MUI Properties’ Bandar Springhill combines prestige and exclusivity with serenity, community and sustainability
WHEN it comes to today’s homebuyers, an increasingly large number are more conscious of the decisions they make, especially if it touches on their environmental impact and carbon footprint.
With this in mind, MUI Properties Bhd has thoughtfully conceived the thriving community township project of Bandar Springhill. Strategically located between Seremban and Port Dickson, the township spans over 2,000 acres of freehold land.
For MUI Properties, what it means to be a responsible developer and township creator is closely tied to the ability to create a sense of place, where people and nature can come together and share a common ground to call home.
It is this rule of thumb that has led to the development of Bandar Springhill, which is designed with not only prestige and exclusiveness, but also serenity and community – and above all, sustainability – in mind.
Recognising that Bandar Springhill could have a significant impact on the environment years down the road, MUI Properties is future-proofing the township by creating socially responsible architecture and development that are efficient, sustainable and inclusive.
The property developer stresses that sustainability is its key focus, especially as environmental, social and governance principles (ESG) have now become part and parcel of the considerations for all businesses.
MUI Properties strives to ensure that the liveability of the township is enhanced and maintained throughout the generations. Apart from comprehensive facilities and amenities, Bandar Springhill reflects the developer’s keen understanding of the importance of quality education, particularly in the early years of a child’s life.
This can be seen via the Bandar Springhill UCSI International School, a Premier International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Malaysia that offers full-range IB programmes. The school’s strategic location within the township lets the community take advantage of the convenience of being able to attend world-class education.
On top of that, it also boasts the UCSI Hospital, a state-of-art medical facility that serves to benefit the community considerably, as it provides residents with the convenience and accessibility of having their healthcare needs easily met.
MUI Properties executive chairman and group chief executive officer Andrew Khoo Boo Yeow noted that MUI Properties also focuses on creating values for all stakeholders, which includes competitive pricing with a good return on value.
“We are focused on developing Bandar Springhill as a lifestyle-centric township. Our key focus will always be on meeting the needs of our customers. This is evident with the success of our launches, which saw very promising take-up rates. Ensuring the liveability of our projects is our priority and this can be seen with the integration of UCSI Hospital, a state-of-art medical facility with world-class healthcare treatment, a doorstep away.
“To cater to the growing needs of today's homebuyers, house designs are ergonomic, built with double volume ceiling space, rooftop gardens, in-house private gardens, plus natural lighting and ventilation solutions to reduce energy consumption,” Khoo said.
With the gross development value (GDV) of its completed projects standing at RM800mil, MUI Properties is currently working on four projects amounting to RM240.1mil in GDV, namely Phase E3A (Amarilis), Phase E5 (Nebula and Aurora 2), Phase E6 (Nova and Aurora), as well as Phase E7-3 (Peony 2).
Amarilis consists of 73 units of double-storey terrace houses with a total GDV of RM31.3mil, whereas the RM70mil GDV Nebula and Aurora 2 comprises 221 units of double-storey terrace houses.
In addition, Nova and Aurora consist of 272 units of double-storey terrace houses with a total GDV of RM106.2mil, while Peony 2 is valued at RM32.6mil in GDV for 70 units of double-storey terrace houses.
Looking towards the future
Apart from its current projects, however, MUI Properties already has big plans underway via several separate developments.
Most notably, these include an industrial development with a GDV of RM170mil, as well as additional double-storey terrace houses amounting to RM215mil in GDV.
Acknowledging the importance of ESG considerations, MUI Properties actively plays its part by ensuring it has a benchmark upon which future progress can be measured and tracked.
This is done via data collection on carbon emissions to evaluate and empower the decarbonisation of its operations, supply chains and portfolio.
The vision, for the developer, is to create a healthier lifestyle for the communities in which it operates by reducing carbon emissions.
Believing in walking the talk, MUI Properties not only has waste classification to facilitate recycling and circular practices such as repurposing palm tree bark waste by converting it into fertiliser but also has its in-house edible farm, where harvested products are then distributed to the community.
This is in addition to its corporate social responsibility initiatives.
Aside from its environmental and social commitments, MUI Properties also has a strong governance structure in place to ensure a stable foundation for growth.
Among such policies are the Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Policy, the Corporate Standard Operating Procedures and the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (Act 709).
