New Permitted Hours for Demolition and Excavation Works


Press Release

The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) announces new permitted times for demolition and excavation works. These works may now only be carried out from Monday to Saturday between 7:30am and 4pm. No such works are permitted on Sundays and Public Holidays.

Demolition and excavation works were previously allowed from 8am until 2pm and from 4pm until 8pm. Now works must stop at 4pm in order to reduce inconvenience and noise pollution in the evening.

This change is a result of the BCA’s continuous work towards achieving a more sustainable building and construction industry within the context of the construction reform.
