Singapore’s iconic Jewel Changi began with the need to expand the capacity of Changi Airport’s Terminal 1 as well as its open-air carpark. This led to the development of a strategic vision of Jewel as a landmark destination, to augment Changi Airport’s position as a leading air hub globally and boost its appeal as a stopover destination for travellers.
The stunning result is a mixed-use development with gardens, attractions, retail, dining, a hotel and facilities to support airport operations.
The Canopy Bridge is something of a centrepiece at Jewel Changi. Suspended 23 metres above the ground, with fog emitted at both ends and a glass bottom at the bridge’s centre, passengers can experience what it might feel like to walk among the clouds.
Macalloy supplied a Stainless Steel Tension System, along with a special spherical Duplex Ball, for the suspended pedestrian Canopy Bridge. This allows for movement in the bridge in all directions. Our engineering team designed and engineered the matching nut and seating to go alongside the tension bars and the ball nut.
