Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS). Our developments have consistently excelled under the BCA CONQUAS1 scheme, the national standard assessment system on the quality of buildings. While it is not mandatory for private sector projects, CDL has been pushing for all projects to be assessed since it was incepted. Whistler Grand, which obtained TOP in 2022, attained the highest tier CONQUAS STAR2 rating.

BCA Quality Excellence. In 2022, CDL was conferred the Quality Excellence Award – Quality Champion. A recognition achieved for ten consecutive years, this award is a testament to our steadfast commitment in delivering quality green homes and commercial spaces.

BCA Quality Mark. A voluntary scheme for developers, BCA Quality Mark measures the quality of workmanship in each newly completed residential unit, covering all internal finishes such as flooring, wall and ceiling finishes, architectural components and fittings, and M&E fittings and switches. In 2022, Whistler Grand (716 residential units) completed the BCA Quality Mark assessment and is awaiting results.

Community Inclusion through Universal Design. In line with our commitment to prioritise the needs of building users, CDL instituted a company-wide Universal Design Policy since 2011. The policy goes beyond the mandatory requirements specified in the Code of Barrier-Free Accessibility by BCA to create an inclusive built environment in Singapore that caters to the public’s varied needs. CDL also strives to work towards achieving BCA Universal Design Mark GoldPLUS certification, where possible, for all our new developments. We do so by integrating user-centric philosophy into our design, operations and maintenance to contribute to an inclusive and barrier-free built environment.

Recent CDL properties that obtained the BCA Universal Design Mark GoldPLUS award include Forest Woods (TOP: 2020), The Tapestry (TOP: 2021) and Amber Park (Expected TOP: 2023). These developments include multigenerational playgrounds and inclusive features such as signages with braille. At The Tapestry, swimming pools have transfer platforms that allow wheelchair users and the elderly to enjoy the pool facilities at their convenience. At Forest Woods, seats of varying heights are installed to cater to users of different statures.

1 BCA CONQUAS is the de facto national standard assessment system on the quality of buildings based on three areas of Structural Works, Architectural Works and mechanical and electrical (M&E) Works.
2 BCA CONQUAS STAR is accorded to a project that has attained a CONQUAS score of at least 95 points.
