About Us

Established in 1977, W Y has served the construction industry for over 40 years, and completed over 300 construction and infrastructure projects that shape Singapore’s landscape.

Starting as a structural steel fabricator, the business grew when some of our larger clients expanded, taking W Y with them as a trusted sub-contractor. Over the next decades, our client base developed due to the recognition of our ability to handle large projects. In 1993, W Y was incorporated as a legal entity and our business activities expanded to include general building works. Today, we provide a vital service to the construction industry in the fields of general building and structural steel works, with a large loyal client base founded on our reputation for quick turnarounds on high pressure programs.

Delivering value at competitive price whilst not compromising quality is our mission. We strive to reduce lead times by adopting better scheduling and

production control habits. With over 200 staff in dedicated departments, our team members undergo continual training to ensure that the services and solutions that we provide our client are of the industry’s highest quality. W Y operates and manages a fully integrated Quality, Environment, Health and Safety (QEHS) management system at our head office and project sites. We seek to achieve operational transparency and excellence across service quality, operational efficiency, environmental performance and workplace health and safety.
Today, W Y is a BCA registered A2 General Builder, Structural Steel Specialist Builder and an accredited S1 Structural Steel Fabricator.

Organisation Structure

A culture of quality is established by continuously seeking the highest level of customer satisfaction and getting it right the first time.

People always query my passion for steel, a rigid and dull material. But beyond its unappealing surface, steel is flexible, bends without cracking and retains its properties despite rounds of recycling. It models and inspires strength and resilience into me. I derive a great sense of achievement when I find ways to bend and form them, and this is made possible with my commitment to perform and deliver the exceptional.

— Founder, Lim Joo Suan
