Temasek Polytechnic: Campus Masterplan Development

Faithful+Gould has a long term partnership with Temasek Polytechnic. Since 2001, we have been providing cost management and contractual expertise on a series of construction and refurbishment projects at the polytechnic.

In 2009, the campus embarked on an overall expansion plan and we were brought on board to help transform the campus masterplan development into reality – shaping the way the polytechnic constructs its buildings, road layouts, landscaping and green spaces.

Faithful+Gould’s involvement has been steadfast from initial concept and master-planning, all the way through to construction.
