Mott MacDonald appointed on SG$82 million university accommodation project, Singapore

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to provide mechanical and electrical consultancy services for the SG$82 million (£41 million) development of two new residential halls at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.

NTU has the largest on-campus residential population in Singapore, with over 9,500 undergraduate and graduate students and 500 faculty and research staff currently living on campus. The new residential halls will comprise eight blocks of hostel rooms, with 860 single occupancy rooms and 195 double rooms for students and 30 self-contained apartments for staff. The development will also include a 200-seat multi-purpose hall and gymnasium.

The consultancy’s role as mechanical and electrical services engineer covers the complete design, contract procurement and project management of the development. Mott MacDonald will also collaborate with other consultants working on the project to work towards achieving the expectations of NTU.

The new halls are being designed to achieve Green Mark Platinum certification – Singapore’s highest sustainability standard. Sustainable features proposed include photo-voltaic panels, energy saving fluorescent lighting, presence sensor automated lighting control, sunpipes, variable refrigerant volume air-conditioning, a solar hot water system and efficient water fittings.

Mott MacDonald’s project director CheeChuan Tan said: “The mechanical and electrical services we provide will help provide reliability, flexibility and extendibility to serve the needs of the campus population.”

The project, which is part of NTU's plan to add 5,000 new hostel places by 2015, is due to be completed by the middle of 2014.
