Mega Substation Meets Modern Skyscraper

FulcrumHQ powers collaborative construction for SP Group's innovative substation project

FulcrumHQ tackles the unique challenge of building Southeast Asia's largest underground substation beneath a towering 34-story development. Discover how this innovative project leverages digital collaboration to ensure efficient and sustainable construction.

The Challenge

  • The underground substation and commercial development are three hectares – the area of four football fields.

  • SP Group appoints Hyundai Engineering to construct this.

  • FulcrumHQ was chosen to help SP Group’s appointed consultants: Surbana Jurong and construction company, Hyundai, and a large group of sub-contractors to utilize FulcrumHQ as the common data environment and an integrated digital delivery platform for the design and construction of this resource-intensive and strategic underground substation project.

Key Requirements

  • Ground-up implementation within weeks, followed by intense training and change management provided to SP Group, its appointed consultants, and contractors to commence using FulcrumHQ for all project-related workflows and collaboration use cases from the beginning of this project, with the design phase being the first, followed by the construction phase.

  • Secure platform with tightened access control with stringent governance over the platform.

  • The underground substation is to offer reliable, sustainable energy for all.

  • All data both in transit and at rest to reside in Singapore.

  • iOS and Android access for all site staff for quality and safety compliance requirements with built-in workflows to enable seamless, secure, and real-time updates.

  • Rich, meaningful, and interactive dashboards for all parties for them to stay on top of their project contexts.

The Solution

  • End-to-end managed service, fully set up and operationalized within two weeks of award – including configuration, training, and change management for both SP Group staff, their appointed consultants, and contractors. Ongoing consulting and best practice advice and hands-on operational support.

  • A secure, highly available, common data environment and integrated digital delivery for design and construction stages including comprehensive site management.

  • Rich, meaningful, and interactive dashboards for all parties for them to stay on top of their project contexts.

  • Powered by Microsoft Azure. 


Key Outcomes

Standardization through repeatability, compliance, and transparency

  • Templated setup for repeatability for SP Group to utilize the recipes for future substations and other greenfield projects.

  • Zero downtime, and zero escalations – operating for 3 years now (to be completed in 2024).

  • Seamless transition from design project to construction project offering continuity to both SP Group and their appointed consultants and contractors.

  • Comprehensive site management – safety, quality including multi-disciplinary inspection checklists that are nuanced for the substation.

  • Provided through FulcrumHQ’s Singapore-based SaaS with all data both in transit and at rest ensured in Singapore.
