The Wings Towers development has truly come a long way. In only a few short years, the majestic towers have already left an indelible impression on the Victoria Island skyline. Its presence has markedly upgraded the architectural landscape of its vicinity, contributing a touch of elegance and ultra-modernity to it, and setting the pace for other world-class commercial real estate to follow in its footsteps.
Construction is advancing with full steam on the Wings office complex site. With 100% of the structure complete (as of 22nd February 2016), contractors are now focusing their efforts on finalising works on the exterior and interior elements of the building, in time for the scheduled delivery date of August 2016.
One of the construction developments that is most visible to passers-by of the Wings office complex is the near-completion of the building’s external cladding or façade. The elegant façade comprises double glazed solar glazing panels, designed to limit solar gain and control glare, and have been matched to the performance specifications of the building’s air-conditioning system.
External cladding for Tower A is at 95% completion and Tower B at 85% and climbing.
As construction of this landmark project enters its final phases, contractors are gearing up to commence work on: the landscaping of the development; the piling and installation of the floating jetty; the installation of the tent structure on the 5th floor entertainment deck; final testing and commissioning of services; the completion of external works, outbuildings and components such as rising bollards and turnstiles.
The restaurant is currently ready for beneficial occupation by potential tenants.
The building will be available for the beneficial occupation to office tenants by the end of July, allowing tenants to commence fitting out their offices from this time.
Regular health and safety audits are being carried out at various stages of the building’s development to ensure full compliance with health and safety standards.
