Kampung Admiralty Open Plaza Update #07

I have finally find out the rationale behind not closing the rain screen. It is a joint decision of all parties to keep it open regardless of rain or shine. It will only be closed when event are held at the open plaza. In fact, it should be closed during rainy days as the wet floor may posed a safer hazards to the senior citizens. It will contribute to higher risk of fall by the elderly.

It is not fully automatic as there is no rain sensor to activate it to close. The FCC need to activate it at their control centre.

Any thoughts, please leave a comment.

Kampung Admiralty Open Plaza Update #06

Kampung Admiralty had many awards but there are also pending issues awaiting to be resolved. The open plaza sky light canopy is not automatic and pose an issue during rainy day.


The open plaza is wet again as the sky light canopy did not closed. It needs manual intervention which still awaiting HDB to resolve it.

It is a safety issues and may result in senior citizen having a fall. It is not evident that anyone is following up on this case as outstanding since Oct 2017.

Kampung Admiralty Escalator B1 to L1 Updates #01

The Service Team was on site on 16 & 17 Jan trying to rectify the problem. It looks like it was not an easy task as a lot of man hours had been put in. This is consider a relatively new escalator as run time is only less than 6 months. The repair had been completed and open for public usage.

The quality of escalator is very important. Fujitec and Kone usually can rectify their escalator in a timely manner. They only spend more man days when doing preventive maintenance. HDB need to review the operation and quality of IFE before they made subsequent purchase for their other projects or have alternative suppliers.

Kampung Admiralty Open Raining Plaza

It seems like the open plaza mechanical system is still not functioning. The heavy raining this morning made the open plaza totally wet.

Lum Chang had not complete the rectification works. It should ideally be automatic. Opening up during sunny days to bring in the natural light and close it up on wet days.

We shall see what happen on the next few days before we write in to the Woodlands team. Let’s see whether the UEMS facility team is proactive on the above outstanding issue.

Something is brewing

I have feedback on the open plaza where the top is not cover with any glass or mechanical protection. It is perfect fine on sunny days. But when the rain comes, the open plaza will be wet and pose a safety hazard to the senior citizens.

A big vertical lifter is now below the top opening. Something might be happening soon.
I shall update once they have completed the works.
The works for the rain screen had been completed and will work during events only.
