First Prefab EC by CDL

Post by ECS » Thu Jun 04, 2015 12:17 pm

Likely the world’s largest application of Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction for a large-scale residential project - Expected to boost construction productivity by more than 40% and save some 55,000 man days At the launch of the annual Singapore Construction Productivity Week today, it was announced that City Developments Limited (CDL) will be the first developer in Asia to adopt the use of advanced construction technology, Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC), for a large-scale residential development.

In the use of PPVC, prefabricated building modules are hoisted into position and assembled in a Lego-like manner. Some 3,300 building modules will be used to build CDL’s Executive Condominiums (EC) named The Brownstone at Canberra Drive in Sembawang. The Brownstone EC comprises eight 10 to 12-storey blocks with an estimated 636 units. This is likely to be the largest application of PPVC in the world for a large-scale residential project.

Mr Kwek Leng Joo, CDL Deputy Chairman, said, “As an established developer committed to innovation and green practices, CDL has continuously explored using sustainable designs and construction technologies to develop buildings in a productive, safer, and eco-friendly manner. The extensive use of PPVC for this executive condo project is ideal due to its modularity of units which we have embraced from the design stage. Productivity is expected to increase by more than 40% and will save some 55,000 man days, compared to using conventional construction methods for The Brownstone EC (executive condo ).The project should complete four months ahead of schedule with the adoption of this game-changing technology.” He added that the building design and quality of construction will by no means be less superior to conventional buildings.
