Received Order for Construction of Large-scale Medical Care Centres in Singapore

Tokyo, Japan - June 23, 2022 - Penta-Ocean Construction Co., Ltd. has recently been awarded a contract for the construction of the SGH Elective Care Centre and New National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS) by the Ministry of Health (MOH), Singapore. The contract amount is approximately JPY 80.6 billion. Our proven track record for Sengkang General Hospital (opened in August 2018) and Outram Community Hospital* (opened in end of 2019) was one of the key considerations in the successful tender of the project.

This facility is the first component of the future SGH Campus which includes the new NDCS that will provide tertiary care and dentistry education backed by research and smart technology. The SGH Elective Care Centre is designed as an integrated facility for scheduled surgeries. It will offer new opportunities for SGH and SingHealth to pilot new care models and innovate so as to ensure cost-efficiency and better care outcomes for patients.

For ease of access to public transport, the new building will be located in close proximity to the Outram Park MRT station, which is served by the East-West Line (EWL), the North-East Line (NEL) and the newest Thomson East-Coast Line (TEL).

The project also includes the construction of new bridges connecting this new building to the other national specialty centres as well as Outram Community Hospital. This enhanced connectivity ensures that patients, especially those with multiple co-morbidities, can conveniently access their care needs across a wide range of specialties within the Campus.

Since our first venture in Singapore in 1964, we have been involved in numerous large-scale projects, including marine civil engineering projects such as land reclamation and construction of container terminals, land civil engineering projects and building construction projects. Backed by our abundant experience and outstanding human resources, we will continue to pursue aggressive business strategies in Singapore, where our International Business Unit is headquartered.
