In line with our continual commitment to providing quality accommodation in a safe and conducive living environment, we maintain a regular upgrading and expansion programme to meet the space and living needs of our residents. Providing high quality facilities ensures we stay competitive in this market and allow us to anticipate and meet our customers’ requirements in providing quality accommodation for their employees.
As part of our asset enhancement initiatives, the Group has recently undertaken upgrading works to increase Westlite Toh Guan’s bed capacity and expand its existing recreation and commercial facilities. These asset enhancement works were completed in January 2014, and the site now comprises an additional 18 storey block as well as the existing seven 5-storey blocks. Total bed capacity has increased to approximately 8,600 beds, complemented by indoor and outdoor recreational areas.
At Westlite Tuas, the Group’s largest workers accommodation facility with a bed capacity of 8,600 beds, we have continued to upgrade and enhance services provided. The sprawling accommodation facility offers a wide range of amenities, as well as the opportunity to host a variety of events and activities which are attended and enjoyed by all our residents.
Having recently upgraded the security and access system from biometric fingerprint to biometric facial scan technology, residents entering and leaving Westlite Tuas are able to do so more quickly, safely and conveniently. In a bid to promote social interaction among the residents, a piece of unused land, measuring 4,375 sq m, was converted into a garden, at the same time improving the overall landscape.
