MESSAGE FROM MR DESMOND LEE
MINISTER FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT &
MINISTER-IN-CHARGE OF SOCIAL SERVICES INTEGRATION
FOR THE MBAS TOWNHALL 2022 ON 18 MARCH 2022
The built environment sector has been hard hit by the COVID-19 crisis over the past two years. While we have been progressively recovering, and construction output is now close to pre-COVID-19 levels, let us not forget what this experience has taught us. Industry transformation is necessary to build up our resilience to future crises. This is why the Government has introduced measures to reduce reliance on foreign manpower and extended productivity schemes to accelerate the built environment sector transformation, as announced at this year’s Budget and Committee of Supply debate.
I am encouraged to know that MBAS is spearheading efforts to raise the capabilities of our micro builders and look forward to MBAS being a cornerstone of a progressive built environment sector. I look forward to the growth and success of our micro builders through adopting and innovating productive construction methods, leveraging digitalisation and even robotics. These steps will sharpen your competitive edge and build business resilience.
Your leadership and shared drive to achieve a progressive sector is important in ensuring the success of the built environment sector to become more automated, digitalised, and sustainable.
About Micro Builders Association, Singapore
Conceived in 2012 by a group of like-minded Singapore contractors specialising in landed properties building, the formation of Micro Builders Association, Singapore (MBAS) was mooted with the objectives to address the interests and challenges faced specifically by this niche segment of the built environment sector.
On 12 June 2013, MBAS received the approval by the Registrar-of-Societies (ROS) making its official presence as a registered trade association representing the SME contractors of landed properties and smaller scale commercial projects in Singapore.
