MGM hosts technical seminar on its Guinness World Records title

MGM Cotai achieved a Guinness World Records title on January 19 for the Spectacle, the record holder of the largest free-span gridshell glazed roof (self-supporting), making it the first architectural and structural Guinness World Records title for Macau.

To celebrate this achievement, MGM hosted a technical seminar at MGM Cotai on June 15 for nearly 400 people from the engineering community of Macau and Hong Kong.

Engineered by Siu Yin Wai & Associates Limited (Hong Kong), the Spectacle Roof is a meticulously engineered steel diagrid structure spanning over the podium space with a clear longitudinal span up to 138.5m, without being supported by any internal columns.

Dr. Siu Yin Wai and Anthony Cheng from Siu Yin Wai & Associates Limited, as well as Ben Wong and Simon Leung from China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Limited, were invited as speakers for the seminar, to analyze the construction and challenges in development design.
