Description

Sentosa is Singapore`s premier island resort getaway. It is a one-stop tourist destination which offers a unique blend of leisure and recreational facilities, including family attractions, sea sports, golf courses and hotels. The Sentosa Integrated Resort is a unique attraction and world class resort, offering the whole family a memorable leisure experience through an enthralling mix of recreational and entertainment facilities that are unique in the Asia-Pacific region. Set in a 49ha site in the northern part of this tropical island, the proposal must also leverage on the latest innovations to showcase and create spectacular attractions which are designed and planned for the local equatorial climate in its beautiful tropical island setting.

Texlon® ETFE cladding was selected to cover several canopies covering over 30,000m2. These canopies used a varying print patterns to ensure ambient comfort and protect park goers from solar gain.

The Texlon® ETFE cladding installation was performed using rope access techniques and Vector Foiltec’s unique trafficable netting system which enabled other trades to work below without significant exclusion zones.
