The original Katong Shopping Center was established in 1971 and first opened to the public in 1973 as the first mall in Singapore with air conditioning. The original shopping centre was purchased by Perennial Katong Retail Trust (PKRT) in 2009 and has since undergone large scale redevelopment.
The revamped shopping mall recently re-opened under the name '112 Katong' and comprises of six levels of retail and lifestyle shops, two basement levels of car park and a rooftop landscaped garden. With over 150 specialty shops and selected F&B outlets operating extended hours, 112 Katong is expected to offer shoppers and diners an excellent and eclectic mix of retail, dining and entertainment options.
During redevelopment Colt were asked by the developer to design and install an automatic ventilation system in the shopping centre. The solution presented by Colt offered a complete solution of mechanical extract fans, dampers, a ducted smoke extraction system and smoke curtains for containment and extraction in the event of an emergency.
