Lendlease is delighted to announce that it has won two top accolades at Singapore’s inaugural IDD awards, conferred by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA). The landmark urban regeneration development Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) received the highest possible Platinum rating while Lendlease was awarded Gold-Plus in the organisation category.
Such recognition from BCA is much coveted by those in the construction industry because its winners are chosen after a rigorous process of submissions and interviews by a jury of experts from across the industry, including those in government agencies, private corporations, and academia.
In its award citation, BCA lauded Lendlease’s achievements in IDD, which include:
- Adopting IDD successfully with multi-disciplinary expertise across Development, Design and Construction;
- Embedding IDD effectively within the organisation as standard operating procedures, through the development of in-house IDD capabilities and deploying IDD technology throughout the organisation;
- Having senior management with outstanding leadership and commitment to IDD;
- Implementing IDD strategies, standards and best practices across the built environment sector through its culture of innovation and sharing of knowledge with others in the industry; and
- Creating a digital engineering career pathway to professionalise the discipline and practice of IDD.
Lendlease’s double win demonstrates the exemplary efforts made by its Project Management and Construction (PM&C) business and its Digital Engineering teams in delivering innovative solutions. It is also an endorsement of excellence and continuing commitment to share and build a legacy of capability across the industry, in Building Information Management (BIM), Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and drive the implementation of industry-leading technologies across all of Lendlease’s projects in Singapore.
Justin Gabbani, Chief Executive Officer, Asia, said: “We are thrilled to be honoured for our work and contributions to the digital transformation of Singapore’s built environment sector. We believe that collaborations across sectors are the way to advance IDD further as one of the key thrusts in Singapore’s Construction Industry Transformation Map. Our Integrated Solutions Digital Engineering team will continue to stay ahead of the curve in construction and focus on delivering quality buildings through constant innovation and cross-industry collaboration.”
IDD is one of the key thrusts in Singapore’s Construction Industry Transformation Map (ITM) and is aligned to efforts to transform the construction industry by creating a highly skilled workforce equipped to use the latest technologies in architectural, engineering, construction, and operations.
Taking the next evolutionary step from BIM and VDC workflows, IDD leverages data, innovative technologies, and techniques to create value for all project stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle, from design, fabrication, construction and to operating and maintaining buildings.
