BRINGING THE WORLD’S GREAT RESORTS TO LIFE
February 2011 – Singapore initiated the construction of the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort to enhance its status as one of the world’s greatest travel destinations and to promote tourism. The Marina Bay Sands is a casino-based vacation resort, developed by one of the world’s gaming companies, Las Vegas Sands.
The resort, inspired by card decks, was designed by Moshe Safdie. The Marina Bay Sands project has been named one of the world’s most challenging construction projects and is certainly the most expensive stand-alone integrated resort property ever built. The three hotel towers are topped by an extraordinary one-hectare sky park on the roof, named ‘Sands SkyPark’. It offers 360-degree views of the city and the sea and outdoor amenities for the hotel such as jogging paths, spas, and gardens and it is home to the world’s longest elevated swimming pool.
Our Group played a key role in getting this world-class entertainment destination off the ground. Trans Equatorial Engineering (TEE) from Singapore was awarded the contract to build electrical facilities in the Marina Bay Sands resort. TEE asked us to supply them with both cables and expertise because other cable suppliers in Singapore are often small, family-run businesses that could not meet the requirements of a project of this size. Services include on-time delivery and assistance in determining cable requirements and quantities in line with the project schedule.
