Productivity Innovation Project

The Productivity Innovation Project (PIP) incentive scheme co-funds up to 70% of the costs for technology adoption and innovations that improve productivity at construction sites.

In line with the measures announced at Supplementary Budget 2020, the PIP scheme will be enhanced to encourage enterprises to continue their productivity upgrading and digitalisation efforts. The maximum funding support level will be raised to up to 80% from 1 April 2020 to 31 December 2020.

The scheme aims to:

  • Defray the costs required to re-engineer processes or adopt labour-efficient construction technologies.
  • Encourage construction-related companies to embark on solution development projects that build up their capabilities as well as improve site productivity and reduce site workers.

Who can apply

Construction-related companies that are registered and located in Singapore are eligible to apply for support.
