This Memorandum Of Understanding enables greater cross collaboration between the public and private sector with a common goal to broaden expertise across the built environment industry in Singapore and achieve higher productivity

Singapore, 23 August 2021 – Lendlease[1] has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with JTC to jointly research and develop a digital platform for Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD). IDD is a curated set of tools that leverage computational design to automate design processes, optimise design and enable Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) methods in construction projects.

DfMA involves designing and manufacturing construction parts in off-site controlled environments before being assembled on-site. This is in line with Singapore’s Construction Industry Transformation Map to improve quality and productivity in the built environment sector.

Achieving higher productivity and accelerating push towards greater digital automation in the industry

This collaboration will leverage Lendlease Podium[2] to create designs and building components which encourage the industry to move towards achieving higher productivity and adopting more advanced building techniques.

This will help accelerate the delivery of JTC’s industrial buildings and developments. With the combined expertise of both parties, it will fast track the push towards digital transformation of the built environment sector and bring us one step closer towards achieving automation in the industry.

Under the MOU, JTC joins Lendlease Podium’s Singapore Manufacturing Experience (MX) Studio, a collaborative research and design center specialising in the design of building components and systems for DfMA.

MX Studio collaborates across the supply chain to define the design of products and systems which enables DfMA right from the earliest stages of building design. By co-designing and prototyping solutions with manufacturers, JTC and Lendlease aim to encourage the built environment sector to adopt advanced construction methods and materials.

Announced last year, Lendlease has also established a Product Development Center in Singapore with the support of the Economic Development Board (EDB) to accelerate the digital transformation of the property and construction sector. The Singapore PDC is the melting pot of key expertise in software engineering, QA engineering, back-end and front-end development, DevSecOps, data security, product architecture, cloud and UI/UX design.

Quote attributable to Heah Soon Poh, JTC Assistant Chief Executive Officer, Engineering and Operations Group:

“JTC is looking forward to partnering Lendlease in co-creating solutions that accelerate the digitalisation of the Built Environment sector. By lending our guidance and facilities for testbeds and pilots, we hope to spur new digital solutions that can ultimately benefit the entire Built Environment sector to build and operate digitally.”
