BCA Academy Phase 2: An Example of Innovation

Dragages Singapore received the award of contract in October from the Government agency (BCA – Building and Construction Authority) to design and build an iconic training facility. A wide array of the latest innovations will be adopted, like Mass Engineering Timber (MET), Advanced Precast Concrete System (including PPVC – Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction), Zero Energy Building (ZEB), Super Low Energy Building (SLEB), and Passive Displacement Ventilation (PDV).

Being a pioneer in innovative construction, Dragages Singapore first adopted PPVC in the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport hotel extension (CPEX) (2014 -2016) – a FIRST in Singapore’s private sector projects. This construction method is an exemplary of sustainable construction with significant improvement to productivity while keeping environmental impact to the minimum. Riding on the success of CPEX, PPVC was then applied to Woodlands Care Home (2016-2017), The Clement Canopy (2016), Woodleigh Lane (2017), Serangoon North Avenue 1 (2018), and Perumal Road Project (2018). This new addition will further strengthen Dragages Singapore’s leading position in sustainable construction.
