KUALA LUMPUR: S P Setia Berhad’s continuous commitment to quality was evident when one of its projects in Setia Ecohill, Semenyih was awarded for quality excellence at the High QLASSIC Achievement Awards 2017 organized by Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB).
The annual event was celebrated this morning with Tan Hon Lim (Executive Vice President of S P Setia Berhad) receiving the award on behalf of the developer for the Saraca collection, one of their maiden projects in Setia Ecohill, Semenyih. S P Setia was among the high-achieving developers and contractors of 43 projects who received the award from Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri Fadillah bin Haji Yusof, Minister of Works, Malaysia.
“We are proud to be amongst the top developers who are noted for our delivery of quality products. At Setia, we also always place customer satisfaction at the forefront of the development value chain – from the design, location and build of the property to the quality of service,” said Tan at the event.
The Saraca collection consists of 91 units of 22’x75’ double-storey terrace homes located amidst the greenery of Setia Ecohill. First launched in August 2013, all units boasts a built up of 2,065 sq. ft. which attracted buyers from the immediate surrounding areas such as Cheras, Seri Kembangan, Kajang, Bangi and Nilai. Those residing in other highly populated urban city areas such as Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam and Puchong were also target buyers. With a GDV of 64 million, Saraca was completed in October 2016.
“This assessment is in line with our aspiration of getting things right the first time around. We are proud that the Setia brand today is synonymous with strength, reliability and the value creation that we bring to all our developments”, said Tan proudly.
Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) is a system or method to measure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building construction work based on Construction Industry Standard (CIS 7:2006). QLASSIC enables the quality of workmanship between construction projects to be objectively compared through a scoring system. QLASSIC assessments are carried out through site inspection and use the principles of first time inspection. Construction works that are rectified after an assessment will not be re-assessed. The objective of this principle is to encourage the contractor to “Do Things Right the First Time and Every Time”.
