Inaugural SGBuilds Award to recognise Singaporean Firms’ internationalisation efforts

National Bank of Cambodia

Singapore, 2 September 2020 – The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) has introduced SGBuilds Award to recognise the local firms in forming strong collaboration with their international partners. Award winners are recognised in the developer, consultant and builder categories, with the pinnacle SGBuilds Star Award category given to exceptional firms.

TW-Asia Consultants Pte Ltd will be conferred with the SGBuilds Star Award in the consultant category for its eight-storey resort development at Palau Island, Republic of Palau. Slated for completion in 2021, the resort will allow occupants to enjoy the beauty of nature with the comfort of a modern building envelope.

CapitaLand will receive the inaugural SGBuilds Star Award in the developer category for its exemplary collaboration with Singapore firm L&W Construction Private Limited to develop International Tech Park Pune (ITTP) Kharadi in India, under CapitaLand’s private fund, the Ascendas India Growth Programme.

Utracon Overseas Pte Ltd will be receiving the SGBuilds Star Award in the builder category for securing a project to build an industrial and secured storage building complex for the National Bank of Cambodia. Utracon was able to provide a quality and cost-effective construction method for their client without compromising on the timeliness of the project.

Hugh Lim, CEO of BCA, said, “It has been almost three years since we launched the Construction Industry Transformation Map in 2017. The SGBuilds award is a good recognition of industry efforts in fulfilling this vision through internationalisation in a collaborative manner. We hope that these awards will inspire other Singapore firms across the entire BE value chain to consider how to pool their capabilities and resources to venture into new markets overseas.”
