Located at the intersection of Jalan Robertson and Jalan Pudu in Kuala Lumpur, The Robertson is a mixed development comprising 793 serviced residences, 465 retail mall units and 24 shop lots.
Every home buyer looks forward to the day they receive the keys to their new home, commonly known as the delivery of Occupation Certificate (OC) in East Malaysia and Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) in other parts of Malaysia. The delivery of OC is a significant milestone for both home buyers and developers.
Gamuda Land, one of Malaysia’s leading property developers has built up a trusted track record of delivering quality developments in a timely manner. The OC for Ebena Tower at Bukit Bantayan Residences in Inanam was issued within two months of Certificate of Practical Completion (CPC) and recorded 4.03 million safe man hours to date. Construction for Cemara Tower and Dilenia Tower is on-going where full delivery is targeted in 2020.
Spread across 18-acre of breath-taking highland overlooking the South China Sea and a lush mountainous landscape, Bukit Bantayan Residences houses a total of 912 apartment units, 25 units of retail shop lots named Curve 25, ample indoor and outdoor facilities and many community gathering places.
“With Bukit Bantayan Residences, our aim is to create a community where our residents will have a strong sense of belonging, where families can grow up well and where one can grow old in. The key to this is being mindful. From development conceptualisation stage to design and planning, vendor and material selection, much thought has gone into every process to create a development where people feel a sense of belonging and want to be a part of,” said Lim You Kuang, General Manager of Bukit Bantayan Residences.
Backed by more than two decades of property development experience, Lim added that the timely delivery is credited to three main factors, namely tower
design with concrete wall instead of bricks; the application of enhanced, greener and faster construction method using aluminium formwork where formwork are pre-fabricated and recyclable; and consistent monitoring and evaluation of the building compliance against all authority standards as well as Gamuda Land’s GQUAS standard – an internal quality control system adopted from Singapore BCA’s CONQUAS benchmark to assess and audit the quality of the development.
“Before we adopt the new international benchmark of ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System, we have already long espoused mindful development principles such as working with nature, getting the places right to make the town work, and more. Our experience helps us anticipate challenges,
enabling us to prepare ahead of time, which have proven to be effective. Creating our developments in a sustainable manner is ingrained in our culture. With consistently high compliance to technical departments such as the Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (DBKK), Jabatan Air Sabah (JAS), Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) and other relevant authorities, we are able to deliver quality developments in a timely manner,” explained Lim.
A Community Centric Development
Another example which Lim quoted is the developer’s upfront investment to activate the community gathering places at Curve 25. Keeping to Gamuda Land’s placemaking strategy for all its developments, public spaces are created within Curve 25, as the heart of the development and surrounded by lush greenery, to bring people together. Retailers and service providers comprising F&B, childcare, wellness, grocery and services were secured before residents move in to provide ample conveniences. Within the podium, Gamuda Land also lay out facilities such as children’s playground, swimming pool, gymnasium, multipurpose hall and more.
“Besides physical conveniences, purchasers of Bukit Bantayan Residences will also have access to Gamuda Land Mobile Apps where they can easily manage their property through secured visitors management, facilities booking, payment of management fees or even connect with the retailers at Curve 25 for a comprehensive end-to-end experience,” Lim concluded.
