Tiong Seng bags S$47.68m MOH contract to build 10-storey polyclinic and care facility

CONSTRUCTION and property developer Tiong Seng Holdings announced on Monday that it has bagged a S$47.68 million contract with the Ministry of Health to build a 10-storey polyclinic and long-term care facility at Balestier and Serangoon Roads.

Construction will commence in June 2018, using the company's in-house "prefabricated pre-finished volumetric construction" (PPVC) building techniques.

The project will swell Tiong Seng's order book to some S$641.7 million to 2020, the group said.

"Our PPVC capabilities, backed by our continuous investment in construction technologies, have positioned us as a market leader in the construction sector and a preferred forward-looking contractor," said Tiong Seng's chief executive Pek Lian Guan.

The group's counter fell 1.24 per cent to close at S$0.40 on Monday.
