Singapore Business Review - - ENGINEERING SURVEY -

Sin­ga­pore Busi­ness Re­view reached out to the top en­gi­neer­ing firms in the city and we asked them to put for­ward names of the up and com­ing tal­ents in the en­gi­neer­ing sec­tor. They are ranked ac­cord­ing to age.

1 Lam Siew Ping, 29, Rank­ine & Hill

Lam’s en­gi­neer­ing phi­los­o­phy is rooted in the be­lief that it is im­por­tant to fully un­der­stand ev­ery devel­op­ment’s re­quire­ments from both the ar­chi­tec­tural and M&E per­spec­tives to tailor the best so­lu­tions and at­mos­phere. Her award win­ning port­fokio in­clude one of Sin­ga­pore’s most iconic Catholic struc­tures, the Church of St. Alphon­sus or the Novena Church, the highly awarded 7-storey mixed-use in­sti­tu­tional pro­ject Heart­beat@bedok, and the Wisma Gey­lang Serai, de­signed to house var­i­ous gov­ern­ment agen­cies whilst sport­ing a dis­tinct lo­cal char­ac­ter, which won the Green Mark Plat­inum 2017 award.

2 Kelvin Chen, 34, Aure­con Sin­ga­pore

Chen is a go-get­ter in the world of en­gi­neer­ing in Sin­ga­pore, hav­ing been awarded by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Con­sult­ing En­gi­neers Sin­ga­pore (ACES) as 2017’s Young Con­sult­ing En­gi­neer of the Year in the me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing cat­e­gory. Since join­ing Aure­con, he has de­liv­ered projects for a va­ri­ety of clients in­clud­ing Ama­zon, Bose, Google, John­son & John­son, Lloyd’s of Lon­don, Nanyang Tech­no­log­i­cal Univer­sity, and Re­sorts World Sen­tosa. He also worked on projects in In­done­sia, Myan­mar, Viet­nam, and New Zealand.

3 Lok Wai Loon, 35, Sur­bana Jurong

Lok brings with him over a decade of pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence as a struc­tural and civil en­gi­neer, with re­mark­able spe­cial­i­sa­tion in pre­cast de­sign. His pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ence cov­ers de­sign in res­i­den­tial hous­ing projects in Sin­ga­pore in­clud­ing the struc­tural de­sign and con­struc­tion of pub­lic hous­ing devel­op­ment such as Bukit Merah RC40, Bukit Merah

53, and Daw­son C3. In ad­di­tion to high-rise build­ings, he is also pro­fi­cient in de­sign­ing-tem­po­rary earth re­tain­ing struc­tures and steel struc­ture.

4 Aaron Foong, 37, Sur­bana Jurong

Foong firmly be­lieves that a good struc­tural de­sign goes hand in hand with good ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign. This phi­los­o­phy is ev­i­dent in The Scotts Tower (TST) pro­ject, show­cas­ing a unique en­gi­neer­ing feat—the trans­fer of 30 floors of su­per­struc­ture above the frame onto four slant­ing mega columns. He is cur­rently spear­head­ing the first phase of the new Sin­ga­pore Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal cam­pus pro­ject.

5 Lim Boon Keong, 38, DSCO

Lim has al­most 10 years of ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt for DSCO Group, fo­cussed on elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing de­sign for data cen­tres. He is cur­rently the pro­ject lead for a num­ber of ma­jor projects in Sin­ga­pore and re­gion­ally, data cen­tre con­struc­tion projects for Sing­tel and Dig­i­tal Realty Trust, which were awarded with BCA Green

Mark for Data Cen­tres Plat­inum. He also com­pleted projects with NCS, Agency for Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy and Re­search (A*STAR), VISA World­wide, ICAP and Clar­i­den Leu.

6 Ooi Poh Hai, 38, Sur­bana Jurong

Ooi’s ca­reer devel­op­ment in­volves en­gage­ments with en­gi­neer­ing con­sul­tancy firm of Mein­hardt and Mott Mac­don­alds which had seen him com­plete the geotech­ni­cal de­sign for chal­leng­ing un­der­ground ex­ca­va­tion projects and foun­da­tion sys­tems for high rise build­ings in dif­fi­cult ground con­di­tions, such as the Re­flec­tion @ Kep­pel Bay, OUE Bayfront, One Shen­ton Way amongst oth­ers.

7 Zhang Yaodong, 40, Sur­bana Jurong

Zhang’s ex­per­tise range from struc­tural and geotech­ni­cal en­gi­neer­ing, to coastal devel­op­ment and recla­ma­tion. Some of the projects he man­aged in­clude the mega pro­ject of Tuas Ter­mi­nal Phase 1. He is also the su­per­vi­sion QP for some land recla­ma­tion projects such as the Jurong Is­land West­ward Ex­ten­sion and Tuas Western Coast.
