Fusionopolis is the first fully-integrated work-live-play-learn hub for the Infocomm Technology and Media industries. This $500-million development comprises a building of 23 stories and another of 28 stories, with a total space of 120,000m2. Built to induce distinct "uptown" vibrancy, the development employs innovative building technologies. It will be the first building in Singapore which uses the super column construction method, with the floor plates laid on a single central upper column instead of multiple beams.
Phase 1, a complex with two-tower information-communications hub and a podium, will be linked to the future Circle Line MRT station in one-north. It will be part of the $15-billion, 200-ha one-north hub in Buona Vista. It has shared facilities such as a conference room, meeting rooms, seminar rooms, a 400-seater auditorium, etc. It will also be fully integrated with satellite access and cheaper computing power & bandwidth.
JURONG Consultants was the design winner in the Structural Steel Design Award 2007 for this project. The award was presented by the Singapore Structural Steel Society.
