10 October, KUALA LUMPUR – The iProperty Development Excellence Awards (iDEA) 2019 gala dinner which was held at The St. Regis Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 9 October saw more than 500 real estate players and experts gathering to celebrate the industry’s best. This year, the iDEA celebrated the highest levels of achievement and outstanding developments in 17 highly regarded categories in real estate.
LBS Bina Group Berhad (LBS) bagged the Best Developers Award under the coveted People’s Choice Award and Best Township Development (Below 500 Acres) for LBS Alam Perdana, while LBS Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Lim Hock San was presented with the most prestigious award, Innovative Leader of the Year under the Special Recognition category, for his leadership role and commitment to innovation in the property industry.
The Best Developer Award is one of the highest accolades of the evening and is given to the developer in recognition for consistently incorporating added value offering into its property projects. It also is based on the highest numbers of votes cast by members of the public.
As a renowned township developer, LBS also successfully received Best Township Development (Below 500 Acres) for its LBS Alam Perdana project. The company’s strategy in capitalizing on building a comprehensive township by implementing pertinent measures such as security, amenities, connectivity, education and health have helped in earning this accolade.
Tan Sri Lim said, “We are proud to be conferred with the Best Developer People’s Choice Award and Best Township Development (Below 500 Acres) for LBS Alam Perdana project. We would like to thank the public for acknowledging LBS as a top property brand in the country and this will motivate us further in maintaining our leadership position in the industry to the changing needs of our home buyers and communities.”
He added, “Both achievements would not have been possible without the unwavering commitment of the LBS team that have put their utmost hard work in developing quality projects all these years in the property industry. I believe that it is their true passion and effort that have elevated the company to its success today. Moving forward, we will continue to focus on creating quality, accessible and well-planned products as well as community-building initiatives.”
On receiving the Innovative Leader of the Year award, Tan Sri Lim commented, “It is truly an honour for me to receive this recognition. LBS has been building homes for more than 2 decades as it is our mission to help the nation achieve its agenda of helping more Malaysians own homes. LBS always strive to deliver the best performance in terms of results, sustainability and energy for us to continue in providing superior offerings to our home buyers for many generations to come. Despite the market’s ups and downs, we have ventured into many strategic and innovative ways such as incorporating the Industrialised Building System (IBS) to help us to continue building more affordable homes in a cost-effective way.”
