I’ve been telling friends and peers that BCA is an excellent place to work, as it offers ample opportunities to those who seek challenges and professional development. Since I joined the organisation 4 years ago, I have tried my hands at policy as well as developmental work, and was also seconded to a private company as a Mechanical Engineer to better understand the issues faced on the ground. I am currently posted to a technical department to build up my technical expertise and to gain exposure to operational work. Going forward, I hope to continue contributing my knowledge and skillsets to further the built environment sector in Singapore.

Environmental sustainability issues, such as climate change and environmental degradation, have always been close to my heart. I’m glad and thankful to be part of the Green Mark team in BCA, which gave me ample opportunity to effect the green changes I hope to see in our built environment.

If you are unsure of the career choices available in the built environment sector, the BCA-Industry Built Environment Undergraduate Scholarship (now known as BCA-Industry iBuildSG Scholarship) may just be for you. The scholarship programme gave me a headstart in the built environment industry by providing me with career opportunities with established industry players. Through the scholarship, I had the privilege of joining Surbana Jurong, Asia's consultancy powerhouse for urbanisation, industrial and infrastructure developments. As a design consultant, I was involved in many exciting projects that shape the future urban landscape of Singapore and abroad. There is never a dull moment in the construction industry!

I am very grateful for the BCA-CPG Built Environment Undergraduate Scholarship (now known as BCA-CPG iBuildSG Scholarship) which has given me the opportunity to fulfil my dream of being a part of this home-grown firm. With the wide spectrum of building typologies that CPG has to offer, I have been lucky to be able to expand my personal project exposure by having hands on experience from designing schools to hospitals to residential blocks. I also feel content and happy knowing that I too, can also play a part in designing buildings that will eventually serve the larger community!
