  • "I recently completed a 2 months internship with Obayashi where I acquired hands on experiences in coming up with technical sketches and calculations. I was also involved in tender preliminaries. The experiences acquired helped translated theoretical concepts into reality. I have also learnt much from my mentor Patrick. I look forward to having a full 6 months internship at Obayashi, not to mention a career with Obayashi when I graduate."

  • "I joined Obayashi in October 1995, and have been with the company for over 20 years. I am grateful that the management has provided me with many career advancement opportunities. I rose through the ranks from an M&E supervisor to Manager now. I grew from a team member to a team leader. I was given many opportunities to learn new knowledge and skills through internal and external training courses. Along the way, I was also guided by various senior colleagues.

    I really appreciate and am thankful for the support given. I look forward to many more good years with the company. "

  • "It has been an amazing journey of tremendous growth for my 15 years of service with Obayashi. I was given vast exposure and had accumulated invaluable knowledge in various projects assignments such as CREATE @ NUS campus, Halliburton Phases 1 & 2 and my current iconic project DUO @ Ophir.

    In Obayashi, colleagues from all levels are always ready to share experiences and support each other. This sharing also promotes and cultivates a platform for team work.

    I would like to sincerely thank the management for giving me an opportunity to attend the "Learn beyond Singapore Programme" by sending me to Obayashi Tokyo Head Office; TRT (Technical Research Institute) techno station and a visit to Azabudai 3 Chome condominium project in Japan in 2013. The visit was an eye opening on the advance construction technologies for implementation in local projects.

    I firmly believe the sky is the limit to excel in Obayashi."

  • "As a Building engineer at Corporate Office, my main responsibility is to assist the Building section in the tender process. I work alongside colleagues who provided mentorship and opportunities for me to learn. Through various company organised events, I get to know more about them and develop a stronger bond with them. The training courses I've attended have been beneficial so as to ensure that I'm kept abreast of current regulations and practices. Obayashi has provided a challenging and fulfilling work environment where I believe my professional and personal development are achievable."
