About Chian Jin Building Contractor - Drywall & Roofing Specialist

Our Story

Chian Jin Building Contractor Pte Ltd began as a roofing specialist. It was established in Singapore in 1996 by Mr Ng Thiam Lai, a veteran roof installer for over 20 years. The drive to be the best roofing specialist in Singapore had motivated Ng to start his own company specialising in metal roofing installation and roof repair.

Ng’s skills as a master roof installer were honed during the 1970s and 80s’ construction boom in Singapore. His outstanding workmanship led him to be appointed as team leader overseeing the metal roofing installations at the Singapore Changi Airport Terminal One which was completed in 1981.

In 2004, eight years after founding Chian Jin Building Contractor, Ng set up Chian Jin Roofing System Pte Ltd to cement its reputation as a leading quality roofing specialist in Singapore. As the company grew, drywall partition and laminate flooring works were added to Chian Jin’s core business of metal roofing installation, roof repair and service.

In 2014, Chian Jin Plasterceil Pte Ltd was formed to meet the increasing demand for architectural interior works such as false ceilings, plaster ceilings and laminate flooring.

Over the years, Chian Jin Building Contractor has built a solid reputation as a reliable contractor that offers building professionals, developers, home and business property owners -  a one-stop solution for metal roofing installation, drywal partitioning and laminate flooring services


Management Team

At the helm of the company is our Founder and Chairman, Mr Ng Thiam Lai.

Managing the company’s day-to-day operations is Managing Director Ng Shi Yong who has worked his way up from site supervisor and project manager to project director over a span of eight years under the Chairman’s mentorship.
