KUCH­ING: Naim Ga­muda (Naga) JV Sdn Bhd added an­other feather to its cap when it won the Le­buhraya Bor­neo Utara’s (LBU) project as­sess­ment sys­tem (Pro­jas) award for its Pan Bor­neo High­way work pack­age.

Naga’s work pack­age, WPC 04, a 89.4km sec­tion from Pantu Junc­tion to Batang Skrang, Sarawak, was ad­judged the ‘Best Over­all Per­form­ing Works Pack­age’ for the Pan Bor­neo High­way project, for the pe­riod July to De­cem­ber 2018.

Pro­jas is a tool to mea­sure and eval­u­ate the works pack­age con­trac­tors ( WPCs) on their con­struc­tion man­age­ment com­pris­ing 10 as­sess­ment com­po­nents which in­clude among oth­ers, works plan­ning, risk, con­tracts and health, safety en­vi­ron­ment and qual­ity.

Ac­cord­ing to Sim Kwong Yong, vice pres­i­dent of oper­a­tions for Naim Group of Com­pa­nies, no ef­fort was spared for the project.

“The Pan Bor­neo High­way project is an im­por­tant one for all Sarawakians. As such, we were not only driven by our quest for ex­cel­lence but more so, by our pas­sion to build some­thing that all Sarawakians can be proud of,” said Sim.

“In ad­di­tion to work stan­dards for the project, we are also com­mit­ted in up­grad­ing the in­dus­try stan­dards in var­i­ous ar­eas re­lated to the con­struc­tion in­dus­try, such as qual­ity, safety, health and en­vi­ron­ment (QSHE).”

“One of our key ini­tia­tives is the es­tab­lish­ment of our Naim Ga­muda Train­ing Cen­tre for Con­struc­tion Safety at Te­mu­dok, Sri Aman, which can ac­com­mo­date up to 80 trainees. The cen­tre serves as an in­te­grated hub to pro­vide train­ing on QSHE aware­ness. Train­ing is given to work­ers and third-party con­trac­tors for both skilled and non-skilled work­ers.”

Sim thanked that Project De­liv­ery Part­ner LBU for its guid­ance and all team mem­bers who have helped to make this achieve­ment pos­si­ble.
