This SkyWorld Quality Centre is a big move as it is our endorsement of quality developments by SkyWorld. This Centre can also be used as a training and education ground for our staff as well as a sharing hub for our consultants and engineers, university students, prospective home buyers and also for the public who want to know more about the quality of construction in Malaysia.”

The SkyWorld Quality Centre is the first-of-its-kind in Malaysia and acts as a benchmark for quality construction for all SkyWorld developments. The centre signifies SkyWorld commitments to QLASSIC and CONQUAS quality assessment. SkyWorld will provide a showcase of quality workmanships such as the wall or floor evenness versus the uneven wall/floor surface. The SkyWorld Quality Centre will help you to identify quality shortcomings that you might not be able to identify visually. Short important notes will also be included, describing the quality requirements. This 13,000 square feet centre is earmarked for completion in September 2017 and boasts 10 functional areas such as the SkyWorld lounge, a mini auditorium that can seat 30 persons, a comprehensive show unit consisting of living room, bedroom, yard, balcony, corridor, staircase, kitchen and bathroom.
With good track record, SkyWorld is poised to perform well in its future projects. Many of its future developments are location-centric – within Kuala Lumpur region. With over 130 acres of quality land banks totalling more than RM13 billion in gross development value, SkyWorld is set to transform the city, one development at a time.
