The tallest building in Singapore: Completed in 2017. The 64-storey, 290-metre high mixed-use project is designed with a mix of luxury residential, hotel and office space. PanU broke the record for the single largest Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) pour in Singapore by supplying 13,500 cubic metres of concrete – enough to fill five Olympic-sized swimming pools – to create a gigantic raft foundation. The pour employed a continuous convoy of trucks at precise intervals over just 41 hours, at one truck every one-and-a-half minutes. Concrete pour peaked at 531 cubic metres per hour.
As the sole concrete provider for Changi Airport Terminal 3, PanU partnered with the project owner to develop structural Lightweight Concrete for the roofing. The lighter concrete roof enabled the terminal to be built with slim pillars that enhanced the spacious high-roofed ambience of the halls.
The aesthetically pleasing Helix Bridge is embedded with three types of specialised concrete products: PanU Watercrete, PanU Anti-Wash Concrete and PanU SCC. Notably, its supporting structure columns are made of PanU Watercrete which was simply poured into the water to set. Conventional concrete requires pumping out water before filling the columns.
PanU Spraycrete – or fast-setting sprayed concrete – was used to line the underground tunnels of phases 1, 2 and 3 of the Downtown Line and Circle Line. These amounted to more than 60 km of underground MRT lines.
We were also the sole concrete provider to numerous train stations and depots across Singapore. These include Bukit Panjang, Hillview, Cashew, Expo, Upper Changi, Tampines, Tampines West, Bedok Reservoir, Bedok Town Park, Kaki Bukit, Mattar, River Valley and Tai Seng.
This remarkable condominium project designed by world-renowned architect, Ole Scheeren was the 2015 World Building of the Year. It required our PanU Hi-Strength Concrete Grade 80 to ensure maximum structural stability for the unique design of multi levels of stacked-up apartment “boxes”. The normal grade is 40.
The much-loved Gardens by the Bay is a 101-hectare (250 acre) multi-award winning horticultural destination on reclaimed land, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir. Its two seashell-domed greenhouses use PanU Green Concrete with a high design mix content of recycled raw materials. The project also found various uses for Coloured Concrete which further saved on painting and manpower.
Centrally located along Ho Chi Minh’s Le Loi Boulevard, one of the city’s main thoroughfares, Saigon Centre is a high-end mixed-use development with office, retail and service apartment blocks. PanU SCC (Self-Compacting Concrete) was one of the types of concrete used to shape Phase 2 of this project, which comprises a shopping mall with Takashimaya as the anchor tenant.
The ultra-chic Atkins-designed Landmark 81 skyscraper will be Vietnam’s tallest building when completed in 2019. The 81-storey high-end mixed-use tower will soar 461 metres high from a square footprint as 25 remarkable thin sections of various heights. Located along the Saigon River in Binh Thanh District, near Saigon Bridge, Landmark 81 is part of a $1.5 billion luxury multi-functional ecological urban project. A combination of PanU SCC (Self-Compacting Concrete), PanU Cool (Temperature-Controlled Concrete) and PanU Early Strength Concrete was formulated to shape this feat.
This sleek 240-metre high luxury development in District 1 comprises a trade centre, offices and apartments, and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, connected by a retail mall at the podium. Besides PanU SCC (Self-Compacting Concrete), our joint-venture unit FiCO-PanU provided 8,000 m3 of PanU Cool (Temperature-Controlled Concrete) to achieve the single largest mass pour in Ho Chi Minh City. We were the sole concrete provider to the project.
