Canberra MRT Singapore

The Canberra station (NS12) is an elevated Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line located along Canberra Link in Sembawang, Singapore. RSP Architects approached Kingspan to design and develop an aesthetic and functional roof system for the station.

The Project

The Canberra station (NS12) is an elevated Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line located along Canberra Link in Sembawang, Singapore. The station will be linked to Canberra Plaza via an elevated sheltered footbridge built across Canberra Link. It is estimated that approximately 17,000 households will benefit from the station due to the upcoming Housing and Development Board (HDB) public housing developments, private condominiums as well as landed properties (Sembawang Springs Estate) located  near the station. RSP Architects approached Kingspan to design and develop an aesthetic and functional roof system for the station.

The Design

The Architect’s design brief and specifications required the roof covering to be in a single length sheet, without end laps. Thermal transmittance values and acoustic performance of the roof relating to airborne sound transmission and rain impact were also stipulated. The project specification required Thermal Transmittance Value (U value) no higher than 0.5W/m2K and a Sound Transmission Class (STC) of at least 38dB. Kingspan was able to exceed both these requirements with our proposed roof build-up. In addition to the acoustic and thermal performance requirements, as the structure being a public transport facility, the lining material had to meet Class O of the Building Standards, and must pass BS476 Part 6 & 7. The KingZip Linea roof layer and the steel decking layer meet these requirements exactly and is also accredited Class 1 Roof Panel as per FM Approvals Standard FM4471.
