Designed by one of the World’s 9th largest Architectural firms, DP Architects Pte Ltd in collaboration with Michael Graves & Associates (MGA), Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) is Asia’s ultimate destination resort, located on Sentosa Island.
Spanning across 49 hectares, it is home to two mega attractions. Southeast Asia’s first-and-only Universal Studios theme park, and the Marine Life Park which comprises the SEA Aquarium (one of the world’s largest aquariums) and the Adventure Cove Waterpark. Other attractions include a Maritime Experiential Museum, an award-winning luxury spa, Singapore’s first casino, seven unique hotels, the Resorts World Convention Centre, celebrity chef restaurants and specialty retail outlets.
DP Consultants (DPC) spearheaded the Consultant Team and its Senior Project Managers led more than 500 personnel through multiple components on this fast track development. DPC’s strategy to resolving challenging issues was seen through implementing innovative change control procedures. By managing all Consultants and Contractors on site, successful completion of RWS was seen in less than 5 years for the 2 major work zones. The first zone, The Central Zone (2008-2010), comprised the infrastructure, basement, four hotels, F&B, retail outlets, attractions and the casino. Then from 2010 to 2012, the second West Zone was completed comprising of additional basements, three hotel components, spa, F&B, the Marine Life Park & Aquarium, the Water Theme Park & Maritime Museum.
As the Lead Consultant on the project, DPC was in charge of managing the overall process from design coordination through to construction management. The practice of adopting fresh approaches to management enabled DP Consultants to ensure successful and timely procurement management for more than 100 NSC and direct-works packages for both Central and West Zone main-contracts respectively. This also involved scope interfacing, site operations coordination, statutory compliance checks, clearances as well as management of full contract administration processes with various consultants and Specialist Teams.
