Dragages Singapore is a member of the Bouygues Construction Group, a Company created in 1952 in France and now active in over 80 countries. We offer a comprehensive range of expertise, covering financing, design, construction and facility management.
Shared Innovation lies at the heart of our business and drives us to achieve excellence in every aspect of our business. A good example is our leadership in the PPVC (Pre-fabricated Pre-finished Volumetric Construction) technology. This method of construction consists in breaking down any building into transportable pre-finished units that are manufactured in a quality controlled factory environment then craned into position on site in the manner of lego blocks. PPVC can potentially achieve a productivity improvement of up to 50% in terms of manpower and important time savings.
Equally, our belief in sustainable development means balancing competitiveness and business acumen with quality, safety and the environment. With the goal of becoming a key player in green design and low-carbon construction we implement solutions combining environmental and economical performance for our customers.
Our commitment to Singapore and the region remains as strong as ever. From this vibrant city we aim to spread the name and reputation of Dragages and the Bouygues Construction Group across the region for many years to come.

Use of PPVC construction method to increase site productivity and build the Woodlands Crescent Nursing Home in 15 months only
Increasing productivity in healthcare infrastructure development is key to Singapore. This is why in 2016 Dragages Singapore has been awarded with the construction of the Woodlands Crescent Nursing Home using Pre-finished Pre-fabricated Volumetric Construction (PPVC) in order to increase productivity on site and reduce construction programme to 15 months.
This pilot project for MOH is a healthcare facility of about 9,000sqm GFA featuring nine storeys of open plan space to accommodate 243 beds catering to geriatric and dementia patients requiring assisted living facilities. Thanks to our understanding of this type of facility and our technical expertise we are able to face the challenge and deliver a project on time, on budget and most importantly at the right quality.
Given the important volume of healthcare projects planned in Singapore, we can play a part by deploying our knowledge and our new construction technologies which will, in the end, help Singapore to build better and faster in a sustainable manner.
