Selangor – Sunway Berhad’s Property arm was recognized as one of Malaysia’s Top 10 property developers for the second consecutive year at the BCI Asia Awards 2012 – Malaysia, in an event held at KL Hilton recently. The BCI Asia Top 10 Awards recognised ten property developers and architecture firms that had the greatest impact on the built environment in the Southeast Asia region.

Since its inception in 2005, the Top 10 Awards is among the most coveted awards for the Asian building and design industry. The BCI Asia Top 10 Developers Awards was launched in 2011 to recognise the work of top developers in Asia namely Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Based on the greatest volume of buildings over an annual qualification period, the selection for the award recipients was made through BCI Asia Research Consultant’s aggregation of more than a quarter of a million interviews with architects, developers, consultants and contractors reporting on significant building projects in Asia Pacific.

“The BCI Asia Awards is an excellent recognition for Sunway as it reinforces our position as an outstanding property developer and gives us the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to deliver only the best for our customers,” said Ho Hon Sang, Managing Director of Property Development Division, Sunway Group.

Ho explained that besides being a property developer that aims to build a better life for the community to live, work, play, heal and learn, Sunway is also committed to fulfilling the five principles of Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) when conceptualising every project. The term LOHAS refers to a market sector that desires goods and services that are focused on the five pillars of health and fitness, environment, personal development, sustainable living and social justice. LOHAS is not limited to only green movements but it also promotes a balance, healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

Sunway is a pioneer in delivering integrated townships and development in Malaysia. The thriving townships under its umbrella, Sunway Integrated Resort City and Sunway South Quay located in Bandar Sunway and in Sunway City Ipoh in Tambun Perak respectively are testaments to its success.

Sunway Berhad is also one of the developers in the mega project Iskandar Malaysia in Johor. With 691 acres of prime land bank in a joint venture with Khazanah Nasional, Sunway Iskandar is a sustainable integrated project with an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM12 billion.
