Commtech Asia is proud to announce that Cove Manila, part of the Okada Manila project, has been shortlisted as a finalist for Structural Awards 2018 in the category of “Long Span Structures”. Organised by The Instituition of Structural Engineers, the award celebrates and showcases the world’s most cutting edge engineering achievements.

Cove Manila is a dome-shaped entertainment venue comprising an indoor beach club and night club situated within Okada Manila, a Las Vegas-styled, mixed-use development located in the entertainment complex of Parañaque, Philippines. The 97,000 sq ft entertainment dome is fully enclosed by UVA and UVB filtered glass, and has the capacity to host 3,500 guests – making it one of the first and largest climate controlled beach clubs in Southeast Asia.

In 2015, Commtech Asia was appointed by Tiger Resorts, Leisure and Entertainment Inc. to deliver a full spectrum of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection (MEPF) and extra-low voltage (ELV) works in the capacity of project and construction management services for Okada Manila. This was also extended through to full management of the testing & commissioning.

Spanning across 543,000 sq ft, Okada Manila incorporates two five-star hotel developments approximately 500 keys each, with a stunning collection of 993 suites in completion ranging from deluxe to executive-styled rooms.

A unique challenge in this project required the team to manage the MEPF and ELV systems in appropriate zones, to align with the progressive openings for revenue generation. At the same time, the team had to ensure system integrity is maintained for final completion.

The first out of two confirmed phases for Okada Manila is due to be completed in 2019, and have seen a staggered opening of various public areas since 2017 – made possible through the deployment 11,500 workers on site with a site team that comprises of highly-skilled local and international staff.

For Structural Awards 2018, the winners of each category will be announced at a black-tie ceremony held on 16 November at iconic London venue, The Brewery, where over 450 global attendees from the construction industry are expected to attend.
