Aconex has been selected to provide its online information management service to the Marina Bay Sands integrated casino resort development in Singapore.
Aconex will provide a central, web-based platform for storing and sharing project documents and correspondence. By using the system, project team members will be able to view, track and distribute their files online in real-time, from any location and at any time.
Leigh Jasper, Aconex chief executive officer, said: “Marina Bay Sands is a world-class development in terms of scale and ambition that will involve organizations from Hong Kong, Australia, Singapore, the UK, China and several locations in the USA.
“Having organisations based in several countries makes it more challenging to control the thousands of documents and project mails that flow between the project team. Using Aconex will streamline this process and help link geographically dispersed team members.”
Leigh Jasper added: “Marina Bay Sands will affirm Singapore as one of the world’s greatest destinations and set the standard for excellence in the entire region.”
When complete in 2009, Marina Bay Sands will feature three hotel towers, each more than 50 storeys high with a total of over 2,600 hotel rooms.
It will also include 1.2 million square feet of convention space, approximately one million square feet of retail space, 2 theaters, an ArtScience Museum and a casino. The development will be crowned by a one hectare Sky Park, bridging across the three hotel towers, which will offer 360-degree views of Singapore.
