KTP Consultants, a member of Surbana Jurong, is the Civil & Structural Engineer for The Scotts Tower, which was conferred World Gold in the prestigious FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2020.
Unlike typical buildings, The Scotts Tower has its entire structure held up by four inward-slanting columns. To create open communal spaces, its load of 30 storeys is transmitted down to a single, elevated floor plate, instead of the conventional extension of the apartment unit columns to the ground level, making the project structurally challenging. In addition, the project’s location near the MRT tunnels made the construction of the two basement levels in the soft ground extremely challenging.
Aaron Foong, Managing Director of KTP, shared, “Being the engineers for The Scotts Tower affirms KTP’s perseverance and capabilities in overcoming the design challenges through innovative engineering solutions. It is an honour to be part of the team that helped make this architectural icon and its FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Gold Award a reality.”
