SMJK Heng Ee branch school building plan on track

Property News/ 6 November 2013 Leave a comment

THE SMJK Heng Ee branch school building project in Sungai Tiram, Penang, is moving ahead.

The project’s special committee deputy chairman Datuk Alex Ooi(pic), who is also a director of the Heng Ee School Board, said land clearing works were currently being carried out on the 3.23ha plot.

He said ground works for the branch’s administrative building and surrounding infrastructure would start within two weeks.

Ooi is also the chief executive officer of Ideal Property Group which is contributing the administrative building as a corporate social responsiblity (CSR) project.

He said the company would proceed with the construction of the building while waiting for the land title for the plot to be transferred from Koperasi Tunas Muda Sungai Ara Bhd to the Heng Ee School Board before starting work on the rest of the school.

He said there had been confusion that construction would be delayed due to the transferring of the land title.

Ooi said the title had to be transferred in order to obtain federal funding for the school.

He said that a subdivision plan had been sent to the Land Office and it was expected to be approved by February next year for the title to be transferred.

Architect Datuk Richard Jong, whose firm East Design Architect Sdn Bhd is offering free building consultation, said the state government and Penang Municipal Council had done their best to expedite the construction of the school.

“The initial design of the school which was approved in February this year was scrapped as it was not up to standard,” he said.

He added that the rezoning proposal for the school was done on July 19 and approved about two months later on Sept 17.

“Our objective is to try to complete the school as soon as possible so we will be able to take in the first batch of students in Jan 2016,” Jong added.

A Heng Ee primary school will also be built on an adjacent 1.62ha plot.
