Bank of China Building Singapore

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1994

When digitizing my old slides (1994) from Singapore I found on one the old Bank of China Building. It looks pretty much like the one in Hong Kong. No wonder, it's by the same architects (Palmer and Turner), and it was built in 1954.

It still exists today, only with an (much higher) additional block.

Picture showing the basement substructure of the BOC building was under construction, it was a substantial excavation and piling foundation operation in that era. The work was carried out by contractor George Wimpey from Britain.

 30 years later, the same contractor also built the present HSBC HQ in joint venture with John Lok & Partners.

Photo showing foundations work for the old Bank of China building in early 50s. (My comment: the date is end of 1949/beginning of 1950 - see moddsey's comment)

 Construction of the basement was in progress with a Scotch derrick as the only means of rigging heavy steel sections, which was required for the ELS work when excavation is getting deeper.
