10 Sep 2014 | Getting the STAR at the 2014 Green and Gracious Builder Scheme Awards

Only five companies received the STAR rating at the Green and Gracious Builder Awards (GGBS) ceremony in 2014. Conferred by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), Straits Construction was lauded for our innovative initiatives for our residential project, Kovan Regency.

We used excess construction materials to build recreational facilities for our workers, and their recreational needs were given a boost with a multi-purpose court, table tennis table, and gym equipment made from pre-fabricated concrete planks, timber materials and surplus recycled concrete respectively. Those with green fingers, enjoyed tending to a vegetable patch on site. Where possible, we try to minimise the dust and noise emitting from our projects. For Kovan Regency, we planted trees at the borders to act as natural barriers, thus providing a more comfortable environment for the workers and the community at large.

10 Sep 2014 | Honoured with Highest CONQUAS score

The highest (Construction Quality Assessment Scheme) CONQUAS score ever bestowed belongs to us at 94.2. The project is Fernvale Foliage at Sengkang, a 504-unit development. CONQUAS is the standard assessment system for the quality of building projects and the industry’s national yardstick for construction quality.

The prefab concrete structures helped improve constructability and boosting productivity. This, and other achievements, made possible the high scores received. Our win and accolade of such a record is testament to the continuous improvement we place on construction quality in public housing. The HDB Construction Excellence Award was handed out on 10 September 2014.

30 Aug 2014 | Bring out the Champion in Us

A total of 500 staff & family from Straits Construction together with friends of Club Rainbow turned up on a bright sunny Saturday morning on 30 August 2014 at Kovan Sports Hub to participate in the Family Day event. The event theme was “Bring out the Champion in Us” which helped uplift the spirits of the children and caregivers. They had a ball of a time with a plethora of activities such as Bloop Ball, Paintball and Zorb Ball.

The new Straits Construction logo was launched at this event to share the new brand identity with the tagline "Higher Further Together".

This is the third year that the company has invited staff & family members to participate with Club Rainbow beneficiaries & their families in this meaningful Family Day event.

Straits Construction shall continue to organise healthier and more fun-filled activities in the future.
