Kinta Properties Starts Safe Return to Construction 

Perak property developer Kinta Properties has restarted site operations, after successful Covid-19 testing of more than 140 construction workers on its site.

The developer is forging ahead developing its master planned town Bandar Baru Sri Klebang and Taman Meru Mentari in Ipoh after successfully testing subcontractors and getting the green light to start work.

The company is following the operation policies laid out by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) and Malaysian National Security Council (MKN).

With nearly 300 homes under construction in Ipoh, Kinta Properties Executive Director Edwin Tan confirmed the company is now operating in line with recommended guidance and procedures: “We are committed to do everything it takes to safely begin the process of recovery. Our priority is to ensure that we deliver to all of our homebuyers. We know that when we reopen property, we can create a multiplier for growth across architecture, planning, engineering, distribution and construction industries to help rebalance our local economy.”

He added: “Safety and affordable housing is more important and we’ll be reflecting that with new designs and processes. We have also made the provision for additional care facilities on site and across show homes.”

After the construction sector was shut down on 18 March, Kinta Properties stopped work across its sites, closed its show homes and headquarters’ staff worked from home. The property developer is working with all its contractors and subcontractors to reactivate full operations.
