Prefabrication Technology for Upgrading Public Housing in Singapore: a Case Study of Chin Swee Upgrading Precinct

The Housing & Development Board (HDB) is the sole public housing authority in Singapore charged with the primary responsibility of providing quality, affordable housing for all Singaporeans. In addition to this, HDB also undertakes infrastructure development for all its estates, as well as other agency works. Since its inception in 1960, HDB is credited with completing well over 700 000 flats which currently house 86% of Singapore’s population; about 90% of these flats are owned by their occupants. J.M. Lau, H.H. Tay and N.B. Chen
