A supportive and encouraging environment for interns

Facilities & Estates Management

Yam Shien Hui, Assistant Manager
Facilities Planning & Enforcement Division

I used to think that industrial buildings are drab and isolated, but that changed when I learnt more about JTC's projects.

Over the years, JTC has transformed the ways industrial buildings and estates are designed and built. They are now smart, sustainable, and embody the work-live-play-learn concept.

There’s always more to our work than meets the eye.

For example, I was involved in site inspections to spot non-compliance practices. It’s not as easy as it looks! I encountered many challenges, but the encouragement and support from my supervisor and colleagues gave me the confidence to push through.

JTC is a master planner and developer, but our work is multi-faceted and wide-ranging.

You’ll get to experience that firsthand during your internship. When my fellow interns and I toured JTC's portfolio of developments, we learnt that each building has its own set of management requirements. It’s as if they have their own personalities — how interesting is that?

If I could be a superhero, I’m choosing Wonder Woman!  

She taught us that we can accomplish anything as long as we put our minds to it and stay true to ourselves.
