Pinnacle@Duxton holds two world records

The Pinnacle@Duxton residential project holds two world records for the longest sky-garden and the heaviest skybridge.

The popular residential project, which includes a roof-top garden, will have a total of 12 skybridges.

Each bridge weighs 354 tonnes which is equivalent to the weight of a Boeing 747.

Contractors used heavy duty hydraulics to push the bridges in place.

The bridges will be lifted to the 26th and 50th floors at 12 to 15 metres per hour.

So far four skybridges have been installed.

The Pinnacle@Duxton will have a total of 1,848 units and will be ready by year-end.

HDB said all the engineers, consultants and contractors working on the project are Singaporeans and this in itself is a landmark in the local construction industry.
