IJM wins major hospital and LHDN building contracts
Petaling Jaya, 18 October 2022 – Leading builder, IJM Construction Sdn Bhd (“IJM Construction”), a wholly owned subsidiary of IJM Corporation Berhad (“IJM”) has secured two contracts in Selangor – a RM831 million design-and-build turnkey construction contract for a new 312-bedded government hospital in Kapar and another contract worth RM150.8 million for the construction of a Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia (LHDNM) office tower in Shah Alam.
IJM Construction received a Letter of Award from Ministry of Works for the first contract early this week. Construction work for the hospital with specialist medical facilities is scheduled to commence in November 2022 and is expected to be completed within 48 months by November 2026. The project is a 60:40 joint venture between IJM Construction Sdn Bhd and Ganda Imbuhan Sdn Bhd.
“We are proud to have been selected to build Hospital Kapar,” said Mr. Liew Hau Seng, Group CEO & Managing Director, IJM. “IJM has been delivering important infrastructure in communities across the country for close to four decades, including a sizeable portfolio of healthcare related facilities.”
IJM Construction’s scope of works under the contract includes earthworks and ground treatment works, piling and foundation works, interior design for the main areas in the hospital, mechanical and electrical services inclusive of related medical equipment, information and technology works, external and infrastructure works, environmental and protection enhancement works, maintenance works and construction of 120 units of staff quarters.
The development of Hospital Kapar and its specialist medical services aim to reduce the congestion of other government hospitals in the Klang and Shah Alam areas. Hospital Kapar will serve as a dedicated center with its infectious disease facility for the surrounding Klang community.
“This award clearly demonstrates IJM’s strength within the healthcare sector, reflecting our outstanding track record in this area. We are committed to leveraging our experience in building and infrastructure projects and contributing to the future of healthcare in Kapar and the surrounding Klang community,” Mr Liew added.

Following the project win, the outstanding order book of IJM’s Construction Division remains healthy at RM4.6 billion, comprising a good mix of private and public sector as well as building construction and civil engineering projects that provide near-term earnings visibility.
