SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The requirement for Construction Quality Assessment System (CONQUAS) Scheme, a standard assessment framework for benchmarking workmanship quality, has been imposed through a new licence condition effective Nov 18.
The new licence condition applies for developers with no CONQUAS track record for private residential development in the past three years; or at least one private residential development in the past three years with CONQUAS score below the threshold score; or at least one private residential development in the past three years with significant number of major defects.
To assess whether the developer will be subject to the CONQUAS requirement, the CONQUAS track record and quality of private residential development which involved the developer, any of its shareholders, and related corporation of the shareholders will be considered, says URA.
Launched in 1989, CONQUAS is an existing requirement for new building projects constructed on Government Land Sales (GLS) sites and public sector building projects with contract value above $5 million.
