In Singapore, improving productivity has become an important aspect for the construction industry. Higher productivity would strengthen its social standing and long-term development, and within the construction company itself, it would mean greater efficiency, lower costs and increased competitiveness.

Using technologies have become essential in improving construction productivity and there is more than just one type of technology in the construction today. This upcoming RICS half- day seminar invites local experts to share and discuss on how Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) and Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD) improve construction productivity.
