Aurecon is helping to bring one of the world’s largest mass engineered-timber buildings to life – The Nanyang Technological University Academic Building South in Singapore.
The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore is a leader in adopting sustainable materials and innovative construction methods for its campus development. Its latest project, Academic Building South (ABS), is no different and will be built largely from Mass Engineered Timber (MET) to be the new home for Nanyang Business School. At 40,000 square metres, it will be one of the largest wooden buildings in Asia upon completion in 2021.
To bring this tall building’s vision to life, Aurecon was engaged to deliver civil and structural engineering services, including consultancy services for the demolition of the existing Innovation Centre, conceptualisation and detailed design of all structural elements, preparation of tender documents, and construction supervision.
