LABUAN, Dec 30 (Bernama) -- KC Project Management Services Sdn Bhd, a project management company that has been rehabilitating several abandoned housing projects in Sabah, wants to use its expertise to help resolve similar "problem projects" in other states, said chief executive Dr Robert K.C. Chin.
"It would be a pity if the experience and knowledge gained by KC is not fully made use of and extended to Peninsular Malaysia and Sarawak as we want to help reactivate the construction industry," he said in an interview.
Chin said his company had been appointed by Sabah's Minister of Local Government and Housing under the Housing Development (Control and Licensing) Enactment 1978 (Sabah) to manage, assume control and complete abandoned housing projects in the state since 1987.
He said KC Project Management Services had been instrumental in setting up a special purpose vehicle to rehabilitate and complete all abandoned housing projects in Sabah.
As a step forward to help revive abandoned housing projects, Chin said the Sabah state government also took a proactive step on Dec 31, 1994, to set up KKTP Sdn Bhd to provide funding and register and transfer land titles to the genuine house buyers.
The move has placed Sabah as one of the few states in the country with zero abandoned housing projects at present.
Commenting on a news report that 561 buyers of single-storey terrace houses in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, were in a fix as construction had stalled, Chin said his company would like to help them find a way out.
