The Crowne Plaza Hotel is located near Terminal 3 of Singapore’s Changi International Airport. It now has an extension which, although completed in March 2016, represents a unique and singular example of one of the latest building trends: prefabricated volumetric construction (PPVC). 252 containers were used to build 243 rooms, spread over the 10 floors of the hotel extension. The containers were equipped and furnished with carpeting, tiles and all the accessories of a hotel room, including a bathtub, at an industrial plant in Shanghai. From there they were transported by road to the port, by sea to the small Southeast Asian country and then again by truck to their destination. The manufacture of the containers and the construction of the building took just over 6 months, 26 days of which were spent on assembly, at a total cost of 10.6 million euros (12.8 million USD).
