Innovative ideas are reshaping the construction industry as they reduce environmental impact, increase productivity and improve safety. Digitalisation in the engineering and construction industry has been an increasing trend for many years; however, its speed is now accelerating. Digital transformation is more than simply adopting tech solutions.

Digital transformation changed how construction and infrastructure projects are delivered at HEB. It drives down costs and improves overall project execution and timeliness. We have seen an explosion in innovation throughout our history. As a key industry player, we will continue to leverage our expertise and proven track record to participate in mega infrastructure projects that build the nation. We remain resilient as we continue to support the nation’s infrastructure development initiatives.

The government needs to jump-start the economy. We foresee that the construction industry, particularly infrastructure development, will play an increasing role. This will provide the necessary larger downstream multipliers to the economy. As a key player already involved in existing nation-building projects, we will leverage our expertise and track record to be involved in future-anticipated projects.

Projects That Create a Significant Economic Impact

Ampang Line Extension Project

We were appointed as the Detailed Design and Supervision Consultant for the Facilities (Infrastructure) Works and System Works for the entire 18-km Ampang Line Extension. The project involved planning, design and construction works of the depot, stations, yards, pocket tracks, guideway, crossovers and other facilities. New technology has been adopted with strategies that minimise energy and water consumption at all stations.

This project benefits society and the nation significantly. The Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines connect to various transit systems and provide all stations with bus and taxi lay-bys for easy ride-hailing services.

Commercial and residential areas thrived economically through this project, which is a selling point for nearby developers.

 

Iskandar BRT

The Iskandar Region Development Authority (IRDA) identified Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) as the main mass transit mode for the Iskandar region in its Public Transportation Masterplan. This masterplan identified a total BRT network of approximately 386 km. Consisting of 10 BRT Busways, this network covers 90% of the Iskandar Malaysia region.

The BRT transport system consists of three high-capacity lanes and a dedicated busway. The project is the first in Johor and Malaysia’s first large-scale BRT project. The project is essential as it supports the efficient transportation of larger populations, especially within the city centre.

Dedicated bus lanes separate BRT buses from mixed traffic, allowing them to travel more quickly through Johor Bahru. BRT reduces the overall distance travelled by shifting commuters to high-capacity buses, which reduces traffic congestion.

Pahang-Selangor Raw Water Transfer Project

The Pahang-Selangor Interstate Raw Water Transfer Scheme (PSRWT) was completed in two phases. Each phase is capable of treating and distributing 1,130 million litres of water per day to target customers. Supporting the Ninth Malaysia Plan, the PSRWT project involved:

  • Constructing the largest water pumphouse in South-East Asia; and
  • Building a 44.6-km tunnel, which is the seventh-longest in the world.

PSRWT channels untreated water from Pahang to Selangor where it is then treated and distributed for use in the Klang Valley. It provides water for Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya residents who have been facing water shortages. Providing a reliable water supply delivers substantial benefits for public health, the economy and the environment.

Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant

The Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant (LRAL2) involves constructing water treatment and distribution facilities. It helps deliver an ultimate nominal treated water output capacity of 2,260 million litres of water per day.

LRAL2 treats raw water obtained from PSRWT and distributes it within Selangor and Kuala Lumpur to meet with the requirements of the water demand areas, particularly Hulu Langat, Ampang, AU3, Kuala Lumpur, Cheras, Sg. Besi, Bukit Jalil, Petaling and Puchong. LRAL2 serves to increase water-use efficiency in all sectors and ensure the sustainable supply of potable water. It will address and substantially reduce the number of people facing water shortage issues. Upon full completion, the water supply scheme will address the water needs of Selangor and the Federal Territory, benefiting 350,000 accounts and 1.8 million users.
