Samsung will build towers of the Singapore Court
Samsung has won a $ 450 million contract (230 million feet sterling) for the construction of court towers in Singapore.
The contract provides for the construction of two connected towers, with an estimated total area of 113,000 square meters.
The construction works are scheduled to begin in the second quarter of this year, and they will last for about three years. It is assumed that the towers will be commissioned by 2020.
The 178-meter towers will be connected by pedestrian bridges that allow visitors and staff to move freely from building to building.
One of the towers houses a courtroom, hearing rooms and ancillary rooms, while the other houses offices and other outbuildings.
Both towers are designed for environmental projects and will have corridors that are ventilated naturally and high-rise gardens that protect against the midday sun.
Gardens will be located on the terraces of the high-rise building. For energy, the towers will use renewable energy sources, such as solar panels.
Upon completion, more than 60 courtrooms and 50 hearing rooms will be located in the Towers of the State Court.
