Ssangyong Engineering and Construction announced that the builder’s Forest Woods Condominium site won the SHARP Award at the Safety And Health Awards hosted by the Ministry of Manpower of Singapore on July 31.
The SHARP (Safety & Health Award Recognition for Projects) award is bestowed upon a contractor with a safety and health system that meets the requirements set by the Ministry of Labor in Singapore.
The Safety and Health Commission under the ministry conducts inspections of all construction sites in Singapore every year to select the award winners. The prestigious prize went to only nine construction sites this year.
This honor enabled Ssangyong E&C to nab this award a total of 20 times since 2010, setting a new record. In Singapore which became an arena of competition among Korean construction companies, Ssangyong E&C became the only Korean company to pick up the award this year, having its world-class safety management capabilities duly recognized.
The project is to build seven condominium buildings with 519 rooms for CDL or City Developments Limited, the largest civilian contractor in Singapore. Ssangyong E&C won the order for US$ 82 million in 2016.
On the other side, Ssangyong E&C achieved 16.75 million man-hours, which is the world's best no-accident record in the 2nd-phase of the 921st urban subway construction section completed in 2015. The record earned the Korean builder the Champion Prize at the LTA Safety Awards in 2013 and the grand prize at the LTA Safety Awards in 2016. This means that the Singaporean government has recognized Ssangyong E&C’s technological prowess and safety management capabilities.
In March of this year, Ssangyong E&C made big headlines by landing an order to build the WHC General Hospital for US$ 740 million from the Ministry of Health of Singapore by recording high points in the technology and safety management categories.
