Punggol Arcadia comprises 7 blocks of 16-storey residential HDB flats. ( total 750 units ). It has a basement carpark, landscape deck, communal facilities and Precinct Pavilion.

On the average between one and a half to two storeys were erected monthly. Those blocks facing Punggol Central are in an advance stage of completion, almost reaching the eleventh to twelve floor. There are four or five more floors to go. Base on the present performance, it will take another two to three months to reach the roof top.

Looks like Punggol Arcadia is at the moment doing up a mock-up unit.

It involves the following :

1. To paint a sample unit for the Designers / Architects to choose a colour scheme for the entire project.
2. Install the aluminium windows with glass panels.
3. Install the aluminium sliding glass door for the living room.
4. The hand-railings for the balcony.
5. Any other fixtures as per request.

How is it possible to achieve completion of one and a half to two storeys within a short span of a month.

1. Prefabrication construction methods.
2. Identical floor design from second storeys up.
3. Use of overhead tower cranes for lifting of heavy materials.
4. Use of vertical elevators for moving workers and light equipments up the building. ( It can be erected and dismantle at ease.

5. Innovation and clever techniques used by contractors. Today, the whole external working platform with guard rails, protective nettings together with heavy formworks can be lifted, bolted in place in less than an hour.

In the olden days, it may take several days and several workers to do the job.
