Bouygues Construction subsidiary Dragages Singapore has signed a PPP contract with the Singapore Sports Council to finance, design, construct and operate the new Singapore Sports Club.
The contract is the world’s largest sports infrastructure PPP.
The work, which will be carried out entirely by Dragages Singapore, is worth £600M to Bouygues.
Located on a 35 hectare site only 15 minutes from Changi international airport, the Singapore Sports Hub is a huge integrated sports and leisure complex. Work will begin in September 2010 for delivery 43 months later in April 2014 and will involve up to 2,500 employees.
Among the facilities to be built are:
- a new 55,000-capacity National Stadium with a retractable roof and air-conditioned seating
- a 6,000-capacity indoor Aquatic Centre and a water sports centre for the general public
- a 3,000 capacity multi-purpose arena that will be fully scalable
- the existing 12,000-capacity Singapore Indoor Stadium, which will be incorporated into the programme
- an exhibition centre, a sports museum and office space for sporting associations
- 41,000 square metres of commercial space and food and beverage outlets.
Located within the city and well connected to the mass transit system, the Singapore Sports Hub will be the country’s prime sports and leisure complex while playing a key role in boosting the development of the sports industry. It will be able to host all types of world-class events such as sports events, concerts, exhibitions and conventions.
