Foundation works will be started next week...




Pintaras wins RM74m PNB Warisan Merdeka tower contract

March 12, 2014

KUALA LUMPUR (Mar 12): Pintaras Jaya Bhd has won a RM74 million contract to undertake foundation work for the proposed Warisan Merdeka tower here.

News reports indicate that the 118-storey Warisan Merdeka tower is located adjacent to the Chin Woo Stadium along Jalan Sultan here. Permodalan Nasional Bhd is the developer of the tower.

Pintaras said in a statement to Bursa Malaysia that its subsidiary Pintaras Geotechnics Sdn Bhd had received a commencement date notice for the project today from PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd.

According to Pintaras, the foundation work will commence next Monday (March 17). The project will take about a year to complete.

"The said contract is expected to contribute positively to PJB Group's (Pintaras) future earnings," the group said.

Warisan Merdeka works set to begin

The foundation for the 118- storey skyscraper Warisan Merdeka project within the enclave of Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara will kick off next week with the contract for the works assigned to Pintaras Jaya Bhd’s subsidiary for RM74 million.

The iconic project that is estimated to be worth RM5 billion had been halted for sometime.

Pintaras, in an announcement at the stock exchange yesterday, said its subsidiary Pintaras Geotechnics Sdn Bhd received a commencement date notice dated March 12 this year from PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd to undertake foundation works for the proposed building at Warisan Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur (KL).

The said works are to commence on March 17, 2014, with a completion period of about a year,” it said.

The project was earlier expected to start in 2011, and scheduled to be completed in 2015, however, after the delay of almost three years in commencement of works, the completion may take longer.

The overall Warisan Merdeka development will be on 19 acres and the heritage stadiums, the site is set to be another major landmark in KL.

As per the initial plan, the two stadiums will be retained as national heritage buildings.

The development was supposed to consist of a complex for a mall, residences and an office skyscraper.

With 118 floors, the height of the building will exceed 500m, surpassing the current tallest buildings in Malaysia, the 452m Petronas Twin Towers.

An initiative by Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), the building may also be used as the PNB headquarters.

Wow, HUGE tower. I'm glad it's not anywhere near the Petronas Tower though because the styles are so radically different that I don't think they would work together. Although I usually like weird-looking towers, Merdeka is a bit free form/abstract for me. I prefer the classical elegance of Petronas.

i cannot really judge the building to be honest, we know that the shape is modern and crazy, but a choice of cladding can lead this building in any direction really.

Warisan Merdeka project will not be at Bandar Malaysia

by bk sidhu



Warisan Merdeka, which will house the headquarters of PNB and its group of companies, will be located within the enclave of Merdeka Stadium, seen here.


The 118-storey Warisan Merdeka tower project has moved from the drawing board and onto the construction phase after the first contract was awarded to Pintaras Jaya Bhd this week.

This effectively puts an end to speculation that the massive tower was going to be shifted to the old Sungei Besi airport where 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) is undertaking a mammoth development to create Bandar Malaysia.

The hope was that the tower would be a catalyst for 1MDB’s development there.

Since November last year, market talk was that the tower could be moved to the new location because there is no iconic building at Bandar Malaysia.

But the award to Pintaras Jaya Bhd, which took the market by surprise, underlines Permodalan Nasional Bhd’s (PNB) persistence to keep the location of the tower at its original location.

“There have been several proposals but a lot depended on the feasibility studies.

“What really works for PNB and where it really wants to be and naturally, it does not want to be pushed around,’’ says a source.

1MDB needs an iconic building to attract investors to Bandar Malaysia and prior to that, a lot of infrastructure would also be laid before investors can be enticed.

Pintaras Jaya in an announcement to Bursa Malaysia on Wednesday said its subsidiary Pintaras Geotechnics Sdn Bhd received a commencement date notice dated March 12 this year from PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd to undertake foundation works for the proposed building at Warisan Merdeka in Kuala Lumpur.

PNB Merdeka Ventures is a unit of PNB, the developer of Warisan Merdeka.

The contract to Pintaras is worth RM74mil for foundation works.

Those in the know claim that there was a tender bid and Pintaras, given its expertise in foundation works, was selected for the job.

The pre-qualification for the foundation works commenced in March 2012.

But this is just the first of many contracts that will be dished out.

The next step is for further clearance works and within this year the contract for the superstructure will also be tendered out.


Several companies are keen to be part of the development but Merdeka Ventures is not willing to say much on that.

The skyscraper project or Warisan Merdeka, which will house the headquarters of PNB and its group of companies, will be located within the enclave of Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara.

It will be developed on 19 acres, and the two stadiums will be retained as national heritage buildings.

The skyscraper project will also consist of a mall and public park and house a luxury hotel and about 20 floors will be rented to tenants.

With 118 floors, the height of the building is expected to exceed 500m, meaning that it will surpass the current tallest building in Malaysia which is the 452m Petronas Twin Towers. It will have gross floor space of 3 million sq ft and 2.2 million sq ft of net floor space and the building will cost RM2.5bil to RM3bil.

The entire development in addition to the tower is projected to cost RM5bil.

As for 1MDB, it is a government-owned master developer for the redevelopment of the 495-acre (196 hectares) Bandar Malaysia in Sungei Besi. The development of Bandar Malaysia will kick start with affordable housing units within the next one to two years.

For Pintaras Jaya, analysts say the new contract will boost the company’s outstanding orderbook to RM224mil and likely boost earnings before interest and tax by RM22.2mil.

Pintaras Jaya said work at the site will commence on March 17 and is expected to be completed within a year’s time.
