Integrated Construction and Prefabrication Hub (ICPH)

The built environment sector is increasingly adopting the use of precast and prefabricated building components to improve construction productivity in Singapore.To build up the local supply of such components, a masterplan was formulated for the development of Integrated Construction and Prefabrication Hubs (ICPHs) with 30-year lease term. 

ICPHs refer to multi-storey advanced manufacturing facilities, with a high degree of mechanisation and/or automation, which produce: 

a. Prefabricated individual components e.g. precast columns, beams, staircases 

b. Prefabricated integrated sub-assemblies e.g. Prefabricated Bathroom Units (PBUs), modular prefabricated Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) systems and/or 

c. Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) modules

Why ICPHs?

  • Improved productivity Prefabricating components off-site results in manpower and time savings at the project level.
  • Improved quality control –ICPHs are able to deliver high quality prefabricated components as production is carried out in a controlled factory environment.
  • Minimise dis-amenities on siteNoise and dust generated on-site is significantly reduced as most of the construction work is brought off-site.
  • Safer work environment and higher-skilled jobs –ICPHs automate most of the labour intensive construction work in a controlled factory environment. This creates a safer work environment, and allows workers to take on higher value added jobs. Skills in construction, manufacturing, logistics and information and communications technology will be sought after.
  • Multiple uses for ICPHs –These hubs can also be used for related construction activities such as storage of formwork, construction equipment etc.
