KBR Singapore Unveils Garden in the Sky Ahead of Earth Day
Singapore is one of the world’s greenest cities with nearly half of its land area (approximately 700 square kilometers) under green cover, but space is a premium in the city state so having a garden in the sky is a real luxury. KBR’s office in Singapore recently unveiled such a space where employees can go and have a break from their screens, reflect and collaborate.
The garden in the sky has been named Integrity Gardens by employees because integrity forms the backbone of the Singapore office culture. With this in mind, the team felt it only appropriate to name it after the value they hold so dear.
Environmental sustainability is a top priority in Singapore and opening Integrity Gardens is a direct reflection of the passion our people have for the earth. “This area was previously underutilized by building management and cordoned off,” explained Aaron Fowler, Director of Operations-APAC, Integrated Solutions International. “KBR negotiated access to this area and our team transformed it into a sanctuary only meters away from our desks.”
Employees are encouraged to spend time outdoors during the workday and will celebrate Earth Day this year reflecting on the positive impact they can make to the environment.
With the end of COVID-19 hopefully in sight, employees have plans to use this area for corporate functions and other client activities in the near future. The Singapore office will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and look forward to showcasing this space.
Sustainability is fundamental to all of KBR’s activities, guiding our approach, and informing our global activities to support our people, our communities and our planet for future generations.
