KUALA LUMPUR — Aug. 22, 2017: Sime Darby Property has enhanced its position as Malaysia’s leading property developer, presenting the highest product quality, by winning 13 quality building awards at the recent QLASSIC Excellence Awards 2017.
This made the company the most awarded developer at the ceremony.
The Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) is a system or method to measure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building’s construction work, based on the Construction Industry Standard (CIS 7:2006), enabling the quality of workmanship between construction projects to be objectively compared through a scoring system, said a statement.
Sime Darby Property was awarded for its townships such as Bandar Bukit Raja, City of Elmina, Bandar Ainsdale and Nilai Impian and including a commercial development in Ara Damansara by its subsidiary, Sime Darby Brunsfield.
Sime Darby Property was among the high-achieving developers and contractors for 43 projects awarded for quality and excellence at the event organised by the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia.
The company was also presented with a special appreciation award — the QLASSIC Excellence Awards 2017 — by CIDB for being the developer with the most wins.
QLASSIC assessments were carried out through site inspections based on the principles of first time inspection, where construction work rectified after an assessment would not be re-assessed.
The results showed tremendous improvements, year on year, such as the reduction of non-compliance at the structural construction stage as well as a decrease in defects per unit.
QLASSIC was one of the final stages in Sime Darby Property’s product quality assessment system following its own stringent internal assessments. — Bernama
