New condo residents upset over defects

Several residents also communicate via WhatsApp groups and on Facebook.

Resident Chook Kheen Choong, 44, who is the owner of an Uber car rental, said: "Actually I see this as a happy problem because it brought the neighbours together to solve something."






Developer achieves what government has failed to do ..... galvanize singaporeans and foster the kampong spirit

HDB should encourage all main cons and sub-cons to build-in defects into all flats.

Actually this developer was in charge of a DBSS project, Trivelis which faced problems too.  Better think twice before purchasing when you see EL Development (ELD).  :-X

no la, developer means they own the land and they are selling the units. the developer will get architects, structural consultants, m&e consultants, landscape consultants to design. then will get builder to build. builder will then sub out parts and portions of the entire project to sub-contractor to do.

Cheap main con sure must use cheaper sub con right?  :-X

I did a search on them and their completed projects are mostly HDBs or government-related, including Nee Soon Camp!

cheaperer and cheaperer ..... I just hope they do the R/C right ..... but of course the structural engineer that certifies the building has his/her ass on the line ....

but I doubt they will play the fool with R/C .... one could get into a lot of trouble.

even when L&M (?) went bust,  their backside is still on the line for the Pasir Panjang elevated highway if I am not wrong.  you can see those "horse-shoe" like cast-iron rings embedded on the pillars or the laser thingies pointing at the whatchamacallit orange sights  ...... I don't know what they are for exactly maybe some structural engineers ;) can enlighten us?  but I gather that they are there to monitor the integrity of those things.
