Prefab High-Rise in Singapore
The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in Singapore has asked Theo Salet to join its International Panel of Experts. Theo will participate in workshops and attend meetings with government agencies, research institutes and private-sector companies on the subject of prefab construction.
The transition from on-site construction to the assembly of high-quality prefabricated units has attracted much interest. The objective is to increase efficiency and productivity in the construction industry. Witteveen+Bos has assisted local contractor Tiong Seng and consultancy firm Meinhardt in producing the tender for a 44-storey and 163-metre-tall residential building. There may be a follow-up if the contract is indeed awarded to Tiong Seng.
