Acting as a game changing bridge between the fields of engineering and medical research, National University of Singapore’s (NUS) E7 Building serves as a one-stop hub driving the development of healthcare technology in Singapore and beyond.

With its proud history pioneering medical education and research within the region, NUS recognised the need for a paradigm shift in healthcare to advance the sector – from a focus on symptom-based treatment to one centred around disease prediction, early diagnosis and intervention.

That's where the idea behind their E7 building was born – a 16,299m2 building equipped with state-of-the-art training facilities, including 8,000m2 of wet and dry labs, prototype labs and interactive spaces for startup incubation and collaboration between clinicians, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs.

Beca provided design services for the specialist MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) engineering services in this project. We also designed and installed the hydraulic and medical gases infrastructure network in the E7 laboratory facilities– ensuring flexible ‘plug and play’ capability from the moment it opened its doors in 2021.

As the healthcare challenges of the 21st century increase, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, NUS E7 will provide fertile ground for future medical breakthroughs to happen!
