26 Jun 2023
IJM Construction Sdn Bhd has been awarded a RM653.6 million contract for the design, execution and construction of phase one of the Shah Alam International Logistics Hub.
The company said the project, commissioned by Global Vision Logistics (GVL), will establish the country’s first green-certified logistics hub, one of the largest in the Asean region.
Located on a 28.73-hectare site in Shah Alam, it will serve as a state-of-the-art logistics hub with connectivity to major transportation networks and key industrial areas.
“This project reaffirms our position as a leading player in the construction industry and showcases IJM’s expertise in delivering sustainable and future-ready developments.
“Our partnership with GVL allows us to create a world-class logistics hub that not only aligns with our net zero commitments but also sets new industry benchmarks,” said IJM group chief executive officer and managing director Lee Chun Fai.
Phase one of the hub includes a four-storey warehouse complex, a four-storey multi-level parking facility, and a one-storey office alongside ancillary buildings, including testing and commissioning works.
Construction is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of this year, with an estimated completion timeline of 26 months.
Upon completion of phase one in 2025, the development will have a total net lettable area of 2.8 million square feet.
It also will incorporate eco-friendly features from construction to operational phases, prioritising energy efficiency, resource conservation, and environmentally-conscious practices.
GVL chairman Oh Kim Sun said the hub will be a game-changer, demonstrating both companies’ shared vision for sustainable infrastructure that fosters operational excellence.
“Through the provision of a sustainable and technologically advanced platform, it will empower businesses to thrive while enhancing our capabilities and strengthening our position as leaders in delivering efficient and environmentally conscious logistics solutions.”
“The logistics hub is set to achieve the local GreenRE Silver Rating and gain international recognition from the Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE) Advanced and EDGE Zero Carbon certifications,” said Oh.
