26 Sep 2016
Setia Precast Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of S P Setia Berhad, Malaysia’s leading property developer was awarded the prestigious Industrialised Building System (IBS) Special Award category for its construction of Seri Jati affordable apartment in Setia Alam, at the Malaysia Construction Industry Excellence Award (MCIEA) 2016 organised by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB). The ceremony was held at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur last night.
Present at the ceremony to receive the award was Kow Choong Ming, Executive Vice President of S P Setia Berhad who accepted the honour from Dato' Sri Zohari bin Haji Akob, Secretary General of the Ministry of Works, Malaysia.
The IBS award is presented to those who deliver quality workmanship with high IBS score, innovative construction management with minimisation of construction wastage, cleanliness and high safety level, efficient usage of materials and labour and completion within schedule.
S P Setia’s affordable apartments in Setia Alam as well as Setia EcoHill are constructed using the precast construction system as we can ensure consistent quality on completion with lesser defects thus reduces rectification costs and inconveniences. Besides, this system also uses less labour as most of the structural components can be prefabricated off site.
Other affordable apartments in Setia Alam which were built using the this system are Seri Baiduri, Seri Intan, Seri Kasturi, Seri Mutiara and Seri Pinang where they are well accepted by the purchasers upon vacant possession.
S P Setia’s affordable apartments have garnered the attention of many industry awards which recognise the quality of these projects and the value they provided to purchasers. In early 2016, Seri Baiduri apartment in Setia Alam was bestowed the Star Property Award under the Starter Home Award.
