- The lifts up to SkyPark recover and convert the energy produced to usable energy; thus saving energy.
- Our Green roof helps to absorb and reduce the ambient temperature of the SkyPark, keeping it cool.
- There are a total of 650 plants and 250 trees on the SkyPark.
Did you know that Wind Arbor art can be found around Marina Bay Sands?
It consits of four vertical acres of glass façade that functions as a shade for the hotel lobby, blocking away 50% of the sunlight and heat. It is also a piece of artwork by Ned Kahn.
Self-Closing Taps & Flow Regulators
Marina Bay Sands installed delayed-action, self-closing taps and constant flow regulators in the toilets within the public area to reduce water usage. This reduces water consumption to more than 350 million liters of potable water annually, which is enough to supply water for more than 800 average Singaporean households.
- The glass roof in the Shoppes helps to bring in natural day lighting to the building and light up part of the building.
- Photo sensors detect the brightness of the sunlight and adjust the lights accordingly; this reduces the usage of artificial lights, hence saving electricity.
Did you know that the Rain Oculus located in the Shoppes uses rainwater for their water feature instead of pumping in fresh drinking water every time?
This water is also reused for our toilet flushing and part of the canal for the Sampan ride.
ArtScience Museum (ASM)
Our ArtScience Museum is also one of the rainwater harvesting features in Marina Bay Sands. Rainwater is collected and then reused for toilet flushing just like our Rain Oculus in the Shoppes.
