Sector Overview

The Built Environment industry has shaped Singapore into a vibrant and liveable city. Aside from building homes, schools, healthcare facilities, and transport infrastructure, our successes also include engineering feats such as Marina Bay Sands, Marina Coastal Expressway, and Jurong Rock Caverns.

Our upcoming projects include Changi Airport’s expansion, doubling our rail network, as well as the redevelopment of the Tanjong Pagar and Paya Lebar areas. Singapore is also set to become an infrastructure hub in the region. Asia’s fast-paced development and growth offers professionals in this industry exciting opportunities to develop their skills and expertise through overseas exposure.

The Built Environment industry is a key pillar of our economy and national development. To remain future-ready, companies are adopting advanced technologies and processes, higher levels of mechanisation and off-site manufacturing, as well as assembly or Design for Manufacturing and Assembly. New technologies such as Building Information Modelling will also boost productivity and better integration in the construction value chain.

Training and development are essential to support talent growth. Through this SkillsFuture initiative, you can gain better career and advancement opportunities by developing mastery of skills in the built environment sector.
