Did you know?
Singapore is the world’s only island-city state and is located at the southernmost tip of continental Asia and peninsular Malaysia. With 5.5 million residents in an area of 719 square kilometers, Singapore is the second-most densely populated area in the world.
Singapore has been named the easiest place to do business for 10 straight years by the World Bank, the most technology-ready nation by the Economist Intelligence Unit, and the city with the best investment potential by BERI. It has also been dubbed the “City Garden” due to its commitment to preserving nature. The island has 17 reservoirs and over 1.3 million trees. Nearly half of Singapore is greenery.

In Singapore, Sapa offers aluminium solutions to the building and construction market.
Singapore’s warm environment provides an opportunity for buildings to become energy producers, utilizing the power of the sun and wind. Sapa’s solar solutions help buildings utilize daylight for energy efficiency. Combined with solar shading, Sapa can deliver a truly functional alternative for the modern skyscrapers of Singapore.
Aluminium-based solutions are beneficial for buildings for several reasons, including recyclability, with a recovery rate of 95 percent. This means more materials for use in other products, and less wasted resources. Aluminium is the natural material of choice for the green gardens of Singapore.
A project we are proud of:
The Marina Bay Sands resort (pictured above and at right) might be the most known and recognized building in Southeast Asia. In addition to a casino and convention center, a shopping mall and museum, seven elite restaurants, two theaters and an ice skating rink, the resort includes a 2,561-room hotel. And above it all, according to Wikipedia, the complex has a 340-meter-long SkyPark, complete with swimming pool, atop the world's largest public cantilevered platform.
Technal – one of Sapa’s aluminium building systems brands – has provided material for more than 2,000 sliding doors for the hotel rooms at Marina Bay Sands.
