Who We Are

With over 1,300 companies membership from all our trade associations under our belt, we represent a strong commitment to enhance if not, improve the standards of fair-trading and commerce in our Singapore building and construction industry.

We also regards work safety as one of our main objective. We work very closely with Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHCOUNCIL) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM), to promote and enhance high standard of safety practices in our industry by conducting workshop and training activities. STAS also continuously provides legal workshops and other allied trainings to our members and industry players.

With the full membership of CIJC, STAS will help to bridge many important and critical sectors of the building and construction industry. We will also be able to facilitate the flow of ideas, as well as to co-ordinate the activities and directions set by CIJC and the members of STAS respectively.
