Today the NST's Business Times mentioned about one of the tenders that we are currently participating in.

Here's the article in BTimes - or just scroll down below.

PERDANA ParkCity Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the timber-based Samling group, has shortlisted seven companies, including one from Japan, to build a RM250 million hospital in Desa ParkCity in Bukit Menjalara, Kuala Lumpur.

They are Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd, Crest Builder Holdings Bhd, Putra Perdana Construction Sdn Bhd, UEM Construction Sdn Bhd, Bina Puri Construction Sdn Bhd, Ahmad Zaki Construction Sdn Bhd and Japanese construction giant Obayashi Corp.

Sources familiar with the plan told Business Times that tenders for the 10-storey, 300-bed hospital, to be known as Sime Darby Medical Desa ParkCity, will close this Friday.

"Perdana ParkCity will award the contract in April or May based on merits, technical expertise and track record. Construction will start by May or June, and be completed in 2012," one source said. Perdana ParkCity group chief executive officer Lee Liam Chye declined to comment when contacted. It is understood that the proposed hospital will be built on a design, build and lease concept. It is expected to begin operations by early 2013, a year later than initially planned.

It will cater for the Desa ParkCity township and nearby areas such as Kota Damansara, Damansara Perdana, Bandar Sri Damansara, Mutiara Damansara, Bandar Utama, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sri Hartamas, Mont'Kiara and Bukit Damansara. The source said the new hospital, which will have 60 specialist clinics and six operating theatres, will be leased to the country's largest conglomerate, Sime Darby Bhd, for 20 years.

It will be the third full-fledged hospital operated by the Sime Darby group, which is looking to grow its healthcare business to ride on the recession-proof medical industry. The group currently owns and operates the 393-bed Sime Darby Medical Centre (previously known as the Subang Jaya Medical Centre) in Subang Jaya and the Sime Darby Specialist Centre Megah in Petaling Jaya. It also owns and operates the Sime Darby Nursing Health and Sciences College managed by Sime Darby Healthcare.

Perdana ParkCity is the master developer of the 192ha Desa ParkCity township, which will have some 7,300 residents when completed by 2015.
