The history of Chip Eng Seng Group goes all the way back to the 1960s, when its founder, Mr Lim Tiam Seng started the business as a building subcontractor for conventional landed properties. With competitive pricing and quality work, the business grew and the company began taking on the role of a main contractor. In 1982, the company won its first Singapore Housing and Development Board (HDB) project as a main contractor. With that, the company continued to establish its position in HDB public housing construction.
In the 1990s, the Group diversified into property investment and development of residential, commercial and industrial properties.
Today, Chip Eng Seng is one of Singapore’s leading construction and property group with businesses spanning across construction, property development and property investment. In light of the Group’s successful growth of its existing business, the Group entered into a collaboration with Repton International Schools Ltd. CESR and Repton International intend to establish a chain of premium international kindergartens in certain countries within the Asia Pacific region under the “Repton School” brand name. CESR and Repton International aim to establish the first Repton-brand kindergarten in Singapore by early 2019.
