Warisan Merdeka good for sector: CIDB
Published: 2010/10/31
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia has lauded the Warisan Merdeka project which it said will augur well for the construction industry.

Its chief executive, Datuk Hamzah Hasan, said the project was good and would upskill the industry.

"In most (of the) tallest buildings here, the structural steel is done by Malaysians. So nothing much that we cannot do," he said at a recent media luncheon.

The RM5 billion 100-storey Warisan Merdeka project, located within the enclave of Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara, will be developed by Permodalan Nasional Bhd.

The project, announced during the recent 2011 Budget, is expected to start next year for completion in 2015.

On the impact of the Economic Transformation Programme projects and that of the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) on the industry, Hamzah said the projects under the 10MP were in a good spread.

He said the construction industry would be supporting all sectors under the 10MP as its growth has been running parallel with the country's gross domestic product (GDP).

"As the country's GDP is anticipated at six per cent annually, the construction sector would need to grow by at least by 3.7 per cent to be in line with the country's growth," he said.

To achieve it, he said, the industry would need projects worth RM77.4 billion in 2010 and RM80.3 billion in 2011.

However, the industry was expected to go beyond the growth target as it had been growing at 5.8 per cent in 2009, he said.

"The target is achievable. In fact, in the first quarter of this year, growth has been at 8.7 per cent and 5.9 per cent in the second quarter," he said. -- Bernama

Eversendai keen to bid for PNB tower job
By Presenna Nambiar Published: 2010/11/08
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

STRUCTURAL steel company Eversendai Corp Bhd is interested in bidding for the steel structural job for the 100-storey tower planned by Permodalan Nasional Bhd.

The 525m tower will cost PNB about RM2.5 billion.

"Yes, that is one project that I am having my eye on...," Eversendai founder Datuk A.K. Nathan told Business Times recently.

Eversendai has built steel structures for a number of landmark buildings around the world, namely Burj Khalifa, a 828m tall structure, Burj Al-Arab Hotel, Dubai Mall, and Tower 2 of the Petronas Twin Towers.

When asked if he had approached PNB regarding the job, Nathan said he was currently "strategising".

"I can get most contracts without much difficulty, but in Malaysia, it is a different ball game altogether. I need to do a lot of strategising and ... it's got a unique way of doing business," he said.

Despite being a Malaysian company, most of Eversendai lucrative contracts are from overseas.

About 95 per cent of its revenue is from overseas, with a majority of it coming from the Gulf region.

Its RM65 million job to build a warehouse for PKT Logistics (M) Sdn Bhd secured in April is its first in "some time".

"Jobs (in Malaysia) have been few and far. I am more well recognised overseas than in Malaysia, that's the sad part," Nathan said.

That will soon change though, as the company looks to "take the right approach to penetrate the Malaysian market".

"I foresee that eventually, Eversendai will be able to do some decent business in Malaysia," Nathan said.

The year 2011 will be a year of growing new markets for Eversendai, as it moves in a big way into India, with the setting up of a 30,000 tonne a year fabrication plant there.

The company is currently scouting for a location for it. It is to be up and running a year from now.

Eversendai already has fabrication plants with a capacity of 120,000 tonnes a year in the Gulf region.

"Next year will be about Singapore in a small way, beyond that will be the North African region which has a lot of potential," Nathan said.

Eversendai is looking at new developing markets in the Middle East.

India, which does not contribute much to revenue now, is expected to make up 30 per cent of its revenue in 2011.

While Eversendai did see a slowdown in work in the first three months of 2010, things have picked up since then, and production is back at round the clock.

Nathan is expecting 2010 to end much better than its performance in 2009. No figures were revealed.

Rally behind Greater KL
WANI MUTHIAH, ELAN PERUMAL and A.RUBAN at the Selangor State Assembly
Wednesday November 10, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...39&sec=central

THE Selangor State Assembly was told yesterday that the state government supported the Federal Government’s Greater KL plan.

Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said he supported the plan because it would be a catalyst in stoking economic growth not only in Selangor but for Malaysia.

He said the plan would also increase the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and employment opportunities.

He said the Greater KL plan would attract more offices and businesses to set up operations in the Klang Valley.

Khalid, who was responding to Dr Shafie Abu Bakar’s (PAS-Bangi) question on the state government’s stand on the Greater KL plan, added that the plan should be accepted due to these factors.

According to Khalid, the plan’s top-notch development would pave the way for big investments.

Later at a press conference, when asked if he also supported the construction of Permodalan Nasional Berhad’s (PNB) 100-storey Warisan Merdeka tower, Khalid said such a big project should be debated on first.

“I will only support it for the development of the Klang Valley.

“I will not accept it if it is just for the sake of building the tower,” he said.

Khalid added there ought to be a very good reason why a skyscraper was needed at the selected location.

PNB should provide figures such as occupancy rate forecast and office space marketing plans ready,” he said.

[Khalid said the Selangor government had also agreed to work hand-in-hand with the Federal Government to implement and realise the Greater KL plan.

He said both he and the state secretary were on the Performance Management and Delivery Unit committee on the plan.

Khalid said the plan would be explained to the people in Selangor through discussion sessions.

He also clarified reports earlier in the day quoting him as saying that he supported the building.

The Warisan Merdeka project is scheduled to be built next to Stadium Negara and Stadium Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.

PETALING JAYA: Developers and property consultants have urged the Government to commission extensive and in-depth feasibility and market studies on the proposed 100-storey Warisan Merdeka to gauge its cost-benefit and potential impact on the property market before proceeding with the project.

MELBOURNE architectural firm Fender Katsalidis has won a design tender in Malaysia for what will be the world's second-tallest tower.

The tower, which will be more than 580 metres high and have more than 100 storeys, will be surpassed only by the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai, which at 828 metres is still by far the tallest building in the world.

The new structure will be built in Kuala Lumpur, surpassing also Malaysia's current highest building, the Petronas Towers, which are 452 metres tall.

The cost of the new tower has not been finalised, and detailed drawings are not yet available.

Fender Katsalidis director Karl Fender told The Age it would be a crystalline building with a shape inspired by Islamic patterning.

Mr Fender said that Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak recently announced the winning tender in Parliament. 'It has become an election topic over there, but the tower will go ahead if the Prime Minister is re-elected,'' he said.

In the interim, Mr Fender will visit New York this week for negotiations with building consultants including Leslie Robertson, one of the chief structural engineers of the World Trade Centre, which was destroyed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

''For a building like that that [in Kuala Lumpur], you can't mess around. You must have consultants with the most most appropriate experience,'' he said. Talks with experts on mechanical electrical plumbing would also be held.

Mr Fender said the developers were aiming for the highest level of sustainability.

''It's another example of an Australian firm being selected because they were in the region - not America or Europe - and therefore accessible, and with the appropriate experience - the Eureka Tower,'' he said.

however i seriously doubt @ 580 m this would be the 2nd tallest in the world. Give it a year or two, China would def. have upped the ante.
