Check out our new prefabrication methods and initiatives to boost construction productivity!

2 Along with the adoption of PBUs, HDB will also implement the concrete Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) method in 35% of its projects by 2019. This method involves constructing and assembling 3-dimensional (3D) prefabricated modular units with finishes in a controlled factory environment. At the factory, the 3D volumetric components are combined in different configurations (including bedrooms, living room, household shelter, and kitchen) to create different flat layouts, and pre-fitted with floor and wall finishes, window frames and a preliminary coat of paint, before being transported to the construction site for installation.
