With a total retail space of 600,000 sq ft containing 385 shops, the Nex Shopping Mall located in North East Singapore is one of the largest suburban malls in the country.
The mall is built directly on top of the Serangoon MRT Station. Its location was chosen as to better utilise land use by incorporating the existing Serangoon Bus Interchange, since this neighbours the new mall and takes up a relatively large area of land.
Colt was able to offer a full design and installation package for an automatic smoke control system to the shopping centre. The system comprised of mechanical extract fans, dampers, a ducted smoke extraction system and smoke curtains for containment in the event of an emergency.
