Jem reopened its doors this morning, two weeks after the collapse of a partial false ceiling on the first floor of the shopping mall. 

This comes after rectification works and thorough checks were carried out by engineers to ensure that the Jurong East complex is safe for shoppers and tenants.   

On Tuesday, Singapore's Building and Construction Authority (BCA) also gave Jem the green light to go ahead with the reopening. BCA worked together with national water agency PUB to conduct inspections at the affected area of the mall. 

According to earlier reports, a burst water pipe caused the partial ceiling collapse which left three people injured and affected 240 tenants.
