A builder of landmarks

In recognition of the great strides he has helped his company make, Nanyang Technological University is proud to present Mr Lee Yong Miang,Von with the Nanyang Alumni Achievement Award.

Mr Lee is the Chairman and founder of the Expand Group of Companies, which provides services including civil engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering and construction. Expand has come a long way since its modest beginnings in 2000 when Mr Lee was one of a two-man team – as of July 2015, the Expand Group had 590 employees. Some of its landmark projects include the Supertrees and Energy Centre for the Gardens by the Bay, the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, and the Marina Bay Promenade.

Today, Expand has received accolades like the SME 500 award, Singapore 1,000 award and the Enterprise 50 award. The award-winning developer has also been recognised by the Building & Construction Authority (BCA) with the BCA Construction Excellence Award (Merit) in 2014 for the Arrival Clusters and Lion Grove Supertrees and the Energy Centre, the Green and Gracious Builder (Star) in 2014, and Best Value Added Productivity Award in 2011. In addition, the Lion Grove Supertrees and the Energy Centre also achieved the prestigious Green Mark Platinum Award. This year, the Supertree Grove was named one of the Top 5 Landmarks in Singapore in TripAdvisor Singapore’s Travellers’ Choice awards.

On a personal front, Mr Lee received The Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2008 from the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises and the Rotary Club of Singapore. Despite his success, he has never forgotten his NTU roots, most recently gifting S$1 million to start a new endowment – the Von Lee Yong Miang Bursary Fund – to benefit needy students. This was matched by the Singapore Government, bringing the total endowment to S$2.5 million.

In addition, he has made time to serve as a member of the Advisory Council on Community Relations in Defence (AACORD), a channel for the Ministry of Defence to seek the views of various stakeholder groups on defence matters, and as Chairman of the Kebun Baru Community Club Management Committee under Ang Mo Kio GRC.

新加坡标志性建筑背后重要推手

为表彰企业家李勇绵先生成功带领其集团在建筑工程领域取得巨大成就,南洋理工大学特此授予南洋校友成就奖。

李先生是扩展集团执行主席兼创始人,集团主要提供土木工程、电子工程和建筑工程服务。扩展集团创立于2000年,最初只有李先生和伙伴组成两人团队;随着公司规模不断壮大,截至2015年7月,集团已雇有590名雇员。新加坡多处具标志性的建筑皆为扩展集团的精心杰作,其中包括滨海湾花园内12座由钢铁制造的擎天大树、给整座滨海湾花园供应电力的能源中心、李光前自然历史博物馆,以及滨海湾海滨长廊。

扩展集团在商界的成就备受肯定,至今荣获的奖项包括:新加坡中小企业500强奖项、新加坡1000强企业,50家杰出企业奖。这家屡获殊荣的开发商还多次获得建设局颁发的表扬奖项。2014年,它凭滨海湾花园入口区、擎天大树以及能源中心等项目获颁建筑界最高荣誉建设局建筑卓越奖(优异奖),另外它还获得2014年环保与优雅建筑商奖(最高级别星级),以及2011年最佳增值生产力奖。擎天大树和能源中心这两个项目也获得了建设局的绿色建筑标志白金奖。除此以外,擎天大树还在全球知名旅游网站TripAdvisor“2016年新加坡旅客首选”评选活动中脱颖而出,获选为新加坡五大地标之一。

李先生成功将其集团发展成现有规模的这项卓越成就,让他在2008年获得中小型企业协会和新加坡扶轮社联合颁发的“新加坡企业家奖”。李先生在成功创业后也不忘回报母校,最近捐出100万元给南大设立李勇绵助学基金,旨在帮助面对经济困难的在籍学生提供补助。这笔捐款获得新加坡政府一元对一元的资助,使这笔助学基金的款额达到250万元。

尽管集团业务繁忙,他仍尽力抽出时间为社区服务。他除了受委出任国防社区联系咨询委员会,协助国防部向相关利益关系的群体收集防务方面的意见,同时也担任宏茂桥集选区内哥本峇鲁民众俱乐部管理委员会主席。
