    NEW CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGIES SET TRENDS FOR YANGON’S $2.2 BILLION URBAN DEVELOPMENT PLAN  
       
    As Myanmar’s economy improves and its industry develops rapidly, the country’s regional governments have also doubled their efforts to transform major population centres into smart cities. Leading the charge is Yangon, which has introduced 41 development projects under its Yangon Development Master Plan, worth some $2.2 billion in total.  
       
     
       
    One of their projects is the Yuzana Project, part of a larger plan to develop the Dagon Seikkan Township into a 100-acre smart district by providing affordable housing. In line with developing a smart city, advanced construction methods have also been considered and tested. A good example of this approach, as reported by Myanmar Times on 5 April, was that local real estate developer Shwe Taung Group, in partnership with Singapore-listed construction firm Tiong Seng Holdings, announced the completion of seven five-storey apartment blocks in the prior week.

Six apartment blocks were built with Tiong Seng’s semi-precast methods, while the seventh utilised their Prefabricated Pre-finished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) technologies. The latter’s construction took only three months, as opposed to conventional construction methods that would normally require six months or more, effectively reducing construction time by 40 per cent.

For Shwe Taung CEO U Aung Zaw Naing, it has been important for the company to embrace the latest construction technologies in order to reduce wastage and prevent unnecessary costs while ensuring that its developments are safe, sustainable and affordable for residents. He also believes that as Shwe Taung becomes more familiar with these new technologies, they can complete their projects much faster and also construct higher buildings with greater safety, especially since Yangon is located in an earthquake-prone area.

Shwe Taung is also eyeing new infrastructure projects at Dagon Seikkan. U Aung Zaw Naing said this about the matter, “We are looking to work with the housing board and Ministry of Construction to improve the infrastructure of Dagon Seikkan, not just building new apartments, and transform the district into a smart city.”

With the slew of projects in the pipeline for Yangon and other regions, there is a great demand for construction companies to invest in Myanmar. This opens up plenty of great business opportunities, and MYANBUILD – Myanmar’s No.1 International Building & Construction Industry Show intends to provide the perfect business-to-business platform for realising those opportunities.

Organised by AMB Tarsus Events Group, one of the leading trade show organisers in Asia, MYANBUILD 2018 will capitalise on Myanmar’s upstream construction sector, which looks set to become a major growth driver of Myanmar’s economy. The expo will be held at the MEP Mindama in Yangon from 16 to 18 November later this year. It also aims to provide an arena for the suppliers of building & construction equipment, materials and technology to meet key decision makers of the sector including developers, architects, M&E consultants and engineers, designers, contractors, distributors and retailers.  With hundreds of international brands from 18 countries expected to participate, and several thousand visitors expected in attendance, this is sure to be the biggest building, construction and M&E show in Myanmar.

Take action today and reserve your ideal booth location at MYANBUILD 2018 to build your business in Myanmar! For more information, kindly contact Ms Ei (ei@ambtarsus.com) or Mr Darren Siow (darren@ambtarsus.com).
