Mudajaya Group Bhd clinched a RM118.6mil contract to build the 16-storey Hevea Tower in Sungai Buloh, which is expected to be the Malaysian Rubber Board’s (MRB) corporate headquarters.
The contract, comprising a 16-storey office complex with a three-storey podium, was awarded by the KLIA Consult Services and KLIA Associates (KLIAA-KLIACS) consortium, as reported in The Star.
The office complex is part of a proposed development extending over 2,330 acres of land owned by the Malaysian Rubber Board.
According to Mudajaya’s announcement on Tuesday, Hevea Tower is targeted to be completed by September 2019. “The project is expected to contribute positively to the group’s earnings for the financial year ending Dec 31, 2017, onwards,” it said.
Hevea Tower is designed by the MvS Architects + Lee Chor Wah Architect/iPartnership. The building’s facade is designed to resemble the bark of the hevea tree trunk with a sequence of undulating panels. The building will serve as a one-stop centre, with a day care nursey, police station, gym and cafeteria, along with a mix of formal and informal work and meeting areas. — Construction+ Online
