Abstract: Design Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) forms the backbone of this dissertation. The purpose of this study is to discover the public responses towards this new public housing scheme and whether there is a need for DBSS flats. This dissertation is based on the pilot project located at the junction of Tampines Avenue 5 and 6. The visitors to the showflats were interviewed and valuable responses were gathered for subsequent univariate descriptive analysis and factor analysis. The study shows that potential buyers are likely to be newly marrieds and earning a handsome joint income. The difference between DBSS flats and normal public housing is that, DBSS flats are designed and built by private developer. This difference itself is an enticing fact to some visitors. Also, most visitors classify DBSS flats under a different class of public housing. These outcomes support the implementation of the scheme. The pilot project is very successful with 100% take up rate and in a way further justifies the materialization of the scheme. However, the success of it is dependable on many factors and distinctive features of DBSS flats do not seem to be the most appealing factor. This is because the study discovers that environment factor is the most critical factor which will lead to buyers' interests. In comparison, better housing quality and condominium-alike features as promised under DBSS are less influential in attracting buyers.
