PETALING JAYA: Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) has commenced work on its Laman Lestari development with a groundbreaking ceremony of the Centralised Labour Quarters (CLQ) in Bandar Sultan Suleiman, Selangor. 

By establishing the CLQ in Bandar Sultan Suleiman, PKNS aims to support the national agenda spelt out in the Employees' Minimum Standards of Housing and Amenities Act 1990 (Act 446) for adequate provision of CLQs in Selangor.

Officiated by Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari, the event was attended by Human Resources Minister Sivakumar Varatharaju Naidu and PKNS chief executive officer Datuk Mahmud Abbas. Also present was Selangor State local government and public transport Exco Ng Sze Han.

“The groundbreaking ceremony of Laman Lestari in Bandar Sultan Suleiman marks a significant milestone in realising our vision and ensuring the welfare and quality of life for (the) workers,” Mahmud said.

The project, estimated to be completed in three years, with the award date set for 2024 and the certificate of completion expected in 2028, will occupy a land area of 4.35 acres and feature 336 fully furnished units. These units will be equipped with essential amenities such as light fixtures, fans, electric stoves, tables, chairs, beds, mattresses, pillows and lockers, ensuring a comfortable living experience.

Each unit within the CLQ will comprise three rooms, a bathroom and a dedicated dining area. Additionally, the development will provide a range of common areas, including a food court, prayer rooms and ample open space for indoor activities. Laman Lestari will have the capacity to accommodate 5,712 individuals, with a maximum of 17 occupants per unit. The project is estimated to cost RM120mil.

The groundbreaking ceremony also included the signing of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) among PKNS, Inter Great Sdn Bhd and PKNS FM Integrated Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of PKNS. The responsibility of managing Laman Lestari and overseeing the welfare of the workers residing in them will be undertaken by a joint venture between Inter Great and PKNS Integrated, via SPV Management Co. The signing of the MoUs was witnessed by Amirudin.

PKNS will ensure compliance with Act 446 throughout the construction and management of the development by incorporating careful assessment, giving special consideration to social impacts, integrating diverse amenities and facilities within the CLQs to minimise the necessity for workers to venture outside for their daily needs, and implementing stringent management protocols that prioritise the welfare of the workers residing in the CLQs.

The completed development facility will be leased on a long-term basis to SPV Management Co, ensuring a comprehensive approach to the management and operations. In addition, a range of digitalised management services are being planned such as workers' movement monitoring, prevention of document falsification, verification of workers' legal status, efficient rental management, meticulous inventory records, enhanced security services, comprehensive maintenance and regular on-site inspections. The completed CLQs will be available for rental at RM350 monthly per resident. 

PKNS will be exploring more potential collaborations with Inter Great Group of Companies in the construction of CLQs on several plots of industrial land totalling approximately RM1bil in value. These future projects aim to provide over 50,000 beds in various locations, including Shah Alam, Kota Puteri, Selangor Cyber Valley, Green Industrial Park Kota Puteri, Port Klang and Bandar Sultan Suleiman.
