Tote Board launches Request for Proposal (RFP) for consultancy services for the masterplanning, design and implementation of an integrated leisure destination at the Singapore Racecourse.

30 December 2019

Tote Board is a Statutory Board under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Singapore. Tote Board is a broad-based grantmaking organisation, working closely with stakeholders and partners, to support broad and diverse worthy projects in the sectors of Arts, Community Development, Education, Health, Social Service and Sports. Through grantmaking, Tote Board helps to uplift the community by Giving Hope to vulnerable groups and Improving Lives of all in Singapore. Tote Board owns Singapore Turf Club as a proprietary club. Singapore Turf Club manages the Singapore Racecourse.

On 30 Dec 2019, Tote Board has launched a Request for Proposal (RFP) in GeBIZ for a comprehensive Master Plan to guide the redevelopment of the Singapore Racecourse into a compelling integrated leisure and recreational destination. The RFP seeks to gather both local Singapore and international firms from various disciplines, including master planning, architecture, landscape architecture, transport planner and leisure attractions feasibility consultants to form multi-disciplinary teams to submit concept design proposals in response to the RFP.

Tote Board desires to transform the approximately 133 hectares of land at the Racecourse into an inspiring, delightful and unique leisure destination that will attract a wide profile of visitors, through injection of wholesome new attractions, programmes and activities. This will require a re-imagination of how the Racecourse land and its existing facilities, infrastructure and operations can be rationalised, re-planned and optimised to transform itself into an integrated leisure destination with unique offerings and delightful public spaces for community use.

The RFP consists of a two-stage process. Stage 1 RFP involves shortlisting design teams based on the teams’ strength, experience and creativity. Stage 2 RFP requires shortlisted teams to develop concept design proposals to be evaluated by a jury panel. The awarded team will proceed to develop the detailed master plan, and potentially provide design consultancy services for subsequent implementation of the Master Plan.

The closing date for the first stage of the RFP is on 21 February 2020. Firms interested to participate in the RFP may access the tender documents through GeBIZ at the following link:
