Obayashi Singapore Private Limited is delighted to mark a historical occasion on 11 May 2016 as DUO Singapore tops out and begins the transformation of the Ophir-Rochor district.
For this joyous occasion, our Director/Senior Managing Executive Officer Obayashi Corporation Mr Makoto Kishida graced the occasion together with M+S Chairman Mr Tan Sri Azman Yahya, M+S Board Member Mr Wen Khai Meng and Managing Director, OSPL Mr Lee Aik Seng. In the Ceremony, the VVIPs placed the plates on the PC panel with the PC panel being lifted and placed atop of the building. The construction has been a complex and challenging one, because of the cantilever design of both towers and given the close proximity to a hospital and MRT . The good progress of DUO was the result of the hard work of Obayashi and its subcontractors who had taken innovative steps in the construction process. This has reduced the noise and dust emissions on site, minimizing the disturbances to patients and residents while speeding up construction time.
At the forefront of mixed-use facilities, DUO is the largest integrated development in Bugis and leads URA’s vision for Ophir-Rochor. DUO’s cutting edge spaces will add to the eclectic and vibrant surrounds of Kampong Glam and Singapore’s contemporary skyline as the tallest building in the vicinity. Obayashi is proud to be the main contractor for the development.
