Hougang BTO development gets top award for construction quality

A Build-To-Order (BTO) project in Hougang has become the first public housing project to receive the highest Building and Construction Authority (BCA) accolade for construction quality, said the Housing and Development Board (HDB) on Sunday (Sep 20).

Hougang Capeview, which comprises 781 residential units in six blocks at Upper Serangoon Road, received a Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS) score of more than 95, above the national average of 88.2. The CONQUAS score is BCA’s measure of construction quality across Singapore.

The project, which was completed in January, also received a CONQUAS Star, the highest accolade achievable for quality. HDB attributed the win to contractor Qingjian International’s construction planning, including implementing earth control measures and a safety management system.

In total, HDB recognised 11 building contractors for high construction standards and innovation in 12 housing projects. The companies that received the HDB Construction Awards also included Rich Construction Company and six-time winner Straits Construction Singapore.
