KUALA LUMPUR: PR1MA Corporation Malaysia will give priority to flood probability studies at its housing project sites in the future, says chairman Datuk Dr Fathul Bari Mat Jahya.
He said this was important especially after about 30,000 houses were affected in the floods that hit several states recently.
“We are thankful that PR1MA housing was not affected by the floods, but in the future, one of the things we need to give priority to is a strategic study on floods.
“This is important to ensure the probability of floods in PR1MA projects is remote,” he said when discussing issues on home ownership in the post-movement control order era on the Selamat Pagi Malaysia programme on RTM1 yesterday.
Fathul Bari said PR1MA was also refining several other aspects, including holding a live monitoring system at a project site to give buyers more confidence in the contractor’s ability to complete the project according to schedule.
“We will also provide more attractive offers in terms of facilities such as a gymnasium, clubhouse, and nursery in the PR1MA project, besides working with the Malaysian Youth Council to discuss the need to create housing for young people,” he said. — Bernama
