November 16, KUALA LUMPUR – Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has introduced the Building Management and Information System (BMIS) which can help strata home owners lodge reports and access information on their units more efficiently.
Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said, through BMIS, every strata home owners would be supplied with a smart card to deal with DBKL’s Commissioner of Building (COB) Division.
“This system will display the building structure specifications in 3D and has links with complaint information, fast access to obtain information of unit owner, floor plan and mechanical and civil plans for reference.
“It is also an effective way to facilitate COB to identify problems and subsequently providing the facility to strata owners to solve their housing problems,” he said in his speech during a Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory Sustainable Strata Convention, here today.
Tengku Adnan said to ensure the existence of a strata community which was more sustainable, COB must also set up a mediation centre specifically for the strata community in the national capital such as the existing model in Putrajaya, namely, the Putrajaya Community Mediation Centre.
“The mediation centre’s role is to focus on tackling complaints or conflicts in the strata community outside the parameter of the provisions of the Strata Management Act 2013 (Act 757).
“Through the proposed settlement method via mediation, it is hoped that a sustainable strata community can be created.”
He said the sustainability impact on established strata communities in the national capital was clearly seen after Act 757 was enforced since 2015.
“Among the impacts which can be seen include the role of COB in helping strata owners over maintenance and management via the guideline and circulars issued,” he said.
The convention, which was attended by about 200 participants comprising representatives of joint management bodies and management corporations aimed at giving exposure on the use of Act 757 and the aspects of more effective and efficient management of buildings with strata.
