Ocean Financial Centre | Singapore

Singapore is not waiting on the rest of the real estate industry – this building demonstrates its status as a global leader in sustainable real estate! 🌏

Located along Collyer Quay, Singapore’s Ocean Financial Centre’s design celebrates the city’s maritime heritage. Towering high over its neighbours,
the architecture is reminiscent of a ship’s sail – a unique way of recounting the era when ships crowded Singapore Harbor, making it one of the world’s great trading centres.

The tower occupies one of the most prominent sites in Singapore between Raffles Place, the city’s historic business center, and the fast-growing Marina Bay on the east side. 43-storeys tall, it features an open podium linking to surrounding city blocks, making it a dynamic business hub for downtown Singapore.

It has won up to 14 unique awards including the Green Mark Platinum Award – the highest accolade provided by Singapore’s Building and Construction Authority 🏆  But what makes this building so distinguished?

It starts with its triple-glazed façade glass and state-of-the-art low emissive coating, which maximises light transmittance and transparency while minimising heat gain. The high-performance, low-emission triple-glazed glass curtain-wall system also provides maximum protection for OFC’s occupants. Furthermore, power-saving LEDs on the building façade and roof create a stunning silhouette along the city’s skyline. The building also has the largest PV system for a high-rise commercial building in Singapore’s CBD, with over 400 m2 of solar PV panels harvesting up to 75kWp of solar energy. Located on top of one of the tallest buildings in Singapore, it is the highest solar panel assembly there!

Not possible without the extraordinary efforts from these and all other #buildingheroes involved!
