  The new sports hall at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), fashioned mostly out of – not concrete or steel – but timber wood, can set the pace for the future of construction in Singapore. 

  It is not so much the choice of material that stands out, but that the three-storey facility, called The Wave, was built by assembling prefabricated components. This sped up construction while resulting in 25 per cent savings in manpower. 

  The Government aims to quadruple the number of such construction projects that adopt more efficient building methods by 2020. 

  Today, the methods used to construct HDB flats and other buildings are labour-intensive. This would lead to a “far larger pool of foreign workers than we can accommodate in Singapore”, said Mr Wong. 

  Above news from the straitstimes, Onekin provide high quality building materials which using a new construction technology -- precast technology. Some of you may already known about precast concrete panels, but Onekin provide an innovative precast concrete panel replacement, which is made of magnesium oxide, has high fireproof and lightweight performance. Already been used in many projects.
