Sky Vue

2013 – 2016

Conveniently located 5 minutes’ walk away from the Bishan transportation hub and Junction 8 mall, Sky Vue condominium is a luxurious residential condominium with unique facilities providing residents with a serene and tranquil lifestyle right in the heart of Bishan. Amenities cover a 50 m lap pool with a sun deck on the 7th storey, sky lounge with panoramic views of the city skyline and a dining pavilion with a party lawn.


To reduce construction time and to increase the overall productivity, Dragages Singapore proposed to build the complex core structure through the use of a self-climbing formwork system. This system helped to reduce manual operations through utilisation of a fully automated lifting process. The complex core structure housing staircase shelters, various lifts, shafts and risers was built in advance of the slab cycle.


Sky Vue was awarded the Building Construction Authority (BCA) Design Criteria “Platinum” rating for its revolutionarily inclusive and user-friendly design.
