CDL has become the only developer to have won the BCA Quality Excellence Award – Quality Champion (Platinum) for seven consecutive years. CDL was conferred the award at the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Awards 2019.
This award recognises leading progressive developers and builders for their commitment and achievement in delivering high quality homes through workmanship excellence and quality assurance programmes. The win is an testament to CDL’s strong commitment to quality, and an enhancement to CDL’s brand and product differentiation.
In 2018, all five of CDL’s completed developments achieved an average score of 97.2 under BCA’s Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS). Introduced in 1989, CONQUAS serves as the industry benchmark for quality and workmanship standards of construction projects in Singapore. Although it was not mandatory for private sector projects to subscribe to CONQUAS, CDL has consistently pushed for all its projects to be assessed since the system was introduced.
Mr Sherman Kwek, Group Chief Executive Officer of CDL, said, “At CDL, we have put in a lot of effort into building up and maintaining a strong and sustainable reputation over the years. We continuously refine the way we build, so as to enhance the quality and performance of our buildings as we endeavour to set new benchmarks.”
“We are very honoured that BCA has consistently recognised our efforts and once again bestowed upon us the prestigious Quality Champion (Platinum) award. This is a testament to our strong commitment to quality which enhances our brand and product differentiation.”
Mr Hugh Lim, BCA’s Chief Executive Officer, highlighted CDL’s impact on the building industry in Singapore. “CDL has been a supportive industry partner and pioneered the adoption of BCA’s Quality Mark Scheme, which aims to help developers consistently deliver high quality homes,” he said. “We hope that more developers will be inspired by their success story and embark on a similar journey to ensure high quality projects.”
