  • Sime Darby Property wins big in quality at CIDB’s QLASSIC Excellence Award 2017
ARA DAMANSARA, 22 August 2017 – Sime Darby Property solidified its position as Malaysia’s leading property developer in terms of quality at the QLASSIC Excellence Award 2017, bagging 13 quality building awards, making it the most awarded developer at the ceremony.

Sime Darby Property was awarded for its various products in townships such as Bandar Bukit Raja, City of Elmina, Bandar Ainsdale and Nilai Impian, among others. The awards included a commercial development in Ara Damansara by its subsidiary company, Sime Darby Brunsfield.

Sime Darby Property was among high-achieving developers and contractors of 43 projects which received awards for quality and excellence during the event organised by the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia (CIDB).

CIDB also presented Sime Darby Property with a special appreciation award at the ceremony, the QLASSIC Excellence Awards 2017 for being the developer with the most wins.

Sime Darby Property Chief Operating Officer, Dato’ Wan Hashimi Albakri said, “Quality is at the heart of what we do in Sime Darby Property because it is what our customers deserve. We would like to thank the CIDB for this honour, which is indeed a motivation for us to continually deliver products that are of the highest quality and standards to our customers.”

The Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) is a system or method to measure and evaluate the workmanship quality of a building construction work based on the Construction Industry Standard (CIS 7:2006). QLASSIC enables the quality of workmanship between construction projects to be objectively compared through a scoring system.

QLASSIC assessments are carried out through site inspection and is based on the principles of first time inspection. Construction works that are rectified after an assessment will not be re-assessed. The objective of this principle is to encourage the contractor to "Do Things Right the First Time and Every Time".

“We implement strict internal quality measures to complement the external assessment by CIDB through QLASSIC. These awards further highlight the outstanding efforts by the Sime Darby Property team, whose hard work and commitment has produced exceptional results despite a challenging market environment,” added Wan Hashimi.

Sime Darby Property’s QLASSIC results have shown tremendous improvements year on year, such as the reduction of non-compliance at the structural construction stage as well as a decrease in defects per unit. QLASSIC is one of the final stages in Sime Darby Property’s product quality assessment system, following its own stringent internal assessments.
