Although the structural beams of the two-bedroom units of the pre-purchased HDB project Yishun Glen provided pre-drilled openings, the openings were located too high, causing the air-conditioning trunking to be bent upwards.

Some homeowners in Yishun Glen, a pre-purchased HDB flat on Yishun Ring Road, found that the interior of the new house was poorly designed and had problems installing air conditioners. The structural beams of the three-bedroom and above units are too narrow, too close to the door, and there is no pre-drilled opening for the air-conditioning duct to pass through; the opening of the two-bedroom unit is too high.

Owners of Yishun Glen, a pre-purchased HDB flat in Yishun, waited weeks to get their keys due to the delay in completion due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but some owners found that the interior of the house was poorly designed and had problems installing air conditioners.

位于义顺环路的Yishun Glen还没有完全竣工,只有第382A和382B座已建好,可让屋主先领取钥匙。记者星期五(8月5日)走访这个组屋区时了解到,二房式单位和三房式以上单位都面对不同的问题。

三房式以上单位的结构梁太窄,与房门太贴近,也没有预先钻好让冷气机线槽穿过的洞口。

二房式单位的结构梁虽然有预先钻好的洞口,但开口的位置太高,冷气机排水管要么得“往上走”,要么得从其他位置引入厕所。

根据建屋局条例,装修商不能随意在结构梁施工,如果要在结构梁钻洞,须先获得当局批准。

Zurianna (34, a marketer) said in an interview that her parents-in-law wanted to move into a two-bedroom senior apartment unit in Yishun Glen as soon as possible, so she didn't think much of it. Although I know that there seems to be some problems with the design, I don't know when the HDB will have a solution, so I decided to solve it myself.

"The air-conditioning company has done a round of inspection and said there is a way to install it, but I don't care. When it comes to installation, it is really a little troublesome. The opening on the structural beam is too high, the air-conditioning duct must be bent upward, and the drain pipe must be Extend it to the other side of the toilet door. It takes more time to install.”

Another two-bedroom unit surnamed Sales Executive Zeng (47) faced the same problem. In an interview, she said that the air conditioner drain pipe now has to extend down the outside of the toilet door before it can be introduced into the toilet, which is a bit ugly, but it can't be helped.

Li Anlun (52), who is in charge of the renovation of a three-bedroom unit in Block 381A, said in an interview that he has 10 years of experience in installing air-conditioning systems, and this is the first time he has encountered this problem. Some other pre-purchased HDB projects do not have this problem. , Structural beams are not the only way in the air conditioner trunking.

"Usually the builder would have pre-drilled openings in the structural beams to let the air conditioner ducts go through and eventually connect to the toilet drain. If the structural beams were on the door, there should have been at least four inches, but not here. Now Can only hope HDB will mark on the structural beams where we can work, or they will just drill the hole."

In another project of the same builder, the structural beams have to be drilled first for the air conditioner wiring grooves.
Some residents also pointed out in the Yishun Glen Facebook group that the pre-purchased HDB project Northshore Edge in Punggol and Yishun Glen were built by Teambuild, and they compared the four-bedroom units of the two projects. , the pattern is the same, but where the structural beams are pre-drilled with holes for the air conditioner ducts to pass through.

There is also a video in the group showing Yishun Glen's Building Services Centre staff advising residents who need to install "go up" drains to install water pumps. This additional cost is about 200 yuan to 300 yuan, which must be borne by the residents themselves.

The councillor in charge of the district, Wong Kwok-kwong, said in an interview that some residents had reported the matter to him, and he had approached the HDB, hoping they would provide a solution as soon as possible. He also posted on Facebook that he had visited the HDB area twice with HDB staff and had informed National Development Minister Li Zhisheng.

HDB: Smaller air-conditioning trunking can be installed in openings built according to industry standards

In response to Lianhe Zaobao's inquiry, the HDB said that the authorities have received feedback from residents since July 30 that the design of the structural beams of this HDB flat cannot accommodate the larger air conditioner trunking with larger drainage pipes and refrigerant pipes installed at the same time. (trunking).

HDB also said: “The Yishun Glen pre-purchase HDB project is built to industry standards. Although the structural beams cannot accommodate the larger air-conditioning trunking, smaller air-conditioning trunkings can be installed. Some households have already started using this type of wiring. They have installed air conditioners in their units. Nevertheless, HDB has met with residents who provided feedback and is working with them on how to install wiring ducts in their units.”

Yishun Glen on Yishun Ring Road is not yet fully completed, only Blocks 382A and 382B have been built for homeowners to collect their keys first. During a visit to this HDB area on Friday (August 5), the reporter learned that two-bedroom and three-bedroom units and above all face different problems.

The structural beams of the three-room and above units are too narrow, too close to the door, and there is no pre-drilled opening for the air conditioner wiring duct to pass through.

Although the structural beams of the two-bedroom units have pre-drilled openings, the openings are too high, and the air-conditioner drains must either “go up” or lead into the toilets from other locations.

According to HDB regulations, decorators are not allowed to work on structural beams at will. If they want to drill holes in structural beams, they must first obtain approval from the authorities.
