About Central Business District - CBD

The Downtown Core is the historical and downtown centre of the city-state of Singapore and the main commercial area in Singapore with many integrated resorts such as the Marina Bay Sands, one of the most expensive buildings in the world, with the most expensive standalone casino at bayfront avenue. There are many skyscrapers in Raffles Place, Tanjong Pagar and Marina Bay CBD with a height limit of 280m. It is one of the eleven planning areas located within the most urbanised Central Area, forming the latter's dense urban core. It is bounded by Rochor to the north, Kallang to the northeast, Marina East and Marina South to the east, Straits View to the southeast, Bukit Merah to the south, as well as Outram, Museum and Singapore River to the west. 

As the financial Heart of Singapore, the Downtown Core houses the headquarters and offices of numerous corporations, as well as the Singapore Exchange. The area is also home to a large number of governmental institutions, notably the seat of Parliament and the Supreme Court of Singapore.   

Singapore's modern history began in this area, when Stamford Raffles and representatives of the British East India Company landed along the banks of the Singapore River to set up a free port in Southeast Asia. As the old harbour grew along the mouth of the river bank, the city naturally expanded around it, creating what is now the Central Area. 

The name "Downtown Core" remains relatively unheard of and the term Central Business District (CBD) is commonly used in conversation instead. However, the area known as the CBD actually comprises a smaller area within the Downtown Core itself, taking up the south-western and western portions of the planning area. It is made up of eight subzones, Anson, Cecil, Clifford Pier, Maxwell, Phillip, Raffles Place and Tanjong Pagar and Marina Bay. The core of the CBD has since extended well beyond its boundaries and the term is even often at times used to refer to the Central Area as a whole.

 As a fledgling colony, the area which is now known as the Downtown Core was the financial, administrative and commercial centre of the colony. In 1823, Singapore was reorganised according to the Raffles Plan of Singapore by Sir Stamford Raffles, which specified elements like the Commercial Square (now Raffles Place) and the European Town as well as various other commercial and administrative entities located between them. This area later became the Downtown Core.

So what is a Handyman?

handyman, also known as a handyperson or handyworker, is a person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks include trade skills, repair work, maintenance work, are both interior and exterior, and are sometimes described as "side work", "odd jobs" or "fix-up tasks".

The services that a handyman can provide vary widely, and so do the rates for such services. The current market and the personal preferences of the handyman affect both of these greatly. Basically, a handyman is a jack-of-all-trades, an individual who is skilled at performing various tasks. Handymen usually take on jobs like minor home repairs and other construction tasks.

How big or small these tasks are, along with how experienced the handyman is will be what determines the rate that you will be paying. Some handymen will estimate how long a job will take and base their rate off that, or will offer a flat rate for the whole job. Paying a flat rate can be advantageous for you if your handyman gives you an honest estimate of how long the job takes.

The flat rate also protects you from complications that may arise that make the job take longer than expected. 

What is a Professional Handyman Company?

Most of the handyman prefer to do field work rather than being desk bound and managing the business. While many operate as an individual or a small team and registered as a sole proprietor, there aren’t many truly professional handymen company that are licensed and insured. It is easily to assume that handyman work seems simple, sometime a twist of fate can turn into disaster and can get out of control. Such as drilling through a conceal pipe or electrical wires. 

 the difference with a professional handyman company is that...

This incident can be prevented with the right use of equipment and know how. However, when disaster strike, a professional company will be able to handle such crisis whereby the individual cannot. Professional handyman company have many teams of technician with various core trade specialist such as carpenter, plumber and electrician.  Professional handyman company have more accountability, reliability and credential due to the licensed issued with stringent requirement by the relevant authorities such as HDB and BCA.

A professional handyman company is more organised, better equipt and better trained with constant updates on the current practices. In order to comply to the regulatory of the authority, the cost of a professional company operation gets higher compared to a sole proprietor. Not many wants to or are able to run a full pledge professional handyman company. Ultimately, engaging a Professional Handyman company will give you a peace of mind knowing that the job will be completed due to the solid support of the organisation and its capability to deliver as promised.
