Abstract: With the constant call for saving land resources in the small country of Singapore, it translates to the need of intensifying buildings and maximizing land use in the construction industry. Integrated facilities also offer convenience to the hectic lives of locals, in terms of saving time and travelling costs, without having to travel to various places to complete all their errands. For the benefits that it brings, the first Integrated Lifestyle Hub (ILH) – Tampines Town Hub (TTH) - is introduced in Singapore. The facilities planning and design process of ILH is crucial in ensuring the success of the project. Having great influence on the effectiveness of future operations of the facility, careful and appropriate planning approach and process has to be selected and executed. Mass information has to be gathered for effective planning and design of a facility. Facility planner must have good understanding of the intended purpose of the facility, its site conditions and location, building users’ and potential end-users’ requirements, activities involved, and relationship between the different facilities. Subsequently, the planning and design of the integrated facility can be performed, generating various facilities plans for evaluation. Selection of the final design layout of the ILH is carried out by taking into account all the information gathered previously. Once the layout design is finalised, more micro design details and features can then be considered into the facilities. This research focuses on the whole process of facilities planning and design undertaken by a facility planner in a public integrated facilities project. Following the process, site analysis is conducted, while Tampines residents and also the general public are surveyed to find out their preferred facilities, activities and programmes. After that, some design layouts are created and analysed, to get the best layout for ILH based on users’ requirements and adjacencies between the facilities. Some recommendations are offered to provide further enhancements to the ILH, such as sustainable concepts and measures to be implemented. Few suggestions are also given for further study in this topic and for the construction industry to adopt to gain more valuable knowledge in the future.
