Jewel, Singapore’s latest architectural showcase is located at the Changi Airport connects Terminals 1,2 and 3. Spanning over 137,000 m2 and 10-floors high, Jewel provides a unique experience for both tourists and local Singaporeans alike. Under the impressive glass dome, a lush 5-floor high rainforest, made up of more than 2,000 trees and thousands of flowers and shrubs, encircle Jewel’s centerpiece, a 40-meter rain vortex – the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. From an opening in the center of the dome structure, recirculating rainwater falls 7-floors down into the basement below to cool the opulent, indoor Forest Valley. Located in the center of Changi Airport, Jewel not only offers services and facilities for international air travelers to unwind, relax and explore during layovers in the Lion City, but is a place to relax for local residents as well. Jewel also comprises a world class shopping and dining experience with over 200 local and international restaurants, bars and retail outlets. For the convenience of air travelers, Jewel provides a 130-room hotel, a self-check-in lounge and early bag-drop facilities that entice passengers to discover Changi Airport’s latest attraction to its fullest.
Penetron solutions have been used throughout Changi Airport in the past. Their proven performance made PENETRON the product of choice for protecting Jewel’s vital concrete elements against water ingress and deterioration. PENETRON ADMIX was added to over 32,000 m3 of concrete supplied by Pan United and Alliance Concrete for the basement slab, elevator pits, water tanks, and the numerous passenger ramps. PENESEAL PRO liquid sealant was applied to the exposed concrete surfaces of the planters, fire engine access sites, drop-off points, AHU rooms, Forest Valley slabs and RC equalization tanks.
