Singapore Sports Hub

Suspended PERI UP Working Platforms ensured the safe installation of a spectacular stadium roof in Singapore.
75-cm wide aluminum staircases guaranteed fast and safe access to the PERI UP Suspended Scaffold Platforms.
In spite of the enormous dimensions, with a 312 m span and a height of 80 m, the roof can be completely closed in only 20 minutes and provides protection against the sun and rain in a very short time.

Project data

Location: Singapore, Singapore

Singapore's new national stadium accommodates 55,000 spectators and is designed to cater for more than 150 different sports as well as hosting concerts and holding parades. As one of the most modern sports venues worldwide, the sports complex also features a movable roof construction. In spite of the enormous dimensions, with a 312 m span and a height of 80 m, the roof can be completely closed in only 20 minutes and provides protection against the sun and rain in a very short time. The vaulted roof architecture prevents any heat accumulation inside the stadium itself and can be opened in a south-west direction which ensures optimum air circulation. In addition, this provides spectators with an impressive unobstructed panoramic view of Singapore's skyline.

PERI UP Flex has proven to be a safe, flexible and productive system which supports and facilitates the installation of the structural steel roof for the stadium of the Singapore Sports Hub.

PERI solution

  • The PERI UP suspended scaffolds are already attached to the roof trusses on the floor and then lifted into position by crane as one connected entity.
  • During the assembly of the steel roof structure, the PERI UP Flex modular scaffolding can be flexibly adjusted to the spatially complex geometry of the steel truss framework.
  • The basis for the construction of the suspended scaffolds are SRU walers from the PERI rental park.
  • Detailed 3-D planning with PERI CAD by PERI’s scaffolding specialists ensures the exact arrangement and alignment of the suspended scaffolds.
