Worldbridge Land held an awards ceremony on June 30 to reward students from the Royal University of Fine Arts who came up with house designs and standards appropriate to the lives of low-income and middle-income Khmer homebuyers. Sear Rithy, CEO of Worldbridge Land, said the project was aimed at building more affordable homes for Cambodian homebuyers in this specific price bracket. He said that since the company was not able to find engineers and designers with enough expertise and experience to work on the layout of the construction project, it created this design competition for home designers at the Royal University of Fine Arts to enlighten the students and give them an opportunity to create fashionable homes for low-income and middle-income Cambodian people who want to buy houses.
