Every seven years, HDB blocks undergo Repairs & Redecoration (R&R) works to give the estate a fresh new look. Chua Chu Kang Town Council (CCKTC) works closely with the Residents’ Committees (RC) and paint specialists to propose at least three colour schemes for R&R works to our residents.
Repairs & Redecoration (R&R) works at Block 1 to 7 Teck Whye Lane commenced in end July 2017 and was completed by end April 2018. The R&R works included giving the estate a fresh new look by the Piet Mondrian inspired façade and Vincent Van Gogh inspired art murals at the void decks. 75% of the residents selected the Piet Mondrian and Vincent Van Gogh inspired colour scheme while the two other colour schemes received 12% and 13% of the votes, respectively.
Colour scheme surveys were distributed to the residents of Block 1 to 7 Teck Whye Lane while artist impressions and descriptions of the three proposed colour schemes were put up on the Town Council Noticeboard at each block. Residents’ Committee (RC) members and Chua Chu Kang Town Council (CCKTC) officers also visited residents to encourage them to vote for their preferred colour scheme. Residents submitted their votes between 09 June to 30 June 2017.
General Manager of CCKTC, Mr Clarence Tan expressed that feedback on the precinct’s new look has been generally positive thus far and said that, “We are always looking at ways to bring new vibrancy into our estates and as such, had decided to explore the possibility of implementing a different but distinctive colour scheme for our R&R works. Officers from CCKTC, RC and the paint specialists worked together to think outside the box to provide this unique colour scheme as an option and had hoped that residents would be receptive to the idea. We are delighted that this colour scheme has been well received by our residents and will definitely continue to explore new themes, where possible for our R&R works, including art-inspired colour schemes.”
