About ARID

ARID BUILDERS are the experts in commercial office renovation in Singapore. For 10 years, we specialize in helping our clients to find the most suitable office design to suit their requirements. 

Our team of professionals focus on “Commercial Interior Design” and are well recognized for having the most comprehensive office design and technical knowledge for commercial renovation projects in Singapore.

Established on May 5, 2011, ARID started out as an office interior design consultancy firm under the name ARID + Associates. The desire to be a turn-key commercial contractor prompted the organization to re-brand and change its name to ARID Builders Pte Ltd (UEN no. 201304240Z) to reposition itself to be a design and build company offering office & retail renovations.

Since 2013, ARID has been working on numerous office designs and retail shop renovation projects ranging from 1000 to 25,000sq.ft as of this year ARID Builders has already completed more than 320,000sq.ft of office and retail space. The market for office design and build in Singapore has been constantly growing due to the increase in new developments in office and retail space availability in the CBD and the steady uptrend of light industrial developments in Singapore.

We take pride in being a Bizsafe3 and Building Construction Authority (BCA) registered contractor in Singapore. We ensure that we keep a track record (Form-D) of all our projects to comply with the BCA accreditation guidelines.

Due to the recent changes in the office interior design landscape brought about by the rise of co-working spaces and the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, ARID has acquired new investment and has pivoted to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) as its core business thus strengthening our commitment to helping control the spread of viruses, airborne pathogens and control indoor air pollutants.
