OVERVIEW & HISTORY

Begin with an “End in Mind”, the seed for Gates PCM Construction LTD was planted in 1983 in the form of a company named Denwick Piling & Civil Engineering Pte Ltd, focusing on rail projects, pilings & civil works. Denwick extended its footprint to Malaysia and Srilanka soon after its formation. As part of continuous improvement and expanding its wings, the company sharpened its focus on rail projects and total manpower resource management. Denwick was rebranded as GATES PCM Construction LTD in 2000 to focus on railway projects.

There was no “finish line” for Gates. Gates further diversified its activities in civil engineering works and manpower resource management through their expertise gained in the past. Thus, today Gates Group comprises of following entities has travelled a long way to come to a position of strength.

  • Avemore Pte Ltd.
  • Denwick – Built Pte Ltd.
  • Spice King Pte Ltd.
  • Gates PCM NAkhoda Rail SdnBhd (Malaysia)
  • Siam Denwick Construction Ltd.

Since its inception, the company proved its efforts in diversification. As a result, in 1986, the company was awarded with an opportunity to provide skilled personnel for installation of track work for the first mass rapid viaduct line from Raffles place to Pasir Ris in Singapore. With this gained experience, another opportunity was presented itself in 1995 in the form of Woodlands viaduct line in Singapore. During the execution of the second leg of the MRT rail contract, Gates recognized the opportunity for a specialized track work and rail orientated infrastructure needs. Since then, Gates actively engaged in providing permanent labour for projects and in late 1998, it was awarded the sub-contract work for Singapore Metro Rail Network – The Northeast Line.
