With a history that can be traced back to 1972, TA Corporation is an established property and construction group, with a growing suite of businesses in distribution as well as the provision of workers training and accommodation in Singapore and across the region, including Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, China, and Myanmar.
REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT
Backed by its strong competencies in the construction business since the 1970s and in-depth experience in working with established real estate developers, the Group has established a reputation as a developer of quality well-located residential developments, targeting the middle to upper middle markets since more than 15 years ago. Some of its completed residential developments in Singapore include Leonie Hill Residences, The Citrine, Parc Seabreeze, Auralis, Coralis, Starlight Suites, Gambir Ridge, The Cristallo, The Skywoods, Terra Villas and Ascent@456, as well as a serviced apartment, 12 on Shan.
The Group has also successfully ventured overseas through joint ventures in property development projects in China, Thailand, and Cambodia. Its regional portfolio includes distinctive mixed-use developments such as De Iyara, De Iyara Share and De Iyara Grande in Thailand, and The Gateway – an iconic twin tower mixed-use development in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
In September 2019, the Group’s 20%-owned associate FSKH Development Pte. Ltd., launched its 265-unit 99-year leasehold residential development – The Antares on Mattar Road.
TA Corporation’s main construction business is principally undertaken through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tiong Aik Construction Pte Ltd, which has a track record of more than 40 years in Singapore. Over the years, the Group has built a solid reputation as a reliable building contractor with the ability to undertake a wide spectrum of projects for both public and private sector clients. Most of its past and existing customers are reputable names, including government bodies such as the URA, HDB and JTC Corporation and established real estate developers such as Allgreen Properties Limited, The Ascott Limited (Fka: The Ascott Group Limited), Keppel Land Realty Pte Ltd, Wheelock Properties (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (Fka: Wheelock Properties (S’pore) Ltd), Wing Tai Holdings Limited, Keppel Corporation Limited, German European School Singapore as well as Logan Property (Singapore) Company Pte. Limited.
Leveraging on the property and construction business demand for pre-cast components to enhance productivity, the Group’s pre-cast concrete components factory in Johor, Malaysia started operations in the fourth quarter of 2015. Our customers for pre-cast components include Samsung C & T Corporations, Samsung-Koh Brothers Joint Venture, LC & T Builder (1971) Pte Ltd, Chuan Lim Construction Pte Ltd, Woh Hup (Private) Ltd, China Communications Construction Company, Wee Hur Construction Pte Ltd, Lian Beng Construction (1988) Pte Ltd, Yee Hong Pte Ltd and Lian Ho Lee Construction Pte Ltd who are engaged in the construction business in the residential, commercial, industrial and infrastructure segments in Singapore and Malaysia.
Coupled with the existing precast component manufacturing capabilities, this added PPVC System competency will enable the Group to further enhance its productivity in construction – both for its own property development and construction projects as well as to fulfill the growing demand for solutions to improve labour productivity and operational efficiency in the construction industry.
The Group is also involved in the design, installation and maintenance of Air-Conditioning & Mechanical Ventilation (“ACMV”) systems in Singapore and Cambodia.
