    T.Y. Lin International Announces Completion of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum in Singapore

    T.Y. Lin International Pte LTD (TYLI) announces the completion of Singapore’s first natural history museum. Located at the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum will open to the public on April 28th 2015. It accommodates over 1 million South East Asian specimens as well as the complete fossils of three dinosaurs from the Jurassic period. TYLI was responsible for all the Civil & Structural (C&S) and Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) design of the new build for NUS, the project owner.

    “We are hugely honored to have played a part in supporting the continued preservation of Singapore’s natural heritage,” said Mr. Teh Hee Seang, Chairman of TYLI Singapore. “With specimens dating over 100 years, the protection of exhibits was a priority and the team worked very closely with the NUS team and the Architects to ensure that the civil, structural, mechanical and electrical design optimized space utilization and met the stringent operational and end user needs.”

    A seven storey building with a unique pre-historic, boulder like façade finish combined with tiered tropical vegetation, the museum accommadates Singapore’s national and reference collection of preserved zoological specimens as well as the NUS herbarium. The wet and dry collections occupy three floors, a specially designed two storey central exhibition space caters for the three dinosaurs that have recently been acquired and are anticipated to be one of the most popular attractions once opened to the public.

    The TYLI structural design included a one-way post-tensioned slab and reinforced concrete beams to meet the stringent structural fire resistance requirements in the collection zone as well as three slanted columns and a spiral staircase that preserves the interior gallery views. The team was also responsible for reviewing and assessing the casting of the off-form concrete wall and construction of the cantilevered exterior green wall. TYLI’s M&E design was tailored to meet the differing requirements of the research and exhibition areas. The focus of the design in the research area was providing effective and efficient air conditioning and air exchange to ensure a safe working environment. In the exhibition area preservation and maintenance of the scientific collections 24 hours a day was a priority, the adoption of high frequency non-UV emitting lighting and efficient climate control systems were central to achieving this.

    An independent academic unit under the Faculty of Science at NUS, the museum is strategically important to Singapore and the Region from a biodiversity research perspective, with its vast plant and animal collections. In addition the museum plays a significant academic and outreach role as well as providing a public gallery.
