Deployment requirements

There are 4 broad classes of projects. They are new building works, addition and alteration works, civil engineering works (general) and civil engineering works (MRT station).

With the new minimum R1 proportion requirement at the firm-level to be implemented in 2017, BCA will phase out the project-level CoreTrade deployment requirement for Tradesmen, and focus on building up key construction personnel at the Foremen and Supervisory levels with effect from 01 January 2015. Once implemented, all new and on-going CoreTrade projects will not be required to comply with the deployment requirements for the category of Tradesmen. Construction firms will still need to comply with the deployment requirements of Trade Foremen and Supervisors.

(1) New Building Works, (2) Addition and Alteration Works, and (3) Civil Engineering Works (MRT Station)

New Building Works, Addition and Alteration Works and Civil Engineering Works at MRT stations, will generally require construction foremen and construction supervisors in structural, architectural and mechanical & electrical trades.

The table below shows the deployment requirements for (1) New Building Works, (2) Addition and Alteration Works and (3) Civil Engineering Works (MRT Station)
