The Building and Construction Authority of Singapore (BCA) champions the development of an excellent built environment in Singapore.  BCA's mission is to shape a safe, high quality, sustainable and friendly built environment, as these are the four elements where BCA has significant influence.  In doing so, it aims to differentiate Singapore's built environment from those of other cities and contribute to a better quality of life for everyone in Singapore.  Hence its vision is to have "a future-ready built environment for Singapore”.  Together with its education and research arm, the BCA Academy, BCA works closely with its industry partners to develop skills and expertise that help shape a future-ready built environment for Singapore. 

The IBEW is an initiative under BuildSG, a national movement that encapsulates the spirit of working together to realise an advanced and integrated Built Environment sector with progressive and collaborative firms well-poised for local and global business opportunities, providing good jobs for Singaporeans. Every stakeholder, be it the trade associations and chambers, unions, or institutes of higher learning, can play an important role in realising these goals.
