In Singapore, Changi Airport has opened Jewel – a mixed-use, lifestyle hub for visitors. Taking more than four years and $1.25 billion to build, Jewel covers 1.46 million square feet and includes sky gardens, what’s thought to be the world’s largest indoor waterfall, aviation lounges, restaurants and over 300 shops.
As the main airport site runs 24/7; perimeter security around the terminal needed to be installed promptly. More than 1,000 impact-tested Shallow Mount Bollards and Shallow Mount Lift-out Bollards from manufacturer ATG Access, requiring a foundation depth of 112 mm, were deployed, pictured. For the security products to complement the aesthetics of the terminal and surrounds, the bollards were coated in varying shades of silver.
To meet client specification, ATG worked with its local partner in Singapore to test and certify the lift-out product, meaning it was one of the first impact tested lift-out bollards in the industry. All of the products were developed at ATG’s factory in Singapore.
Gavin Hepburn, managing director at ATG Access, said: “With over 66 million passengers travelling through the airport each year; the new and iconic Jewel project required outstanding perimeter security measures to protect the asset and its passengers. Changi Airport has taken its security very seriously over the last eight years, ensuring all terminals are protected from potential terrorist attacks or security breaches – after airports have been identified by security services as critical national infrastructure.”
He described this project as the company’s third biggest perimeter project to date, after Hamad International Airport Project (Doha) and Jubail Industrial Project, in Saudi Arabia. Visit www.atgaccess.com.
