I’ve seen SDW grow from 10 staff to now almost a hundred. Before, it’s easy to immerse with the group. You can be familiar with who is who in a day or two. Now, a new employee will take a week or even a month in order to be familiar with the staff and what team they are involved with.
SDW then holds office in a small room in Sucat. A conference table was a working desk and a meeting table simultaneously. Until we moved to Pioneer office in 2016 that started in a small office and expanded to twice the size later on.
During the earlier times of SDW, we had to do multi-tasking responsibilities just to cope up with deadlines. We still do, but now we have our own team to make sure the deadline is met.
Projects are a bit scarce during those times. We would then celebrate every time we close a contract of 5 M. Now, we have to evaluate the projects value to the company. We have to consider Quality over Quantity.
It’s been years of struggle but we finally made it to the Fit Out industry. I’m happy to be a part of this family.
Contracts Admin Manager
SDW gave me a chance to lead a new department. And it is with gratitude that I took on this role given the trust in my capability to handle the supply chain covering both logistics and warehouse. With this new role, I gained new learnings and now I’m working towards a common goal together with my SDW colleagues.
Supply Chain Manager
A company that gives me creative freedom while providing valuable insights toward my design is my dream job, I am glad to have found it in SDW. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with a team that pushes for excellence, values commitment while upholding trust, respect and dignity for all. I am very proud to be part of this company. I feel that as SDW grows, I grow too as an individual.
Working in SDW gives me a boost for every project we do. The “Kaya Spirit” motivates and challenges me a lot to strive and enhance my expertise. Our team provides 24-hour delivery service to various project sites and timely updates on urgent materials needed. And we get excited as we see the project unfolds step by step. It makes us proud to see the designs made by our team become a reality. Go Team SDW! May we continue to contribute more in the construction industry.
Life in SDW
Human beings are naturally social creatures – we crave friendship and positive interactions, just as we do food and water. So it makes sense that the better our relationships are at work, the happier and more productive we’re going to be.
Good working relationships give us several other benefits: our work is more enjoyable when we have good relationships with those around us. Also, people are more likely to go along with the changes that we want to implement, and we’re more innovative and creative.
Both for our own professional development and for the services we provide our clients, becoming a better version of ourselves and for our clients is important to the very core of SDW. We want to improve and innovate constantly and consistently, this is a core value that is important to the organization and our success.
Rolling Up Sleeves
No matter your level in the organization, you’re willing to dive in headfirst to get work done and support the team. No one is above lending a hand and ensuring what needs to get done to achieve success is done.
We believe in being honest with our clients and with ourselves to become the best people, co-workers, and advisors to our clients that we can be.
Our clients rely on our ability to be creative, to think “outside the box”, and to deliver winning solutions. Being creative at SDW is a core value and should be fostered on a personal and professional level.
Our work is our art and we want to apply attention to detail, pride, and the highest quality behind every client account and company project we work on.
Learning by experience is the way we grow. We shouldn’t be afraid of failure if we’re trying, learning, and moving forward. We should push ourselves to try new things both personally and professionally.
