Matters Concerning SR Around BK

Got the following Map from the Draft Local Plan for MBSA, MBPJ & MPSJ. Looks like there is a proposed LRT alignment along the Bukit Jalil Highway with a station located near BK 1.

An issue of concern however, is the proposed development on the hill next to SR. Looks like the are some proposal shown in grey and white (bottom left hand corner of map) that would link Jalan BK 5B to Pusat Bandar Puchong. I wonder about the proposed junction next to the SR 2 site!?

Looks like Units 01 to 04 & 10 to 15 of Tower 1 have reached 4th Floor. Any one out there of these units and floors receive the progress billing from the developer yet? Units 05 to 09 are also catching up.

I also noticed that they had commenced works on ground beams for Tower 2. So, it should be coming up very soon.

Twenty days later from the last update, they have reached 3rd floor (Level 4). As Max commented, it is only the front portion of Tower 1. The works at the back portion of Tower 1 is still catching up at 1st/2nd floor.

Exciting times are here! It is so good to see progress on site... lets hope that they will keep it up.

Second floor coming up. I wonder if they have billed those purchasers on the First floor.

The other wing of Tower 1 also can be seen coming up

Its been a while since I last updated my blog on the progress of works, as works have been extremely slooooooooooow on site. Its one year already that they have wasted! Imagine we could have gotten our apartment 1 year earlier if they had started works at the end of last year. Now let's hope that they can complete the projects in the next 2 years.
17 September 2007; 1st floor beam formworks for Tower 1 can be seen.

By the way, there is still no name of the main contractor on the project signboard!

Around BK: Giant Hypermarket

The Giant Hypermarket in Bandar Kinrara, BK 5A has finally been completed and the grand opening is tomorrow, 23-08-2007. It will definitely increase the value of SR upon completion . . . . . . . . . . if it ever gets completed at all, as works on site is rather stagnent :(

Temporary Hoardings and Site Office up but still not much construction activities on site. Probably transition period as the piling contractor had completed the works and now waiting for the Main Contractor to come in ?

Construction Works to go Full Swing?

There seems to be more activities on site recently. Hopefully signs that they are proceeding full swing with the construction works after completing piling works. The site is now in the process of being hoarded. However still no name on the signboard who the Main Contractor is. Do you think Pembinaan Sierra Mal will contruct the building themselves?

Temporary Hoardings Are Being Done On Site

There are also some temporary kongsi and containers being placed at the SR 2 site. I think they would be housing their workers for SR 1 there. So I don't think they would launch SR 2 this year.

Was at the site on Sunday, there seems to be some sort of activities at the Tower 2 area as shown in the photos. I thought they are beginning to cast the floor slab and was wondering why they didn't start with Tower 1. However, a friend of mine told me that they are preparing to do a test pile.

Took the following site photos yesterday. There seems to be not much activities on site recently.
May be they are concentrating on the piling works for Tower 2, so as to be able to bill the purchasers. Even the steel exposed steel bars for the piles in Tower 1 are starting to rust. Should this be a concern?

Not much activities on site over the past few weeks. I think the contractor is rushing to complete the piling works for Tower 2 so that the developer can bill the purchasers of that tower as well.

Thought I noticed some earth movements at the slope next to Tower A! You people be the judge. Isn't the contractor suppose to provide some sort of slope protection upon cutting the slope?

Additional Electrical Points

Received the upgrading of electrical points from the developer on 30042007. They are offerring 3 packages for upgrading from the following existing electrical specification: -

Existing Electrical Specifications

Price Of The Three Packages

Request Form To Be Submitted Within 14 Days

Package A: RM 860.00

Package B: RM 1,410.00

Package C: RM 2,260.00

I must say the unit prices are rather high. Has the price of copper gone up so much ah!!! The weird thing is that they did not offer additional ceiling fan points which I think is extremely useful. We can't be expected to switch on the Air Cond all the time!!!

Also I noticed that the consulting engineers, E-den Konsult Sdn Bhd is not the same engineer on the project signboard, em . . . . .
