Civil and Structural Consultant for a specialised school in Woodlands, including appointment of external architects, mechanical and electrical consultants, and quantity surveyors, and delivery of the project with the quality and time standards set by the client.

Facilities include an indoor sports hall, outdoor soccer pitch, technical rooms for housekeeping training, retail outlet training, food and beverages training, and mechanical and electrical laboratories. Precast beams and hollow core slabs were used at the classroom and workshop blocks.
