Surbana Jurong secures affordable housing project in India

Surbana Jurong, one of the largest global urbans in infrastructure and management services consulting firms in Asia, has secured an affordable housing project in Gujarat, India on 25 Nov 2019

“We are inspired by Singapore’s public housing model. We believe that through Surbana Jurong’s deep expertise and strong track record in Singapore’s public housing and global townships, we can redefine public homes in Gujarat and uplift the residents’ quality of life. Many of the features are new to Gujarat and will potentially set a precedent for future affordable housing in India,” said Lochan Sehra, Commissioner of Gujarat Housing Board.

In the next four years, Surbana Jurong will provide master planning, concept design, design review and project management services for approximately 15,000 units across 12 sites. These sites are located in high populated density cities in Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara and Rajkot.

The Gujarat Housing project marks a significant achievement for Surbana Jurong as they extend their affordable housing expertise beyond Singapore.

“We are honoured to work with Gujarat Housing Board to bring our experience in designing and master planning Singapore townships to Gujarat. Singapore’s best practices and unique aspects in public housing will be incorporated in Gujarat’s public housing projects. We will be opening our Gujarat office in early December 2019 to oversee the completion of this housing project,” said Wong Heang Fine, Group Chief Executive Officer of Surbana Jurong.
