(Filepic) Sultan Azlan Shah campus building of the University Pendidikan Sultan Idris.
Tanjung Malim: Despite just one month left to its defects liability period, the 58 setbacks found in
the newly completed Sultan Azlan Shah campus (SASC) at Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris have yet to be repaired by the contractor.
The defects liability period was supposed to have ended on Jan 31.
The RM438.6mil campus was completed in 2012 but the Certificate for Occupation was still not issued as at Dec 31 last year, even though the building had been occupied since February 2012.
According to the 2013 Auditor-General’s Report, the campus faced several post-construction problems such as poor installation of cooling towers and ineffective water proofing that affected its plaster ceilings.
There was also wrong installation of public address systems in its meeting rooms.
Its Building Automation System (BAS) and the Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA), valued at RM3.6mil, were also not fully utilised.
The report also revealed that the university had to pay RM24,000 to remove the public address systems after several meeting rooms did not require it.
In a reply to the audit dated Jan 30 this year, UPSI said the defect liability period would end on May 31 this year and all 58 defects would be fully fixed by the contractor within three months and 28 days.
