Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd (SunCon), a subsidiary of Sunway Construction Group Bhd, was awarded a RM1.61bil design and build contract from Putrajaya Bina Sdn Bhd last month.
Datuk Azlan Abdul Karim, Putrajaya Holdings CEO and Dato’ Chew Chee Kin, Sunway Group president were present to witness the groundbreaking ceremony of the project. The development sits on a 34-acre land in Precinct 1 Putrajaya and comprises four packages including 10 blocks of office towers, a podium parking and external works.
Completion is expected to be in 34 months, and the contract will positively contribute to the Group’s earnings. To date, the total outstanding order book for SunCon Group is RM4.3 billion.
The Group, to date, has received more than 40 national and international accolades and recognitions for excellent industry performance, management, safety and health, as well as quality. Its current projects include the Mass Rapid Transit Package V4, Light Rail Transit – Kelana Jaya extension line, Afiniti Urban Wellness Centre in Iskandar Johor, KLCC North East Carpark and KLCC Package 2.
The Group’s major completed projects locally include the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Legoland Malaysia Theme Park, Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Sunway Resort Hotel, Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall & Hotel, Sunway Medical Centre, Monash University Malaysia Campus, SILK Highway, the Spirit Aerosystems Facility in Subang, Pinewood Studios in Iskandar, Johor and the elevated Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Sunway Line. SunCon also progressed to undertake challenges abroad in the late 90’s by venturing into India, Trinidad and Tobago and the Middle East. To date, it has successfully completed the construction of seven major highways in various parts of India’s Golden Quadrilateral Expressway, the Al Reem Island Development and Rihan Heights in Abu Dhabi, and the Ministry of Legal Affairs Tower building in Trinidad and Tobago.
Sunway Construction is also currently the first in its field to design buildings using the Virtual Design and Construction system (VDC). This innovative and integrated approach to managing design and costs through digitisation of information models ensures better streamlining of design, scheduling and fabrication processes, and is seen by the Group to be a competitive advantage going forward.
