Eric - Engineer

Hi there! I’m Eric and I’ve been working as an engineer at the Gardens for 5 years!

What do I do at the Gardens? I conceptualise and draw up plans for buildings, systems and structures, ensure they are running at their optimum operational capacity, and propose new systems to achieve operational efficiency!

During the day, I often marvel at our iconic Supertrees because they are an engineering wonder that I'm proud to maintain!

Join me on sharing sessions to learn more about the engineering feats that have placed Gardens by the Bay on the world map!
