Ranhill plans to complete hospital project early


BY IZWAN IDRIS

RANHILL Bhd hopes to complete the RM687mil Serdang Hospital project by September this year, five months ahead of schedule, its president and chief executive officer Datuk Hamdan Mohamad said. 

He said work on the 620-bed teaching hospital complex, which also includes five residential buildings for medical staff, was almost 80% completed. 

Hamdan, together with the Ranhill board of directors and media representatives, were taken on a site tour and briefed by project director Wan Fauzi Wan Yahya.  

Fauzi said the Serdang Hospital project was a landmark achievement for Ranhill and a showcase for its innovative design and engineering capabilities. “Instead of the usual concrete structure, more than 6,100 tonnes of steel have been used in constructing the main 500m-long building, the first hospital in Malaysia to be built in this manner.” 

He said that to accommodate this, adjustments were made to the construction process, including the use of smaller steel beams, lightweight bricks and aluminium cladding to minimise the required piling work.  

“The result has been significant, both in terms of cost and time saving,” he said.
