Sustainability is an approach that frames everything we do. AECOM brings together a global team of multidisciplinary experts to create a sustainable development framework for the new downtown development in Singapore.
Commissioned by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, our professionals from landscape, masterplanning, environment, transportation and building engineering have collaborated to deliver a sustainable development framework for the planning and design of Marina Bay as well as the adjacent Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW).
By using the Sustainable Systems Integration Model (SSIM™), AECOM has implemented a systematic method to assess the sustainability performance of the whole area.
Based on the findings, our team has provided design solutions relating to specific aspects of urban design and urban microclimate, landscape engineering, water management and sustainable transportation.
The 890-acre (360-hectare) Marina Bay will be Singapore’s key development area for the next decade and is designed to seamlessly extend the downtown district and further support the city-state’s continuing growth as a major business and financial hub in Asia. Spanning 297 acres (120 hectares), the GSW was included in the consultancy to synergize with Marina Bay’s new developments.
