Structural Awards 2017: Emerald Bay project submitted.
The marina lock at Emerald Bay, Puteri Harbour, Malaysia, for which, following a preliminary schematic design by B P Development Consulting Pty Ltd., KGAL was the specialist lock designer and lead engineering consultant, has been submitted into competition at this year's Structural Awards.
The single steel hinged flap lock gates design is the first of its kind in Malaysia and Singapore; it benefits from having fewer components and, consequently, lower capital and maintenance costs.
The successful delivery of this complex project is a perfect example of cohesive international collaboration by teams in Malaysia (client, site supervisor and contractor), Singapore (structural design engineer), Australia (client's coordinating lock consultant and marina designer) and the UK.
The Awards programme is run by the Institution of Structural Engineers; the winners will be announced in London on November 17.
