Published by:

Prefab Requirement

Published by:

Prefabrication construction methods were the root of unexpectedly cheap bids for the site at West Coast Vale at a tender which recently closed.

EL Development had the top bid – $314.1 million or $551.15 per square foot, per plot ratio (psf, ppr) for the site (about 3.2% above the second highest bid by a joint venture of Hoi Hup Realty, Sunway Developments, and Oriental Worldwide Investments).

Prefab Requirement Increase Costs

The six bids were decreasing on recent tenders, most likely because of the requirement to use prefabricated, prefinished volumetric construction (PPVC). You can also place the fault with the location – fronting the Aye Rajah Expressway (AYE) and is a whopping 2km from the nearest MRT station, found in Clementi.

The bid at the end of the spectrum was by Singland Homes and Kheng Leong Co, at $236.9 million (only $415.69 psf, ppr).
