Design and construction of a six-storey, ramp-up, multiple-user warehouse in Singapore

A land shortage in Singapore means that multilevel warehouse facilities are the norm. This paper describes how the building was designed and constructed, addressing the challenges of a complex site with existing underground live utilities and surrounding buildings. These challenges also relate to the programme sequence and construction methodology, with the key objective of zero disruption to the live water mains running across the site. The client’s operational requirements, particularly the levelness and flatness of the floors, brought further challenges.
