Lendlease's Vision is to Create Better Places

To call an urban environment a “Place”, something more than a mere space, implies the successful creation of an emotional attachment between a created environment and its users. Our interpretation of a “Place” involves the art of creating environments where people consciously choose to dwell, by being sensitive to a community’s needs and the elements that draw its members to one urban location over another.

“Placemaking” views the building of successful and activated public spaces as the starting block for designing a space. It refers to the adoption of a people-centric approach in designing urban spaces and focuses on creating engaging and memorable user experiences. Effective place design requires active engagement with partners who provide input as co-creators and is informed by an early understanding of their vision and aspirations for the urban space that they will inhabit. That very placemaking thought steered the team to be creating a positive and sustainable outcome for the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s broader Paya Lebar Central Masterplan; underscore the site’s significance as a new sub-regional commercial hub for Singapore; and showcase an intimate understanding of the community we are creating a place for.

  • Access Technology


    Office workers, visitors and shoppers at PLQ, as well as residents at Park Place Residences, can enjoy convenience at their fingertips, anywhere they go through these apps:

    • PLQ Workplace app for office users
    • Lendlease Plus app for shoppers
    • Park Place Residences at PLQ app for residents.


    Enhancing security and control of site access to workers with appropriate training and competencies while also managing risk of fatigue by work hours clocked by the workers.



    A safety mobile app facilitates and encourages employees to record safety observations on site. It offers real time information through a dashboard, allowing the site management to track the ratio of supervisors to workers, to ensure adequate frontline supervision.

  • Building Information Modelling (BIM)

    Building Information Modelling (BIM)

    Using 3D models to generate documents, extract quantifiable data and coordinate between disciplines during the design and construction phases. Mobile devices allow us to bring BIM technology directly onto the field and enables us to verify as-built construction quality.

  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and Photogrammetry

    Drone flights and 360 degree cameras enables virtual site walks to monitor site safety and progress. Utilising innovative technologies and processes to mitigate risk, create cost and schedule certainty.

  • Open Building System Integration (OBSI)

    Smart Building Controls

    PLQ’s early adoption of Kaer to leverage on smart building technologies to minimise waste of resources and optimise efficiency. Artificial Intelligence are used to analyse data and make system parameter changes automatically. It enables optimum levels of comfort and efficiency for building occupants.
