SINGAPORE, 2 July 2015 – MAINBOARD-LISTED BBR Holdings (S) Ltd (BBR 控 股) (“BBR” or “the Group”) announced today that it has successfully secured its second Pre-fabricated Pre-finished Volumetric Construction (“PPVC”) contract for the erection of one block of 11-storey and three blocks of 13-storey student hostel development and one block of 4-storey multi-storey car park with ancillary facilities at Nanyang Crescent, Nanyang Technological University (Western Water Catchment) (the “Project”). The Project is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2017.

The Project’s main contractor is Santarli – Zheng Keng JV, which awarded the PPVC subcontract works to Moderna Homes Pte Ltd (“Moderna Homes”), BBR’s 75%- owned subsidiary. This contract win will bolster the Group’s net order book, which stood at S$555 million as at 5 May 2015.

The scope of works involves the supply and installation of PPVC, which is a light- weight steel modular system where room-sized units complete with internal finishes, fixtures and fittings are pre-fabricated in factories, and are then transported to construction sites for installation and assembly to form modular apartments.

BBR’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Andrew Tan (陈庆辉) said: “We are pleased with the recent contract win by Moderna Homes. We believe that as anapproved supplier for PPVC, Moderna Homes is poised to ride on the rising demand for labour-efficient construction methods supported by the government’s drive to improve productivity in the construction sector.”

Moderna Homes is a recent addition to the Group following the acquisition of a 75% stake in September 2014 and has since been integrated to the Group to realise synergies with our core engineering competencies.

This contract win comes after BBR’s wholly owned subsidiary Singapore Piling & Civil Engineering Private Limited secured a S$196 million contract for an earlier phase to construct the new hall of residence for Nanyang Technological University at Nanyang Avenue (refer to BBR’s announcement dated 1 July 2014). Notably, the project was the first public high-rise development in Singapore to deploy PPVC technology.
