25 Years in construction and
TLC Modular was born on industrial,
oil and gas services and construction industries, operating in Viet Nam since 1995.
Founded by an Australian expatriate, the company has accumulated experience across a wide range of construction sectors.
From this experience the founder saw the opportunity and potential for TLC Modular construction, combining his experience with Vietnam’s global advantage in heavy manufacturing and engineering.
A Strategic Partnership
In 2015 a partnership was conceived with SHS Ltd Singapore securing the corporate and financial backing critical to success in delivering TLC’s now leading edge product to broader markets and large scale projects.
TLC has invested not only in its processes and technology but in its people and engineering capability required to adapt and solve the complex equation that is modular construction and design.
The company's operations proudly comprise of professionals hailing from Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Singapore and Vietnams brightest talent.
TLC services with wider South East Asian market, and extending through Australia and New Zealand.
Operations, Engineering and Manufacturing are based primarily in Vietnam, with over 80 projects and engineering staff in Saigon with TLC’s manufacturing base a short drive south in Vung Tau.
Branch offices and TLC representatives are based in New Zealand and Australia, servicing clients and TLC’s installation and construction programs.

The TLC Modular Advantage
TLC is proudly and truly international In its people and industry capabilities.
As a SEA based manufacturer, TLC has invested heavily in expatriate management and design professionals along side local talents and meeting and exceeding our service level expectations.
The scope and scale of modular projects often involves long-lead client relationship and under contract, the financial strength and capacity to deliver.
TLC’s partnership with the parent company SHS Ltd has brought this strength, increasing the scale of projects within our capability, whilst bolstering our commercial terms in partnering with our clients.
As an outfit of scale within a company group of complimentary businesses, TLC has invested strategically on accreditations, processes, R&D, plant and equipment to position itself as a industry leader.
Building horizontally in factory has inherent advantage over the traditional vertical, constrained construction sites typical in most projects.
TLC’s state of the art facilities bring production line efficiencies to building and construction industry. Our plant and equipment is designed around the flow of processes, material and products to be incorporated into our modules.
Specialized stores, machining jigs, framing, and preparation areas feed our production floor maximizing output, whilst providing a safe and quality controlled area.
The key cost driver for TLC is our procurement and material sourcing edge. TLC is able to offer and accommodate carpentry and finishing details on in-situ construction, that would have a significant impact on cost and time on site.
TLC ensures the labour hours are spent on quality finishing, testing and commissioning of our products prior to consignment for shipping and delivery.
Upon consignment from the factory door, modules undergo a rigorous process of lifting and transportation over many modes and miles. By necessity the modules are engineered and designed to the last detail to withstand these processes and maintain structural integrity and finishing quality.
From Concept Architecture through schematic development and building approvals, Modular design expertise is Key in achieving best outcomes for clients and successful project delivery.
TLC’s Engineering office covers all disciplines under one roof, allowing the team to conceptualize and collaborate through all phases of Design and engineering process.
In Modular as in traditional engineering, no two projects are alike. Architectural and Engineering solution need to respond to the site, location, logistic requirement of the project.
TLC’s experience, expertise and suite of external consulting engineers have track record in the vast array of challenges that are uniquely present in modular engineered buildings
Paralleled modular and site works programs.
Factory building efficiencies.
Significant exposure reduction to external delays.
Installed furnishing and equipment to modules expedites program and reduces building damage and defects post-completion.
Potential to commence manufacturing procurement, fabrication and preliminaries prior to permit issue or site access availability.
Potential engineering and Design program reduction with TLC’s in-house team and external consultant partnership.
Defects and as-con survey completion on factory reduces post-handover programs.
