Sembawang E&C wins S$400m deal for Marina Bay Sands north podium

Sembawang Engineers and Constructors has won a S$400 million contract to build the North Podium of the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort.

The podium, which will have four upper levels and four basements, will house the casino, theatres and a retail arcade.

Construction work will start this month and expected to be completed by April 2009.

The company is also building the new Downtown Line Bayfront MRT station in Marina Bay which will connect directly to the resort’s Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) centre.

The S$5 billion Marina Bay Sands integrated resort is due to open late next year.

It will also feature hotel rooms housed in three towers with a sky park connecting the towers.

Sembawang E&C is no stranger to integrated resort products. It is also undertaking the entire foundation work and building a basement for the Resorts World at Sentosa integrated resort. That contract was worth S$250 million. – CNA /ls
