This came about after its subsidiary, Tiong Seng Contractors, was awarded 2 contracts worth a total of S$223.4 million.

The bulk of the S$1.47-billion order book is expected to be fulfilled over the next 12 to 30 months.

The latest contracts are from SP Setia International for a condominium project and  Kallang Development for the development of  terrace houses.
Notably, these are maiden contracts for Tiong Seng from both developers, an affirmation of the Group’s growing influence in the construction industry.
Mr Pek Lian Guan, CEO of Tiong Seng Holdings, said: “We are excited about our first collaborations with leading international developer, SP Setia, and boutique developer, Kallang Development.

"Both projects are iconic additions to our track record of private residential projects, and a testament to our strength in precast construction and capabilities in marrying design with buildability. We plan to adopt the use of technologies such as precast and Cobiax in the construction of these projects, which will ensure quality workmanship and smooth delivery.”

In addition, the SP Setia project in Chestnut Avenue, the Eco Sanctuary condominium, is the latest in Tiong Seng's lineup of projects that promote energy savings, water savings, healthier indoor environments as well as the adoption of extensive greenery.

It has the 
Building and Construction Authority’s Green Mark Platinum award.
