PETALING JAYA: IJM Corp Bhd’s unit has secured a RM451mil contract to build a new corporate office in Kuala Lumput from UOB Properties (KL) Bhd.

The new contract win would boost the construction and property development group’s outstanding construction order book to RM9bil.

In a statement, IJM said its fully-owned subsidiary IJM Construction Sdn Bhd was awarded the job to build the new tower office in Jalan Raja Laut in Kuala Lumpur for UOB Properties.

“Construction of the building will commence in August 2017 and is expected to be completed 40 months from the commencement date. The building is expected to take its place in Kuala Lumpur’s skyline by early 2021,” it added.

The 29-storey and 193.5-metre-tall UOB Tower 2 would be located adjacent to UOB Malaysia headquarters.
