Contractor Malaysia | Civil & Structural | Mechanical & Electrical
Aathaworld is your preferred contractor in civil and structural as well as mechanical and electrical, we cover KL Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Klang Valley, Johor and other states of Malaysia. Every building and plant requires these categories of contractor in order to get it ready. First of all, foundation is the most important one that every building sits on it must have a solid one. Foundation is referred to reinforced concrete most of the time, it is of course including material such as steel, cement, additives and other elements; depending on the specification required. After that, the structural needs to be erected and this part involves also the similar elements, reinforced concrete, beam, column and those skeletons. Civil and structural contractor in Malaysia usually can do both foundation and structural of the building, including the roofing part, while earthwork some does and some does not. Most of the time, earthwork contractor is a specialized scope where they can easily conduct the soil test, advise how to carry out the soil work to make sure reinforced concrete foundation can be laid on a reliable earthwork underlayment.

Earthwork specialist normally will have consistent communication and discussion with civil contractor Malaysia in order to ensure their customer’s requirement can be met. For instance, a heavy usage plant will need a comprehensive soil test, higher specification when come to selection of concrete grade, soil grade with aggregates. If the soil is nearby the water source such as river, lake, the soil might be weaker and potentially sink over time; it requires more efforts to be allocated in order to achieve the equivalent result as per the one that located on a proper area without those factors. Structural contractor in Malaysia is equally important to work closely with other contractors from other scopes. The skeleton can be in pre-fabricated, pre-cast, modular, PPVC or conventionally, non-IBS (Industrialized Building System). There are good and bad to be precast or cast-in-situ, the logistics, time and labour costs are the three main elements. Pre-cast can be as precise as architect’s specification in the drawing and any error is minimal, if it happens to be, fabrication yard can still modify and rectify on the spot. However, civil contractor in Malaysia says that some designs are important to be pre-cast because of uncompetitive logistics cost, i.e. shape, weight, trailer size, highway road restriction.
There are also another issue arises when it comes to precast, that is the joint problem where waterproofing is a main headache to many building owners. Concrete takes time to harden, to cure and after two panels of concrete block cured, it is theoretically two pieces and even combining them has some weaknesses as time passes. This is why structural contractor Malaysia still prefer cast-in-situ to prevent unnecessary finger-pointing happens. Pre-fabricated structural and erection at site before premix concrete is casted on will have minimal joint issues, the monolithic theory is the key to many building when it comes to disaster such as earthquake (although Malaysia does not have such natural disaster). Without a doubt, the waterproofing is no longer a big problem to them if pre-fabricated system is being implemented. Further to say, structural and foundation are the soul of every building and it should be treated properly and seriously. Civil and structural contractor in Malaysia must have experience and qualified, they conduct the testing, discuss and coordinate with the architect, owner, engineer and other consultant from time-to-time. Many of them uses steel fibre as alternative when foundation requires strong and reliable material.
Modular house is not so popular in Malaysia due to the cost competitiveness compared to other materials, while the usage of lightweight block such as AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) is common because many conventional contractors are good in installing that since it is about the same with traditional brick and block but produced in a bigger size and lighter in weight. Since the inception of AAC, it has been saving the time and labour cost of project and subsequently reduce the property prices in the market. Mechanical contractor Malaysia does achieve cost effectiveness if they need to cooperate with any IBS contractors in the project because the handover schedule can be speedy. This is important because if handover can be carried as early as possible, the collection of scheduled payment can also be shortening up. Developer who is always the top of the supply chain prefer construction method that can help them save the time and cost benefited from there since they can sell the properties in a shorter construction period and gain the revenue recognition sooner.
