Project 3M was completed in 3 Phases and spent across 2 buildings with total cost of S$3million.
This project was overly complex & time consuming involving new work benches, removal & replacement of 100 old workstations and construction of new meeting rooms over 2 weekends: and renovations of 2 new floor at Springleaf tower.
Richard Koh did an excellent job and the project was completed on schedule with minimum disruption, no safety issues and best of all 15% below budget. Great teamwork was displayed. All reports, documentation and submissions to the relevant authorities were precise, accurate and in order.
We were able to leave everything in the capable hands of Richard whom we found to be very professional. He worked with pride. He managed unexpected setbacks very well and kept to the project schedule. He is able to think-out-of the box and come up with solutions and ideas which are always refreshing. What Richard promises, he delivers. I have high regard for Richard and would recommend him without hesitation.
