Dormitory Awards 2017

The inaugural Dormitory Awards was held in 2017 to recognise FCD operators who went beyond compliance with regulatory standards, to enhance the well-being of their residents.

A total of 11 FCDs emerged winners after site assessments and interviews were conducted. The panel of judges was impressed with the winning FCD operators’ efforts in looking after the social and recreational needs of their residents, and providing a more comfortable living environment for them.

The awards were presented to the winners at a ceremony held at Suntec City Convention Centre. The ceremony was attended by 250 FCD operators and their foreign worker residents.
