In 1990s, through years of experience as a builder for big scale value projects, CESC began to make its inroads into design and build contracts. The involvement in these types of contracts was due to the urge to improve the productivity of construction industry. The industry believes that by engaging the contractors earlier in the design phase of a project, designs accepted are likely to be more buildable.

Building on the Group’s capabilities in project management and extensive knowledge in building buildability, the Group started to tender for design and build projects. Its efforts finally started to bear fruits when the Group secured and delivered a series of design and build contracts from both public and private developers.

Today, CES is one of the most established local builders with proven track records that developers and house owners can rely on.
