Mediacorp Campus officially opened in Singapore
Singapore-based Mediacorp has begun a nine-month migration from its iconic Caldecott Broadcast Centre in Andrew Road, home to the multi-platform, multi-brand media company for the past 63 years, to its new home in one-north.
Dubbed Mediacorp Campus, the purpose-built 12-storey facility was officially opened by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on December 8. The 800,000 square foot building, designed by Maki and Associates and DP Architects, will house nearly all of Mediacorp’s 2,800 staff in a single location. It will be equipped with state-of-the-art production and digital broadcast facilities.
Some 1000 guests and staff attended the opening ceremony which included a show – the first to be staged in The Theatre at Mediacorp – featuring an extract from the Australian production of Les Misérables, Japan’s Drum Tao, Norway’s Angelina Jordan, USA’s Redfoo, El Gamma from the Philippines and Singapore’s very own The Noose and singer-songwriter Inch Chua.
In his speech, Teo Ming Kian, Chairman, Mediacorp acknowledged Mediacorp’s most important stakeholders: “You are the reason we wake up every day, feeling excited and challenged, to produce the best content we can, delivered anytime, anywhere, to engage, entertain and enrich.
We have invested heavily in content and digital delivery to make sure we stay relevant and continue to be part of the lives of Singaporeans.”
During the official opening, Mediacorp unveiled a new logo after 15 years to represent the organisation as a window to the world and a reflection of life.
