The Pinnacle @ Duxton Complex

The Pinnacle @ Duxton is an iconic housing project in Singapore's public housing history, with many unique features that set it apart from other public housing projects. It is the first 50-storey public housing project in Singapore, housing 1,848 apartments in 7 towering blocks.

It is also the first in the world with 2 unique sky bridges linking the 7 blocks at the 26th and 50th storey. The sky bridges create possibly the longest continuous sky gardens in the world, offering panoramic views of the city skyline.

Sofotec was called upon to monitor the structural safety of the unique sky bridges and to monitor precisely the way the bending and shear strains are calculated based on the sensors configuration for each link bridge. A total of 32 SOFO long-gauge Sensors were installed and the concentrates on the continuous, quasi-static long term monitoring at a global structural level. Also, each residential building was installed with 8 sensors into the vertical members of the structure, to monitor the strain of the each of the selected member.
