Urban Redevelopment Authority Volunteers Learning Journey Tour 30 November 2019 https://thefullertonheritage.com/tours https://www.ura.gov.sg . The grey Aberdeen granite Fullerton Building sits on 41,100 square metres (442,400 square feet) of land. The height of its walls measures 36.6 metres (120 ft) from the ground. The building has Neo-classical architectural features which include a two-storey fluted Doric colonnades on their heavy base, & the lofty portico over the main entrance with trophy designs & the Royal Coat of Arms, crafted by Italian Cavaliere Rudolfo Nolli. Originally, there were five distinct frontages, each treated in the Doric order. 14 elevators served the four floors plus the basement floors. A hollow cellular raft foundation was proposed by the original contractors in the 1920s to save cost because bedrock lies directly below the building. The Fullerton Building also possesses the one and only barrel-vaulted, coffered ceiling in Singapore. . The building was officially gazetted on December 7, 2015, as Singapore's 71st national monument, by the country's National Heritage Board (NHB). With its new status, the building will be preserved under the Preservation of Monuments Act. The former Fullerton Building is one of three icons to be given the national monument status this year. The other two are Jurong Town Hall and Istana Kampong Glam. . The Fullerton Hotel Singapore won the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List award. On 18 July 2001, the hotel received an architectural heritage award from the Urban Redevelopment Authority for its successful restoration of the former Fullerton Building. . . . . . .

Ascott Raffles Place Singapore 2 Finlayson Green, Singapore 049247 . https://www.the-ascott.com/en/singapore/singapore/ascott-raffles-place-singapore/apartment.html . The Ascott Group Limited (Ascott) has been conferred the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Architectural Heritage Award 2009 for carefully preserving unique features of a 1950s heritage icon while transforming it into its flagship premier serviced residence, Ascott Singapore Raffles Place. . Formerly known as Asia Insurance Building, it used to be the tallest building in Southeast Asia in the 1950s, a symbol of Singapore’s aspiration to be a key financial & commercial hub. After acquiring Asia Insurance Building in 2006, Ascott decided to preserve the building's heritage & charm while creating a serviced residence with modern comforts. Ascott undertook intensive planning & a S$60 million restoration effort to preserve the office tower which was gazetted by the URA in April 2007 as a conservation building. . As the original window glass was thin & provided little thermal & sound insulation, Ascott brought in acoustic consultants & window specialists to replace the existing over 1,000 glass panes with laminated glass to sound proof the apartments from the bustling street & insulate against the sun. More than 300 steel window frames with brass handles have been retained to maintain the exterior integrity of the building. . With the original Travertine marble loosening from the building & losing its shine over the years, Ascott lovingly hand secured every 20,000 piece of the original premium Travertine marble cladding & polished them to restore their luminosity. . An original James Cutler designed brass mail chute has been conserved & is now a unique feature located at the lift lobby of Ascott Singapore Raffles Place. James Cutler was an American designer & architect who invented the mail chute in the 1880s where mail could be dropped from a high point & collected at a central depository. . .

Ascott has also conserved the five-footway, made of Nero Portaro Italian marble, around the perimeter of the building, & two Nero Portaro pillars at the front of the property, where two inlaid plaques were set in 1953 to commemorate the coronation of the Queen of England & in 1955 for the official opening of Asia Insurance Building. The Nero Portaro marble panels have been polished to bring back their former richness & gloss. . The stainless steel crown on top of the building has also been retained. The Asia Insurance Building was decked out with a crown to commemorate the coronation of the Queen of England in 1953.

The motif now features as a decorative air-conditioner grille in every apartment, encapsulating the inherent spirit of the original building & acts as a subtle reminder to guests of its history. . Besides preserving the building's heritage features, Ascott also took effort to ensure that Ascott Singapore Raffles Place is environmentally friendly. The serviced residence has been awarded the Green Mark Award by Singapore's Building & Construction Authority in 2007, highlighting the building's excellent green standards & Ascott's dedication towards environmental awareness & long-term sustainability. .
