"Looking to maximise your built up area? Understand site coverage before committing your purchase!"

Site coverage is calculated based on the coverage of all building features (elevated 1m or more above ground level) and footprint of the building when viewed from above.
Site Coverage = Covered Areas/Site Area
Based on above image, the area bounded by the red outline is defined as the covered area while the area in green is considered as net site area.
Site coverage is only applicable to detached houses. Based on current regulations by URA, the maximum site coverage for Good Class Bungalows (GCBs) and Non-GCBs are 40% and 50% respectively. For Semi-detached and Terraces, there is no limit on site coverage. Therefore, for the same land area, Semi-detached and Terraces will be able to have a significantly larger built-up area as compared to a detached house.
