  • Supply of labour and tools to carry up glass and materials to level 5
  • Supply and install metal support structure and clear 9.5 mm polycarbonate panels of size 8400 mm x 4100 mm

Time Taken

3 Months to apply for URA submission; 3 trips – 5 hours each trip

Challenges Faced & Overcome

Usually Skylights require approval from URA for a size of 3.6 x 8.7 m. Unless, we did a smaller 2 x 8.7 m, where approval is not required.

However, 2 m x 8.7 m just covered half of skylight lattices. So, URA application and approval was obtained by our Contractor and installation carried out successfully.
