HDB to receive 37 BCA awards

The Housing and Development Board (HDB) will receive a total of 37 awards at the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Awards ceremony at Resorts World Sentosa on Thursday (May 22).

The awards ceremony recognizes developers and builders for contributions in shaping a safe, sustainable and high-quality built environment in Singapore.

23 of those awards will be Green Mark Awards, the highest number ever garnered by a single agency. Winners for that category include the HDB Hub, Connection One and the HDB Centre of Building and Research.

Four housing projects will bag the Universal Design Mark Award. Among them is the landmark integrated project, Kampung Admiralty unveiled last month. It will be awarded the Universal Design Mark GoldPlus Award.

Punggol Breeze and Casa Clementi will clinch double honours with the Platinum Award for Construction Productivity and the Construction Excellence Award.

HDB’s Director for Environmental Sustainability Research Alan Tan Hock Seng will be named the Green Architect of the Year for his consistent contribution and achievements in sustainability efforts in projects such as the Treelodge @ Punggol.

“The awards that we have garnered are a testament of HDB’s good work, especially in the area of creating a sustainable built environment,” said HDB’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Cheong Koon Hean.
