The Jewel is an iconic mixed-use complex to be built at Singapore Changi Airport, serving as a central hub connecting T1, T2 and T3. It is a joint development project of Changi Airport Group and CapitaMalls Asia. Designed by the world renowned Safdie Architects, this signature lifestyle destination will offer aviation and travel-related facilities, a wide range of retail offerings, as well as unique leisure attractions, including a large-scale, lush indoor garden. The steel and glass structure building will consist of 5 storeys above ground and 5 basements.
Installing solar panels on this iconic building demands intimate knowledge of architectural integration, experience in the built environment and respect of aesthetics apart from sound engineering fundamentals.
The award of this 460 kWp solar project to SolarGy is a testimony of their forte in architectural integration of solar panels into the built environment - a very important aspect to enthuse Architects and Developers to adopt solar panels on a more extensive scale so as to have significant impact on carbon reduction.
SolarGy is excited about the opportunity to work alongside Safdie Architects and the project consultants to jointly develop innovative solutions that meet the demanding aesthetics and level of architectural detailing and at the same time meet the engineering requirements including energy performance target, reliability and maintainability requirements. Through the intensive design co-ordination sessions, SolarGy is confident to build new skills and capabilities, demonstrate true leadership in solar architectural integration and will be more well positioned to take on many more iconic projects to come.
