A group of 34 students and 3 lecturers from QS Department, KLT visited a residential construction site at Bukit Penyau area on 12th of August 2022. The site visit aims to enhance students’ understanding on construction processes and different types of building materials.
Upon arrival to the site, Mr. Ting, the project manager of Takexcel Sdn. Bhd., gave a short brief about the project. According to Mr. Ting, Takexcel Sdn. Bhd. secured the contract on August 2021 and is expected to be completed by June 2023. Students were exposed to the retaining wall, timber formwork, reinforcement bars and many others. The students had the opportunity to observe the operation of machineries such as crane, concrete pump and bending machines during the site visit.
The site visit was indeed beneficial as students had the chance to ask questions and solve their doubts when seeing the actual site activities. As a token of appreciation, KLT presented Mr. Ting and his colleagues some souvenirs.
