SDB gets Asia-Pacific recognition for Singapore development


Known for its commitment to aesthetic perfection and value to purchasers, Malaysian boutique developer Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB) recently won the prestigious Asia-Pacific Property Awards 2019-2020 for

Best Residential Development in Singapore bestowed upon its Hijauan on Cavenagh project.

Hijauan on Cavenagh had also won the World Silver Winner of FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2018 in the Residential (Mid-Rise) category earlier this year.

Hijauan on Cavenagh comprises 41 residential units, located in the prime and green tree-lined Cavenagh Road. It is located adjacent to the grounds of the Istana, yet just a short walk away to the shopping belt of Orchard Road and the Somerset MRT station, via a pedestrian link bridge.

With its lush surroundings and subtle elements of art, each unit of Hijauan on Cavenagh has a hand-tooled copper door which opens up into spatially planned homes with balconies to bring in the refreshing outdoors.

Like all SDB’s projects, Hijauan on Cavenagh is based on the company’s “Brand Manifesto” outlining its values, principles and core beliefs to high standards.

Its “Manifesto for living well and responsibly” elaborates on principles the company believes in and puts into practice, namely, investing in: its products; community; quality; customers; its people; environmental sustainability; and peace of mind.

Group managing director Teh Lip Kim (in main pic with chairman Eddy Chieng) had previously said that everyone of SDB’s developments has been designed to enhance liveability.

The company’s community engagement can also be seen through its various corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities, some of which have won awards. For example, its Sungai Satu Programme in Batu Ferringhi (Penang) won a silver in the FIABCI Prix d’Excellence award – the highest industry recognition – for the rehabilitation of a polluted river.

SDB has also won four other FIABCI Malaysia Property Awards for its developments, namely Park Seven in Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) in 2009, 20trees in Melawati in 2012, Dedaun in Jalan Ampang in 2015 and By The Sea in Batu Ferringhi in 2016.
