Construction demand to reach $27 bil to $32 bil in 2023: BCA
The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) anticipates construction interest to “stay strong” in 2023. In a press release, it projects the worth of development contracts granted this year to report between $27 billion to $32 billion, comparable to previous year’s forecast.

BCA attributes this to a constant amount of construction need and some supply of waiting work impacted by the Covid-19 epidemic since 2020.
For 2023, public field contracts granted are expected to comprise approximately 60% of construction interest, representing in between $16 billion and $19 billion in worth. Public industry need will be sustained by a ramp-up in the supply of Build-to-Order suites by HDB in addition to the building of commercial and also institutional structures such as water treatment plants, academic structures also neighborhood clubs.

The quantity is in BCA’s 2022 projection range of $27 billion to $32 billion and even goes on the same level with the $29.9 billion documented in 2021.
