An Established Brand Name in Engineering. Formed in 1912, United Engineers Limited (“the Group”) is one of Singapore’s pioneer, and first to be listed, companies. With its rich engineering heritage, the Group has played an integral role in the physical and economic transformation of Singapore.
Building upon its early engineering roots, the Group has today solidified its core strengths in Engineering, Construction and Integrated Property Services – forming end-to-end capabilities from Design & Build to Manage & Operate, for a wide range of projects from property development to environmental engineering projects.
The foundational role played by the Group in Singapore’s post-war rebuilding and early urbanisation is still visible in many parts of Singapore, in the form of notable landmarks including the former Supreme Court, Shangri-la Hotel, Jurong Shipyard, British High Commission, OCBC Centre, Victoria Memorial Hall, Singapore Swimming Club Clubhouse, Cavenagh Bridge and St James Power Station.
In the new millennium, the Group has also built several high-quality condominiums including Kovan Melody, The Calrose and Visioncrest Residence, as well as other landmarks like the University Cultural Centre, Gallery Hotel, Raffles Town Club, Orchid Country Club and Boon Lay MRT Extension.
Due to the key role played by the Group in the early development of Singapore, the Singapore Heritage Board has marked UE Square, the Group’s flagship building, a historic site in 2002. The Group has also been recognised as the 11th oldest member in the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce.
From blueprint to Building Management, United Engineers Limited, as the name suggests, is an engineering company at heart. Amidst the vast playing field of engineering, the Group today specialises in property and environmental-related engineering. What distinguishes the Group from the market competition is its end-to-end capabilities spanning Design and Build to Manage & Operate – essentially overseeing a project from blueprint, to construction, to asset management and property management when it is eventually built. As such, the Group is adept at undertaking large-scale Build-Operate-Transfer; Public-Private-Partnership; Design-Build-Operate typed projects – in the forms of water plants to commercial buildings.
