The Father / Founder / Chief Project Manager
Tony is one of the original founders of Z L Construction, known as Chin Leong Trading Company back in 1968. He studied Chemical Engineering in Singapore Polytechnic but curiosity led to him picking up the ropes of construction.
Decades of toiling in the tough renovation industry has honed Tony to be an exceptionally experienced contractor and project manager, establishing some strong camaraderie with his long-term partners and co-workers. With knowledge accumulated over the years at the tip of his fingertips, he is able to describe almost all construction procedures in detail with great accuracy.
Rather risk-aversed, Tony has always preferred to earn just sufficient to put food on the table for his family’s needs. Despite his largely traditional and conservative mind-set, he has been very receptive and supportive of the new ideas and initiatives brought forth by his son, Jake. The company’s results and accomplishments are testaments of the father and son’s trust and respect for each other.
Tony is a Buddhist and vegetarian. During his free time, Tony enjoys playing with his grandchildren and mastering Chinese calligraphy.
