Designed with lead designers ar+d of Singapore, the 195 room project builds up to the perimeters of the 100 x 50m block, 7 storeys high, with a large full-height central atrium.  The ground floor comprises a variety of public spaces, with a 5m deep Colonnade circumnavigating the site. Pete will discuss the design process and complexities of working in international design, procurement and construction teams.
