Located in simply a modest rented office space in Yishun, Chee Yam Contractor (Sole-Proprietorship) was founded back in 1983. As a sub-contractor, it was involved in projects such as the construction of Pedestrian Overhead Bridge in Toa Payoh Lorong 1, and the construction of then Toa Payoh Bus Interchange. Chee Yam Contractor Pte Ltd was later incorporated on 18 May 1988 as a construction and civil engineering company.

Led by Mr Ang Chee Yam JP BBM, Chee Yam Contractor has successfully constructed more than 200 construction and infrastructure-related projects in Singapore over the last 30 years, therefore creating its specialty in the construction of Pedestrian Overhead Bridge at the same time. Chee Yam Contractor is registered with the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) as a B2 Civil Engineering contracting firm.

Today, Chee Yam Contractor is evolving into one of the fastest growing civil engineering and construction company in Singapore. Chee Yam Contractor is also a proud recipient of the Successful Entrepreneur 2010 Platinum Award.
