KALZIP AUSTRALIA was awarded the contract for the roof system at the new Singapore International Cruise Terminal.

The Singapore International Cruise Terminal has been architecturally designed by RSP Architects as part of the overall strategic development of the Marina South area for the Singapore Tourism Board.

The new $500 million infrastructure is a 2-berth facility serviced by a large terminal building and is designed to accommodate some of the largest cruise ship liners in the world. 

Kalzip installed the roof composed of a full double skin roof build-up system including the seam clip sub-rail and 3mm thickness alum PVDF rain screen façade panels.

The scope of the contract also included the design and supply of 3mm thickness alum gutters and a unique stainless steel fall arrest system that was specially designed to incorporate into the rain screen façade panels to complete the architectural aesthetic requirement.

The main roof system’s high STC 48 value requirement was a key challenge since the specification could be achieved only by minimising the use of construction materials.

The 1.5mm thickness EPDM rain damping layer on the underside of the 3mm thickness alum rain screen panels and the separation barrier between the Kalzip sheets and seam clips were key components of the value added engineering provided to achieve the required STC specification.

The roof surface covers an area of 23,500m² and includes 65/400 alum Kalzip roof sheeting (which if aligned end to end would have extended to over 55km) as well as over 13,000 individual fabricated 3mm thickness alum panels.
