Tiong Aik started out as a construction contractor in 1972, undertaking projects for governmental bodies such as the URA, HDB and JTC. The construction of the hawker centre formerly situated at Empress place was their maiden project. However, it was New World Centre, a commercial property, that marked their first venture into the real estate development business in 1995. To expand beyond Singapore, Tiong Aik formed several overseas joint ventures in China, Cambodia, India, Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia in order to penetrate new markets, such as the operation of BCA-approved training and test centres in Chennai, India. Through excellency and stellar records, Tiong Aik successfully listed on the mainboard of the Singapore Exchange on 21st November 2011.
With a track record of more than 45 years in the construction business in Singapore, Tiong Aik Construction Pte Ltd has solidified its reputation as an established building contractor, holding the highest BCA grading of A1 for general building work, which allows them to undertake public sector construction projects with unlimited contract value. Tiong Aik’s primary focus is on well-located projects targeted at the middle to upper-middle income markets. These projects include landed properties, apartments and condominiums built on freehold land acquired from private parties and leasehold land acquired from the government.
To complement its construction business, Tiong Aik also expanded their services to include fabrication of metal frameworks as well as management of the Group’s construction machinery. Property investments include workers’ dormitories, commercial units as well as industrial properties. Under the workers’ dormitories space, the Group owns more than 10,000 dormitory beds for foreign workers in Singapore. The Group also owns more than 61,000 sq m of investment property space. These units include the 4,635 sq m of commercial units at New World Centre in Singapore – their very first commercial project.
