Penetron Products Used: Gardens By The Bay - Singapore


Three distinctive waterfront gardens in the heart of Marina Bay that will define Singapore as the world's premier tropical garden city. The Conservatory Complex within the Gardens is conceived as an all‐weather ‘edutainment’ space, which will serve as an architectural icon, a horticultural attraction, and a showcase of sustainable energy technology. The 1.2‐hectare Flower Dome is one of two cooled conservatories which are central to the Gardens design concept. It will replicate the cooldry climate of the Mediterranean and semi‐arid subtropical regions, and feature an uncommon range of flowers and plants such as baobabs, olive trees, and date palms. The project represented severe waterproofing challenges as it is built entirely on reclaimed land and right next to the ocean.

The architects, Wilkinson Eyre Architects and CPG Consultants in conjunction with Meinhardt Infrastructure and Atelier One, needed no further evidence after having witnessed the performance of Penetron products on Changi Airport Terminal 3.

18’300 m3 of concrete were cast with Penetron Admix in the base slab and walls, Penebar SW-55 in the construction joints and Peneseal Pro on the mountain walls. This part of the project was completed successfully in 2010.
