The construction sector is traditionally reliant on manpower. Though the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the vulnerability of a labour-intensive industry, it has provided new opportunities to accelerate HDB's productivity drive in the Built Environment (BE) sector.
Under the Cool Ideas Enterprise programme, HDB is calling for proposals that can increase productivity and reduce manpower at construction sites and off-site facilities (e.g. precast yards), through the development and adoption of mechanisation, automation and digital solutions.
Join us at the upcoming Cool Ideas Enterprise workshop, where we will launch the call for proposals and share the construction productivity challenge statements.
