SINGAPORE (Oct 25): Huationg Contractor, a subsidiary of Huationg Global, the civil engineering solutions provider, has secured three new civil engineering contracts totalling $26.6 million from HDB.

The projects include earthworks and relocation of bus shelter at Bukit Batok; site clearance at Defu Industrial City and construction of Punggol Drive.

The projects are to be delivered in phases over the next two years.

Patrick Ng, CEO of Huationg Global, says while times are challenging for the construction sector, there is still a strong pipeline of public sector projects in areas such as housing and neighbourhood upgrading, MRT and transport infrastructure, and utilities.

“In fact, there were $11 billion worth of public sector projects in the first half of 2016, which is about 42% more compared with the same period last year. We believe Huationg Global’s rich experience in public civil engineering works puts us in a good position to tap into this pipeline. We will continue to actively pursue opportunities to grow our order book,” says Ng.

Shares of Huationg Global last traded at 14.8 cents.
