The Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre (QSNCC) in Bangkok, Thailand, is currently undergoing renovation work. Set for opening in September 2022, it is a key element of the Rama IV district development that ranges from commercial, retails, hotels, hospital, residential to exhibition and convention centre.
Owned and managed by NCC Management & Development Co Ltd, a subsidiary of TCC Assets (Thailand) Co Ltd, a local investment holding and real estate company, the new QSNCC covers a total event space of 78,500 sq m. It will provide two main exhibition halls with over 45,000 sq m, two large conference halls with nearly 10,000 sq m, 50 flexible meeting rooms and an additional retail zone.
The revamped facility boasts five times larger space and a daily capacity of more than 100,000 visitors. Occupying a total area of 280,000 sq m, it will be able to accommodate all types of world-class events on a global scale, according to TCC Assets.
Main contractor on the THB 15 billion project is Thai Obayashi Corp Ltd, with Pylon PCL as piling contractor. Beca (Thailand) Co Ltd has been appointed as structural engineer on the project, while Design 103 International Ltd is the architect.
“Despite the Covid-19 challenges globally, we managed to follow our long-term investment plan to complete the QSNCC remodelling successfully. This fulfils our vision and aspiration to transform the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre into the leading world-class convention centre in Asia,” said Panote Sirivadhanabhakdi, director of TCC Assets (Thailand) Co Ltd.
