We Deliver Consistent, Reliable & Predictable Result

1. Telecom Pipeline

Laying the Pipeline with precision amounts to the constructing the most crucial backbone of any Telecom Infrastructure project. This task requires both expertise and efficiency since time is of essence in such projects.

At Soon Yong, we have a long history of performing this kind of work with precision since our inception. Till date, we have successfully laid down 500,000 kilometres of telecom pipeline.


2. Underground Cable Work

Telecommunication cables need to be carried across different terrains in a safe manner. Also, at times they need to be separated from electrical cables. Cable bridges are the most modern and sheltered means to accomplish this. We have the know-how to build cross-over ‘cable bridges’ for our Telecom clients.

Our teams initiate a site inspection and study of the terrain through which the cable bridge needs to be laid. No two situations are alike and, therefore, we need to customise the cable bridge design that not only looks good but also delivers excellent capacity and performance when carrying heavy cable load.


We built the backbone of Singapore’s world-renowned telecom structure.

3. Civil Works

We assist Singapore’s telecom companies, civil contractors and real estate developers with our expert excavation services such as

Topsoil excavation
Earth excavation
Rock excavation
Muck excavation – this usually contains excess water and unsuitable soil
We follow a process that includes site survey, site preparation, grading, trenching and many other soil-specific tasks. We have access to sophisticated equipment and machinery required to carry our various types of excavation tasks. Each excavation job is inherently different and requires different types of expertise and project management skills. At Soon Yong, we have vast experience in responding to challenging excavation situations.


4. Consulting

In our team, we have a presence of a large number of trained and experienced project managers. Our experience spanned over four decades has helped us to go through hundreds of iterations of processes for every specific operation.

This has matured our processes to a great extent. Our project managers know exactly what to do and what not to do in a variety of project scenarios. This gives our clients multiple advantages in terms of:

time and cost saving
quality assurance
planning their projects predictably
We ensure that every project is planned and documented which helps in effective contingency management.
