Contract T302 for the Construction of Facility Building and Tunnels for Thomson-East Coast Line was awarded to China Railway First Group Co., Ltd. Singapore Branch at a contract sum of S$242.4 million in June 2016. This includes a shell station near Gardens by the Bay (Bay East).
The station was first named Gardens Bay East and appeared on the rail system map with the station code TE22A in May 2018, along with the confirmed stations for the Jurong Region Line. Gardens Bay East was later removed from the rail system map in a subsequent revision.
In January 2019, it was announced that the shell station at Gardens by the Bay (Bay East) would be named Founders’ Memorial, scheduled for opening in tandem with the Founder’s Memorial itself. The contract for the construction of Founders’ Memorial station is likely a negotiated contract with China Railway First Group Co., Ltd. Singapore Branch, which was responsible for the construction of the shell station under Contract T302. China Railway First Group was awarded a $242.4 million contract to build Founders’ Memorial Station.
The station will be built by converting the TEL Facility Building at Gardens Bay East, which was built under Contract T302, to a fully-furnished MRT Station.
