1129 units and six towers ranging from 24-41 storeys.
Challenge: The buildings’ curved shape and sky bridges made structural loads and occupancy comfort difficult to determine.
Vipac’s Role: To provide cladding pressure, structural wind loads and pedestrian level wind studies for the six Keppel towers to ensure the building achieved comfort at pedestrian level.
Benefit: Helped designers control costs through efficient use of materials, creating the byproduct of more saleable floor area. Also, through wind tunnel studies, determined all the structural load information, ensuring comfort on the sky bridge and identifying low wind areas at ground level.
