As the main contractor, we were awarded the project to design and build 160 units for a sub-contract value of almost RM28 million. These 5-storey low cost apartments were to cater to the needs of Pulau Redang locals. The project was challenging as it involved moving a massive amount of construction material from the mainland to the island wherein there is no connecting bridge.
To overcome this obstacle, we transported our own Industrialised Building System (IBS) or Prefabricated Building Materials over the sea. Our IBS is different from other systems as it is proprietary and it is not pre-cast, particularly well suited for places where it is hard to transport large or bulky materials. The system not only produces less construction waste but requires less labour.
