Swimming on the Edge

Swimming on the Edge
September 17, 2009

A 150 metre-long swimming pool and surrounding roof-top garden bridging the top of the three hotel towers are set to give swimmers a unique aquatic location.

Plans for Singapore's Marina Bay Sands integrated resort feature the 'infinity pool' overlooking the city skyline on top of its three 55-storey hotel towers. At a height of 200 metre above ground, it will be the highest hotel pool in Singapore.

To be known as the Sky-Park, the pool and roof-top garden will also feature an observation deck set on a cantilever, which the public will be able to access via a non-stop lift from the ground to the top.

With an area of 12,400 metre2, the Sky-Park will hold up to 3,900 people. Weighing over 7,000 tonnes, the Sky-Park has been constructed offsite.

Lifting of the structure will start within the next two weeks and will see pieces of its structure lifted into position at the top of the towers separately with heavy lifting equipment. The equipment will hoist the segments into place using a computerised mechanism which controls cables attached to temporary lifting gantries.

Construction work on the $150-million SkyPark should be completed around January next year, and the park should open in the second quarter of next year.
