Centurion, Lian Beng to build 7,900-bed workers dorm

WORKERS accommodation group Centurion Corporation and construction company Lian Beng Group have joined forces again to undertake a development project.

The second collaboration involves the designing, building and operating of a 7,900-bed purpose-built workers accommodation in Jalan Papan to cater to workers from the process industry. The integrated development will also house a 3,000 square metre training centre for workers from the process industry who are also residents of the facility.

Works will be carried out by Centurion-Lian Beng (Papan), a 51-49 joint venture between Centurion and Lian Beng. The joint-venture firm was selected in a tender put up by Aspri Dormitory, an entity set up by the Association of Process Industry (Aspri), for the project.

The Aspri training centre will provide various training programmes for the process industry workforce to develop and upgrade their skills, knowledge, competencies and productivity. The self-contained community will have extensive recreational facilities and amenities.

The development, sitting on approximately 1.5 hectares of land with a lease tenure of 23 years, is scheduled for completion by mid-2016 and is conveniently located with easy access to Jurong Island where most of its workers are expected to commute to for work.

The process industry encompasses plants involved in the manufacturing of petroleum, petrochemicals, specialty chemicals and pharmaceutical products, and companies providing process construction and maintenance works to the plants.

The first joint-venture facility which the two companies have completed is Westlite Mandai.

Centurion Corporation shares ended trading unchanged at 51 Singapore cents on Tuesday, while Lian Beng Group's counter closed the day at 60 Singapore cents, up half a cent.
