QUICK BUILD DORMITORIES READY TO HOUSE MIGRANT WORKERS

As part of efforts by the Government to improve living standards in migrant worker housing, a total of 8,000 migrant workers will be housed in seven new Quick Build Dormitories (QBDs).

The newly built dormitories will pilot some new standards to make dormitory living more resilient to public health risks like COVID-19.

The latest facilities, which are located at Kranji, Admiralty and Choa Chu Kang, began operations about a month ago.

Eight more QBDs will be ready by the second half of next year, bringing the total capacity to 25,000, according to the National Development Ministry.
