Dragages Singapore, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, has been chosen by CEL Unique Development (CELU) to build the Woodleigh Lane Residences project in the heart of District 13 in central Singapore.
The contract is worth €113m.
CELU is a joint venture comprising Chip Eng Seng and Unique Real Estate.
Woodleigh Lane Residences will consist of six 15-storey buildings with 805 apartments, underground car parks and a swimming pool. The complex will have 58,641m2 of floor area.
Works, which began in January 2018, will last 33 months, with handover scheduled in 2020.
The project proposed by Dragages Singapore was based on a modular system in reinforced concrete and 65% of the superstructure will be factory-built.
The modules will be manufactured in a controlled environment and then transported to the construction site, reducing noise, dust and nuisance for local residents.
Bouygues Batiment International CEO Nicolas Borit said: “The Woodleigh Lane Residences development is a new milestone in our growing activities in Singapore.
“We are delighted to have been chosen for this project, because it demonstrates our expertise in modular construction.
“Through the experience we have acquired on a number of projects, we are able to provide modular construction solutions today which fully meet their expectations, from design through to the construction of the final product.”
Dragages Singapore has already executed several projects, including an extension to the Crowne Plaza Hotel, the Woodlands nursing home and the Clement Canopy 40-storey residential towers, using modular construction method.
Currently, the Bouygues Construction group is carrying out several residential projects in Singapore, including Clement Canopy development, Bideford Road property complex and the redevelopment of the Golden Shoe Car Park.
After the redevelopment, the Golden Shoe Car Park will be one of the tallest office buildings in the central business district of Singapore.
