A humanized construction site experience

OCBC Bank building

This is my office building at the heart of Singapore.

One day, this “gray thing” was installed for public safety while a dynamic lighting system was being installed for the façade of the company building.

While the structure was set-up, it began to “wear” some artwork – a guy dancing Gangnam-style, a little girl looking through a hole, a businessman carrying noodles.

The artwork wasn’t stagnant, it changed with the seasons too!

Around Christmas, the characters wore winter hats with Santa making his customary appearance climbing up a ladder. During Chinese New Year, giant red packets were hung all over the place and an artwork ATM had the sign “Huat-ah!” (meaning good luck in Singapore).

Just yesterday, I realised that the structure was being dismantled. And there it was – a sign-off message purposely made to look like the Looney Tunes (think Porky Pig) goodbye at the end of all its cartoons.

“That’s all folks…. Ya’ later”

What a cool way of finishing off the construction! That really brought me smile.

Thank you Art, for creating a humanised construction site experience over the last 6 months when it could have easily been a dull and annoying one.

Art tells us stories.
Art brings us a smile.
Art indeed creates an experience design.

  1. Thanks for your intriguing article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally brought on by the inhalation of materials from asbestos, which is a carcinogenic material.
    Its commonly found among staff in the construction industry
    that have long contact with asbestos. It can be caused by residing in
    asbestos covered buildings for long periods of time, Family
    genes plays an important role, and some folks are more vulnerable for the risk than others.
