IJM wins major hospital and LHDN building contracts in Malaysia

Malaysia’s IJM Construction Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of IJM Corporation Berhad, has secured two contracts in Selangor – an RM831 million design-and-build turnkey construction contract for a new 312-bedded government hospital in Kapar, and another contract worth RM150.8 million for the construction of an office tower in Shah Alam for the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia, or LHDN in short).

Construction work for the hospital with specialist medical facilities is scheduled to commence in November 2022. It is expected to complete within 48 months by November 2026. The project is a 60:40 joint venture between IJM Construction Sdn Bhd and Ganda Imbuhan Sdn Bhd.

“We are proud to have been selected to build Hospital Kapar,” said Liew Hau Seng, group CEO and managing director of IJM Corporation. “IJM has been delivering important infrastructure in communities across the country for close to four decades, including a sizeable portfolio of healthcare related facilities.”

IJM Construction’s scope of works under the contract includes earthworks and ground treatment works, piling and foundation works, interior design for the main areas in the hospital, mechanical and electrical services inclusive of related medical equipment, information and technology works, external and infrastructure works, environmental and protection enhancement works, maintenance works, and construction of 120 units of staff quarters.

The development of Hospital Kapar and its specialist medical services aims to reduce the congestion of other government hospitals in the Klang and Shah Alam areas. Hospital Kapar will serve as a dedicated centre with its infectious disease facility for the surrounding Klang community.

“This award clearly demonstrates IJM’s strength within the healthcare sector, reflecting our outstanding track record in this area. We are committed to leveraging our experience in building and infrastructure projects and contributing to the future of healthcare in Kapar and the surrounding Klang community,” said Mr Liew.

Meanwhile, construction work for the 18-storey LHDN office tower in Shah Alam is scheduled to commence on 1 November 2022. It is expected to complete within 36 months by 31 October 2025.

IJM Construction has been building hospitals and healthcare-related projects, both on turnkey and conventional contracting basis, for 40 years. IJM’s work in the sector includes major general hospitals, integrated and specialist healthcare centres, complex renovations and additions, and facility upgrades.

Among IJM’s key healthcare construction projects include National Cancer Institute, Putrajaya; Perkeso Rehabilitation Centre; Putrajaya Hospital; Institute Jantung Negara (IJN) Kuala Lumpur; Teluk Intan District Hospital; and Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore.
