Leading integrated township, Sunway City Iskandar Puteri (SCIP) has obtained a 90% Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIQ) score, the highest score in 2021 for Sunway Lenang Heights and 89% for Sunway Citrine Lakehomes. These high scores were recognised by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) to applaud the company’s commitment and achievement in quality at an event held on 20th October which was officiated by Datuk Arthur Joseph Kurup, Deputy Minister of Works.
Sunway City Iskandar Puteri, the capital of nature, is a blend of six diverse precincts that come together in a strategic balance of nature and city. It is committed to achieving complete livability via sustainability. The chief executive of Sunway City Iskandar Puteri, Gerard Soosay, stated that quality is crucial for establishing sustainable developments and quality community life in the thriving township.
“We are extremely honoured and humbled in being recognised by CIDB as a high-achieving developer. Our strong commitment to quality is always at the heart of what we do, and achieving 90% for our Sunway Lenang Heights and 89% for our Sunway Citrine Lakehomes proved that our journey is a worthwhile effort for all,” said Gerard.
“I’m very proud to see that with years of expertise doing what we do best, our efforts have come to fruition and how inspiring this is to the whole team to continually strive for improvement. This is especially encouraging with the coming launch of our newest landed homes. I also want to emphasise that this win awarded by CIDB is only possible because of the partnership between all our partners including the contractors, consultants and also our team members involved. This win is not just a testament to Sunway, but to each individual in always putting quality first.”
The Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) is a system or method to measure and evaluate the workmanship quality of building construction work based on the Construction Industry Standard (CIS 7:2006). QLASSIC enables the quality of workmanship between construction projects to be objectively compared through a scoring system.QLASSIC assessments are carried out through site inspection and are based on the principles of first-time inspection. Construction works that are rectified after an assessment will not be re-assessed. The objective of this principle is to encourage the contractor to Do Things Right the First Time and Every Time.
Paul Lim, Managing Director of Inta Bina who are the building contractors for Sunway Lenang Heights said that they are pleased to be working with SCIP on developments that are built to last, and is confident for more achievements to come under the partnership.
“Having been operating for more than 25 years, we are delighted to be able to work with SCIP in delivering what we are excellent at, especially in the development’s design, material selection and quality workmanship. Sunway Lenang Heights is the epitome of what contemporary lifestyles should be defined as, and we are proud to see how this development is the ideal choice for both Malaysians and local Johoreans,” said Paul.
Tay Koo Hui, of Tay Hup Construction said that working on Sunway Citrine Lakehomes has been a fruitful venture for both Tay Hup and Sunway Iskandar Sdn Bhd.
“We would like to give our appreciation to SCIP for giving us this opportunity to work on a development as refined as Sunway Citrine Lakehomes. Working closely with SCIP allows us to achieve the desired results for this integrated development, and we are very excited to witness it receiving one of the highest scores that acknowledged quality standards that we delivered,” said Tay.
SCIP is looking to achieve further sustainable living for the community such as undertaking a Go Green initiative which includes releasing mud balls, planting trees and introducing recycling activities to the community.
Additionally, SCIP is looking to complete its Equine Hydrotherapy, Catamaran Boat & Horse Riding facility which is an ideal support for water eco-tourism.
