ATG Access lands major security project with Jewel Changi Airport

ATG Access lands major security project with Jewel Changi Airport
The newly opened Jewel complex at Singapore’s Changi Airport has received the highest standards of perimeter protection, thanks to the manufacturer of road blockers, bollards and vehicle barriers, ATG Access.

Singapore's Changi Airport, which has scooped the title of the world's best airport for seven years running, has demonstrated why with the launch of Jewel – a mixed-use, lifestyle hub for visitors.

Taking more than four years and $1.25 billion to build, Jewel covers 1.46 million square feet and includes sky gardens, the world’s largest indoor waterfall, aviation lounges, restaurants and over 300 shops. 

The extension to Changi Airport aims to position the facility as a leading, competitive, and safe international airport for its millions of visitors. As such, it needed the very best in perimeter security.

As the main airport site is fully operational 24/7; the security measures placed around the terminal needed to be installed quickly and effectively. With this in mind, ATG Access utilised its reputable shallow mount technology, which delivers maximum security with minimum disruption.

Over 1,000 impact tested Shallow Mount Bollards and Shallow Mount Lift-out Bollards, requiring a foundation depth of just 172 mm, were deployed around the airport. To ensure the security products fit with the aesthetics of the terminal and surrounding areas, they were finished with stainless steel aesthetic sleeves to suit the futuristic development. 

In order to meet client specification, ATG worked with its local partner in Singapore to test and certify the lift-out product, meaning it was one of the first impact tested lift-out bollards in the industry. 

Following this, all of the products were manufactured and supplied from ATG’s manufacturing facility in Singapore.
Gavin Hepburn, managing director at ATG Access, said: “With over 66 million passengers travelling through the airport each year; the new and iconic Jewel project required outstanding perimeter security measures to protect the asset and its passengers.

“Changi airport has taken its security very seriously over the last eight years, ensuring all terminals are protected from potential terrorist attacks or security breaches - after airports have been identified by security services as critical national infrastructure.

“This project has been our third biggest perimeter project to date, after Hamad International Airport Project (Doha) and Jubail Industrial Project, KSA, and we are proud to have been selected as their security provider.”
