The construction of 313@somerset, a premier retail shopping mall in Singapore, was on a fast track from the beginning. The mall has eight floors in total and accommodates 177 retail outlets. Easy access is possible from the basement level, which has a direct link to the Somerset MRT metro station. 313@somerset, managed by Lend Lease, was planned and built with people flow clearly in mind. KONE carried out a comprehensive traffic planning analysis to determine the optimal number of elevators and escalators to effectively cater to the needs of shoppers. However, actual construction of the shopping mall required a bit more planning. Not only did the Stamford Canal run through the core of the property; but the local metro station was open during the entire construction process, moving approximately 55,000 commuters per day, all walking past the construction site.
