Construction company MCC Overseas (M) Sdn Bhd (MCC Malaysia) has obtained an 89% Quality Assessment System in Construction (QLASSIC) score for the construction of The Face 2 Platinum Victory Suites. This is the highest rating to have been recorded thus far for high-rise residential developments, ever since the QLASSIC system was first introduced in 2007.
Developed by Platinum Victory Property, The Face 2 Platinum Victory Suites is the second phase of The Face Platinum Suites, and is strategically located on Jalan Sultan Ismail. Completed in July 2022, it is a 51-storey luxury condominium offering a total of 1,025 units, alongside a range of facilities. These include an infinity pool with a 180° view of Kuala Lumpur’s city skyline, as well as a sky lounge with private dining areas.
Managing director of MCC Malaysia, Li An Wei said that the company is pleased to have set this record score as the QLASSIC assessment is not an easy process; it requires strict, rigorous, and meticulous evaluations of over 600 materials and 300 units. Briefly, QLASSIC is a construction industry standard that was introduced by the Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia (CIDB) to evaluate the quality of workmanship for building construction work, as per the requirements of the Construction Industry Standard.
“We have reached this historic milestone with The Face 2 Platinum Victory Suites project thanks to the passion and professionalism the team has demonstrated, and to receive the highest ever QLASSIC score is a testament to the company’s commitment and exemplary pursuit in workmanship quality in building construction,” said Li, adding that the achievement will motivate the team to continue striving for excellence.
Meanwhile, the co-founder of Platinum Victory Property, Datuk Alex Tan Ai Chong said that his company also shares in the delight of MCC Malaysia’s achievement. “We applaud their performance and are proud that the construction for The Face Suites development has received the QLASSIC certification with the highest score ever recorded under the high-rise residential category,” he said.
Finally, the chief executive of CIDB, Datuk Ir. Ahmad ‘Asri Abdul Hamid said that MCC Malaysia’s achievement will serve as a stellar example in the industry to motivate other developers and construction companies in their pursuit of top-notch workmanship quality. He also noted that the average QLASSIC score has increased since the standard was introduced to the market, which indicates that the quality of buildings in Malaysia has been improving.
“The current average scoring [for high-rise residential] is 76%. I would think anything above 75% is good, and anything above 80% is outstanding,” Datuk Ir Ahmad ‘Asri remarked, adding that prior to MCC Malaysia’s QLASSIC score of 89%, the highest was 86%.
