In a statement dated Thursday, Oct 28, the boutique developer's group managing director NK Tong said that while the Conquas assessment was not mandatory, BKP believed its projects should undergo the exercise as quality workmanship was an important element in property development due to its ability to enhance real estate values.
Meanwhile, Singapore's Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Phillip Wong said he was impressed by the project's unique concept.
"I have not seen such a development concept before in Singapore,” he added.
Tong said the group had sent site supervisors, contractors and consultants for Conquas training every year for familiarise them with the quality aspects of real estate development.
"In addition, we have also implemented the Conquas reward scheme to reward or penalise our contractors,” he added.
As part of their ongoing special bonus system to promote quality workmanship that was introduced in 2000, BKP had awarded over RM300,000 this year to its contractors for achieving high-quality standards required for Viva Tower, which is the first phase of Verve Suites.
Conquas, which was introduced by the BCA in 1998, is used regionally as a standardised assessment system to measure workmanship quality in completed buildings.
