Rethinking the Future
Embracing new ideas on how HDB towns and homes could be better planned, designed and built has taken HDB into once-uncharted domains as it rethinks approaches for the future.
Amidst new challenges and opportunities, the journey of housing a nation continues to be reinterpreted. HDB has embarked on several research collaborations to better plan, design and build towns and homes, and craft housing provisions to cater to changing demographics and lifestyle shifts.
At the International Housing Forum 2017, partnerships with industry experts were forged to pursue interests in 2 vital areas: data-driven geo-sociographic studies to improve liveability of HDB towns, and test-bedding of a smart and integrated construction system to enhance safety and productivity.
The close partnership with the industry to take pre-emptive lead will not only bring HDB towards realising practical goals, but also fulfil a stronger promise of better homes in the future.
