This project comprises of Lift Upgrading Programme (LUP) to various HDB estates (Ang Mo Kio Ave 3/5/10 & Yishun St 81) and Home Improvement Programme (HIP) to HDB flats in Ang Mo Kio Ave 1.
LUP allows all residents to enjoy direct lift access to their unit entrances after the completion of the lift upgrading programme. Steel lift shafts construction were being adopted for this project instead of conventional precast reinforced concrete construction.
As a result of adopting steel shaft designs, the erection time for the lift shafts is made relatively faster. This methodology also reduces the inconvenience arising from construction activities while enhancing quality of work.
HIP was introduced in response to the recommendations for greater flexibility in providing flat improvement works and precinct facilities. HIP helps lessees deal with common maintenance problems in ageing flats, such as spalling concrete and ceiling leaks, in a systematic and comprehensive manner. It also offers lessees a choice on the works they want to be included in the upgrading of their flats. Flats built up to 1986 which have not undergone the Main Upgrading Programme are eligible for HIP.
