Topping-Off Ceremony of NTUC Fairprice Mixed-use Facility
The Topping-Off Ceremony of NTUC Fairprice Mixed-use Facility was held on February 27. When completed at the end of this year, the facility will function as company headquarters, distribution center, shopping mall and bus terminal. Mr. Lim Swee Say, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, attended the ceremony as a guest of honor, which suggests the government’s high expectations for the facility as a hub of Singapore’s largest food retailer. Although very large, the buildings are designed to encompass the human scale with an idea of sustainability, which represents the company’s commitment to social and environmental considerations. The design concept and eco-friendly efforts being highly evaluated, the buildings won the BCA Green Mark Platinum award last year, the highest evaluation of environmental design and performance by Singapore’s Building and Construction Agency.
