Baker Hughes Singapore original facility was built in 1978. There was further plan in 2010 to house all individual business units with buildings. The upgrading was also target to adhere to the latest Fire Safety requirement.
This Addition and Alteration Project was awarded to our Singapore office – GSIB PTE LTD as Design and Build Contract and finally completed at $10,500,000.00 included additional works that came along the way.
The project was completed with the following challenges -
