This September, RSP is proud to receive 2 BCA Universal Design Excellence Award for our projects, Changi Airport Terminal 2 Expansion and Bird Paradise & Mandai Wildlife West.

Our Senior Managing Director, Seah Chee Kien and Head of Business/ Executive Director, Law Yoke Foong were present at the ceremony to receive the award from Mr. Desmond Lee, Singapore’s Minister for National Development.

The award recognises exemplary projects, developers and architects for their pursuit of Universal Design implementation in their building projects and innovations in user-friendly designs.

Changi Airport Terminal 2 Expansion

The Changi Airport Terminal 2 Expansion project focuses on the refurbishment of the Terminal building’s interior, including revamp of all commercial areas (retail and F&B) and the introduction of green spaces.

Addition & alteration works were carried out to Terminal 2’s Arrival Hall, Departure Hall and Transit area. It also includes the redevelopment of the Baggage Handling System (BHS) and Early Baggage Store (EBS) to support a fully automated baggage system.

"Today, I am proud to present our hard work of near 4 years, a product that embraced empathy and celebrated partnerships. Architecture is not just about space, it’s about a journey, about stories and most importantly about design that meets humanity."

Bird Park & Mandai Wildlife West

The Mandai rejuvenation project involves the development and integration of a new Bird Park, Rainforest Park, a nature-themed indoor attraction and eco-accommodation options with existing wildlife parks at Mandai.

Complete with green public spaces for public to enjoy, Mandai will be transformed into an exciting integrated wildlife and nature precinct, where visitors can enjoy immersive experiences that bring them closer to nature.

"The design approach for Bird Paradise particularly focuses on creating an immersive and inclusive environment that is intrinsically welcoming, functional, and accessible for all visitors."
