Abstract: The issue of construction productivity has been extensively discussed for years yet it is still an area of concern in Singapore. To improve construction productivity, the Government has implemented several initiatives such as encouraging companies to adopt productive technologies in their construction projects. One key productive technology identified is Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC). Despite having successful case studies and literature review on productivity improvement through PPVC and other various benefits, many construction firms in Singapore still have not employed PPVC in their projects. Therefore, this study will focus on examining the relationship between the adoption level of PPVC and productivity in the local construction industry. This study also aims to investigate if a lack of awareness of PPVC is the main factor to account for the low adoption rate of PPVC in Singapore or is the low adoption a result of other factors. In analysing how PPVC is utilised locally, three local case studies were examined to understand the PPVC applications and the resulting benefits and limitations. Additionally, a survey questionnaire was created to understand how the market awareness level of PPVC and the issues of PPVC that are faced by industry professionals. Last but not least, an institutional framework is proposed as a platform for recommendations to be suggested to increase PPVC adoption in the local context.
