Description

Changi Business Park is located in Changi South, in the eastern part of Singapore. Completed in 2012, a large area of Changi Business Park is a mixed use development project to include a retail shopping mall, office buildings and a hotel.

 

The boldly designed Changi Business Park canopies consist of 32 double layer cushions made up of matt and printed Texlon® ETFE foil. Designed by Aedas Singapore and constructed by Japanese general construction contractor Nakano Corporation, the project is a joint venture between Ascendas Land and Frasers Centerpoint. The Texlon® ETFE panels are permanently inflated with compressed air, ensuring resistance to wind plift and insulation. The Texlon® ETFE panels are restrained within profiled aluminium extrusions which are curved to the contour of the steel structure. Incorporating LED lights into the Texlon® ETFE canopies gives Changi Business Park its contemporary design

 

The lightweight Texlon® ETFE system offers tremendous advantages over traditional roofing systems in terms of energy savings, sound dispersion, lower structural costs and better light transmission.
