KUB Builders, a subsidiary of KUB Malaysia Bhd, will be responsible for the construction of a new 3.96km third runway, parallel taxiways, connecting taxiways and other associated works.
"We won the contract after a tight contest from several competitors. Though it is a challenge for us, our goal is to complete the whole project within its timeline and at the same time to get the job done well in all aspects," said its group managing director Datuk Mohd Nazar Samad in a statement today.
"We are very delighted to be a part of making Kuala Lumpur an aviation hub as it will be the biggest low-cost hub in the region. We fully support the government’s agenda on boosting Malaysia’s tourism sector which will significantly contribute to the country’s economy," he added.
According to the statement, the project is expected to take 16 months to complete and will further consolidate KUB’s business in the Property, Engineering and Construction sector of operations.
It will also strengthen its market presence and continue to diversify its portfolio as well as ability to seek out similar projects in the future, it said.
