Located within five minutes’ walk from the future Gul Circle MRT Station, JTC Space @ Tuas is JTC’s first integrated development that caters to both MNCs and SMEs from a diverse range of industries including oil and gas, precision engineering and general manufacturing.
The seven land-based factories on the ground floor are provided with high ceiling height and heavy floor loading, catering to companies involved in heavier manufacturing activities. 36 ramp-up and 95 flatted factories were built on top of these land-based factories, enabling integration and collaboration within the manufacturing value-chain. The development includes 1300-bed worker dormitories equipped with sports and recreational facilities and an amenities centre. Heavy vehicle parking is also integrated to serve tenants.
The buildings are a prototype for JTC, containing a central services and facilities spine, located above the land based factories, that speed up the set-up process and provide flexibility to companies by enabling them to quickly plug-in and operate with ready-built facilities.
While the separate functions within each block is expressed in distinctly different aesthetics, parts of the façade cladding continue and blend into the façade of the next use type located above or below, providing a continuous rhythm that runs around the building, integrating the various parts into a coherent whole that stands as a landmark with its distinctive blue colored panels.
Breaking away from traditional factory types, landscaping is brought into the common areas such as corridors, lift lobbies and recreational rooms. Central courtyard spaces are landscaped to serve as community spaces that are relaxing and environmentally friendly.
