About St James Power Station

St James Power Station was the Municipal government’s first foray into a power station of such large magnitude. Its monumental scale was borne of the efforts of experienced engineers, architects and builders who specialised in steel construction. The Power Station’s steel skeleton was enveloped in fair-faced brickwork that elevated its utilitarian purpose, employing locally manufactured industrial bricks that became widely available from the early 1900s.

The building also illustrates a connection to the larger economic systems of the time. Singapore was both a key trading centre and consumer market for manufactured products from the UK. Most of the materials of St James Power Station were manufactured overseas, imported, and assembled on site.

Throughout the years, St James Power Station has went through several changes in ownership and use. Mapletree led two rounds of restorations in 2006 and 2018 to arrest the building deterioration and reverse latter-day modifications to the building facades and interiors back to the original design intent.
