Casa Clementi, the largest public housing project by the Housing Board (HDB) so far, has been recognised by a global association for project managers for being expertly managed and built.

The 2,234-unit estate in the Western part of Singapore, clinched the PMI Distinguished Project Award from the Project Management Institute, which organised the PMI Professional Awards 2013, said a HDB statement on Monday.

The Awards honour organisations and individuals around the world who have demonstrated exemplary performance of project management in 20 award categories.

One of the three recipients of the Award this year, HDB is the first Singapore recipient of the globally recognised award since its inception in 2006.

HDB said that Casa Clementi was completed ahead of schedule and within budget despite its scale and proximity to existing developments.

Besides HDB, the project's other partners included urban planner Surbana International consultants and Straits Constructions Singapore.
