24 Projects Recognised for Design & Construction Excellence at HDB Awards 2017:

11 Beyond new housing projects, the HDB Design Award also recognises design excellence in the rejuvenation of older estates. This year, Bedok Town Centre’s Pedestrian Mall, upgraded under HDB’s Remaking Our Heartland (ROH) programme, was conferred the HDB Design Award under the rejuvenation category. The pedestrian mall has been reconfigured and refreshed with new paving, landscaping and plants to provide better links to the wide variety of new and old amenities within the Town Centre. The jury was impressed by the sensitive attention to details by the consultants to overcome the challenging site level differences. Designed with gentle ramps and distinct activity nodes and resting points, the landscaped paths offer residents of all ages and abilities seamless connectivity and improved accessibility within the Town Centre, adding to the vibrancy of the town.
