Resorts World picks China firm for Universal project

SINGAPORE: China Jingye Engineering Corporation Ltd (Singapore branch) has been chosen to build the Universal Studios Singapore theme park in Singapore by Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS).

The project is worth S$705 million to China Jingye, a wholly-owned subsidiary of one of China's biggest construction conglomerates, the Metallurgical Corporation of China(MCC) Group.

The Universal Studios Singapore is part of the attractions at the S$6 billion RWS development.

RWS, in a statement said, China Jingye would undertake the general building works of the theme park. This includes structural buildings, facades, walkways and an amphitheatre.

“Universal Studios Singapore's 24 attractions, designed and pre-fabricated by renowned theme-park ride manufacturers worldwide, would also be installed under the coordination of China Jingye,” RWS added.

The Chinese government-linked MCC Group is one of the country’s top five construction-engineering companies.

The MCC has been involved in the structural design, project management and consultation of some of Chinas biggest landmark projects. These include, the Beijing Olympics “bird nest main stadium, the new Beijing Opera House and the China Central Television (CCTV) headquarters.

Last September, the MCC won a S$60 million contract to supply, fabricate and deliver 23,000 tonnes of structural steel for the RWS venture.

RWS, Asia's leading family holiday destination, is on track for a soft opening in early 2010.

RWS, has to date, awarded building contracts totalling S$2.7 billion.
