Toa Payoh Integrated Development, Singapore

Realising Singapore’s sporting vision with innovative engineering

Toa Payoh Integrated Development (TPID) is Singapore’s newly designed sports-centric development on a 12-hectare site combining sports facilities, a polyclinic, a library and a town park. 

Led by Sport Singapore, we are working side by side with our client and the multidisciplinary team to deliver this project. This integrated development will rejuvenate the mature Toa Payoh precinct, Singapore’s second oldest satellite town, and set a high standard for sporting facilities and spaces for people of all ages to enjoy.

Working in a multidisciplinary team, we are providing civil and structural engineering and technical services, including acoustics, security, façade engineering, and audio-visual multimedia consulting to transform the site into a community-focused integrated development. 

Aligned with our commitment to achieve net zero by 2030, we are carrying out a whole lifecycle carbon assessment to measure the carbon emissions produced during construction. By recording this data, the project contributes to improving sustainable design and construction practices.  

The development is planned for completion in 2030 and will provide the community with new opportunities for active health and mobility, exercise, wellness activities, events and gatherings – enhancing social interaction and convenience to the community in Central Singapore.

People-focused design improves community wellbeing and resilience

Toa Payoh has a rich history of hosting Singapore’s local and international sporting events, including the 1983, 1993 and 2015 SEA Games and inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010. The development is a natural extension of the existing Toa Payoh Town Park, where building roofscapes form a connective landscape becoming an integral part of the park experience.  

Interwoven with the park and the surrounding urban fabric, the people-focused integrated development will be a community destination balancing respect for history and celebrating the future with green space to bring people to participate in an active lifestyle together. 

Each amenity is designed for sport and community wellbeing and resilience. The new sports facilities will meet international standards and promoting community interaction and interest in events and sports. The activity plaza around the library, stadium, and sports hall forms a gathering space for large communal events and crowds. The polyclinic, located next to the park, promotes synergy with active health and mobility, exercise, and wellness activities.

We are thrilled to collaborate with Sport Singapore again to bring social value through our work on this new integrated development with a strong sport offering. Communities will stand to enjoy greater convenience and interaction with more spaces that cleverly combine healthcare, library, community spaces and world-class sports facilities under one roof. ” Chas Pope Chas Pope Project Manager

Design innovation accelerates Singapore’s sporting vision

Working in the constraints of a dense site, we are optimising design through innovations, including stacked, long-span sports spaces to fit multiple facilities within the site. Using vibration analysis and assessments, our specialists are ensuring the structural performance is flexible to cater for a range of different sporting and community uses.

This project enables us to continue our collaboration with and commitment to Sport Singapore, previously supporting the Singapore Sports Hub, to accelerate the region’s sporting vision and masterplan. We also continue collaborating with other key government stakeholders for the various social amenities, including the polyclinic, park and library.
