Resorts World at Sentosa has awarded its largest building contract to date, worth S$1.05 billion, to a joint venture between major Japanese contractor Kajima Overseas Asia Pte. Ltd. and local player Tiong Seng Contractors (Pte) Ltd.
This brings the total building contracts awarded so far to over S$2 billion. The S$6 billion integrated resort is slated for completion in early 2010.
Kajima-Tiong Seng will construct three of the six hotels in Resorts World and the resort’s thoroughfare, FestiveWalk.
The three hotels – Maxims Residences, Hotel Michael and Festive Hotel – will offer some 1,000 suites and rooms out of the 1,800 to be found throughout the resort.
The contract also includes the construction of a 15,000-square-metre casino located at the basement of Maxims Residences which will feature gaming rooms, suites and lounges.
The joint venture will also build a dual purpose 1,600-seat Le Vie showroom, which doubles as a Plenary Hall, in Festive Hotel. – CNA/vm
