It will be home to the firm’s global headquarters in Singapore.
Government-backed infrastructure firm Surbana Jurong launched its new campus at the Jurong Innovation District in a ground-breaking ceremony for what will be the firm’s future home of its global headquarters in Singapore, an announcement revealed.
Spanning a total of 68,915 sqm, the Surbana Jurong Campus can accommodate up to 4,000 and is set for completion by 2021. It will feature ecosystem of enterprises in advanced manufacturing, urban solutions, and smart logistics.
Surbana Jurong worked with Safdie Architects to establish Safdie Surbana Jurong which designed the campus to make sure that it will embody Singapore’s character as the Garden City through integrating the structure harmoniously with the natural landscape.
“Utilising the Group’s full range of capabilities to develop this project, the Surbana Jurong Campus will be a showcase of how we can support our clients to bring a development project from vision to reality,” Wong Heang Fine, Group Chief Executive Officer of Surbana Jurong, said. “From planning, financing and design, through to delivery and management, we have a fully integrated and complete set of services to successfully deliver a project from concept to completion.”
The firm revealed that it will embrace digital technologies to push for productivity and efficiency. It will employ Building Information Modelling (BIM) and will also extend it to a comprehensive Integrated Digital Delivery, or IDD. IDD fully integrates processes and stakeholders along the development value chain through advanced info-communications technology and smart technologies.
Moreover, SJ will apply its proprietary solutions such as BIM:FM technology to the facilities management process to increase productivity and achieve cost savings for long-term building maintenance and operational cycle. The construction will also utilise the Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) approach with the use of precast materials, a signature competency of SJ utilised in its affordable housing projects.
SJ also noted that the campus will be a living lab with spaces for research and test-bedding of new ideas, including test-bedding future-ready solutions developed by the SJ-NTU Corporate Lab, a joint corporate laboratory set up by SJ, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU) and the National Research Foundation Singapore.
The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) have been supporting and collaborating with SJ for the development of the campus campus.
