1 Hyundai E&C wins order to redevelop Shaw Tower in Singapore.
Hyundai E&C has been awarded an order valued at 202 million dollars, or approximately 240 billion won, to redevelop Shaw Tower in Singapore.
The redevelopment project is designed to transform Shaw Tower whose construction was completed in 1975 into a 32-storey high-end office building and a six-storey community facility. Construction will last for 38 months.
Hyundai E&C will seek to build convenient facilities, community facilities and an outdoor amphitheater in harmony with business space. To satisfy the Singapore’s vision toward the “car-free” city, connectivity with passenger paths, the neighboring government offices and the nearby MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) station will be maximized.
In redeveloping Shaw Tower, Hyundai E&C will focus on use of eco-friendly energy and reduction in energy consumption with the aim to pursue the WELL Certification of the International WELL Building Institute and the BCA Green Mark Scheme of the Singapore’s Building & Construction Authority. The location of Shaw Tower is well known for connecting Marina District, the central area of the city state, and Bugis Street lined with shops targeting younger customers.
Meanwhile, since Hyundai E&C entered the Singaporean market by conducting the Pulau Tekong reclamation project in 1981, we have obtained a total of 91 projects worth 15.2 billion dollars including the Pasir Panjang Terminal project and the Marina South complex development project. Currently, Hyundai E&C is working on 11 civil engineering and building projects valued at 2.1 billion dollars.
