Singapore Sports Hub

Singapore Sports Hub


Ready, steady, go!

Set to become the pre-eminent sport and leisure venue in Southern Asia, the Singapore Sports Hub will offer world-class facilities for sport, events, concerts, exhibitions and international trade shows.
BYME Singapore is undertaking the design and completion of all buildings services for the entire complex. The project was entirely developed with BIM technology. 
The Hub, which is due to be completed in 2014, is located on a prime 35-ha seafront site in the centre of Singapore, with close proximity to all major transport links. Stimulating the development of sport activities locally, the centre will also enhance Singapore’s appeal and capabilities on a global level. The new 55,000-seat National Stadium, which features a retractable roof measuring 300 m in diameter, is a crucial component of the Sports Hub. 
Other Hub facilities will include: a 6,000-seat indoor aquatic centre and a water sport centre for the general public; a 3,000-seat multifunction arena that will be fully scalable; an exhibition centre; a sports museum; office space for sporting associations; 41,000 m² of commercial space and food and beverage outlets. The development will also include a kilometre-long Sports Promenade with a skating park and tennis courts. With several interconnected buildings to be built within a small area, the complex presents significant technological challenges.
Technical expertise

To ensure spectator comfort, the stadium’s cooling system will provide relief from Singapore’s stifling heat. A unique and innovative air-conditioning system has been developed for the bleachers that will circulate cool air under spectator seating.  The cooling capacity-related capital and operational expenditure have been significantly reduced by the use of latent thermal storage, Turbocor chillers and a reverse district cooling system that features a two-kilometre long HDPE condensing water loop.
