Established in 1967, Swee Sendirian Berhad (part of the Goldentree Group of Companies) is one of the oldest civil engineering construction companies in Brunei. Swee also contributes to the development of the Sultanate of Brunei by supplying high quality building materials such as ready-mixed concrete, asphaltic concrete, and aggregates.
Following the registration with Public Works Department as Class VI License contractor, Swee has a long and proven track record of professionalism, expertise, accountability and dependability in its taking on, carrying out and completion of the many national projects that it had undertaken over the years.
Swee’s first project from the Government of Brunei was the Cable Duct Laying Scheme from 1969 to 1970, which valued at half a million dollars. Swee’s second project from the Government of Brunei was the Water Reticulation Scheme in 1971. Swee completed this project ahead of schedule and resolved the water shortage problems in the rural areas. Due to this, Swee was rewarded with incentive bonus from the client.
Swee was given an important project to resolve the critical water supply shortage issue at Sungai Layong. The Sungai Tutong Scheme Project was awarded to Swee in 2 phases from 1972 – Oct 1977(valued at $20.1 million). Prior to the completion to this project, the water supply was insufficient for the residents (During the prolonged dry weather conditions, the water supply at Sungai Layong could only last for 1 hour in every 2 days). Our success in completing this project ahead of time, has earned us an incentive reward from the client.
Over the 50 over years in Brunei, Swee completed 195 projects which valued at over 2.5 billion dollars.
Swee is a pioneer in the construction industry in Brunei, with many projects being the first of its kind in Brunei Darussalam, for example, to name a few:-
Swee was the main contractor for the Superstructural Contract of Brunei National Stadium (Phase 2) Jan 1981 – Jul 1983 (valued at $63 million). Swee completed this project ahead of schedule and was again rewarded with bonus incentives. It officially opened on 23 Sept 1983. The date was chosen to commemorate HM Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien’s (then HRH Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan) 70th Birthday. The Stadium was then used to celebrate Brunei Independence Day on 23 Feb 1984. The Stadium also witnessed Brunei hosting its first ever hosting of the 20th SEA Games in 1999.
