PEB Innovative Engineer Award 2021

PEB presented the biennial Innovative PE award which awards PEs who exemplified professionalism through innovativeness and/or entrepreneurship in the built environment industry.

Er. Chen Yuefeng has pioneered the use of the Reinforced Concrete Ring Strutting system for semi-top down Earth Retaining Stabilising Structures (ERSS) in Singapore since 2003. This innovative engineering design solution significantly reduces the use of construction materials, improves productivity, and generates time and cost savings.

Er. Chong Chin Hin has spearheaded the Direct Discharge Platform (DDP) method of collection and disposal of land-based excavated materials. This innovative method for handling excavated materials improves productivity and safety.
