Driving real estate development in Malaysia

Malaysia’s property and construction industries continue to advance the country’s economy, as well as its social development

The Malaysian economy is at a period when it is able to grow sustainably, even during a global slowdown. At the centre of its ongoing development is the country’s robust property and construction industries, which, as well as attracting global investment, also makes social development a reality.

Integral to Malaysia’s ultimate progression into a developed economy is its commitment to corporate and social responsibility. Leading this approach is the Sunway Group, one of the most well-known and trusted conglomerates in Malaysia. The firm has gained its impeccable reputation through its continuous commitment as a master community developer to improve the lives of all that come into contact through a unique build-own-operate business model, powering its property and construction projects, the most notable being its modern and innovative townships spanning some 4,000 acres in Malaysia.

Bored Piling

What is bored piling?

Bored Piling is one of the common and modern-day techniques for building a solid pile foundation for construction of various building types and structures.

The Process
Bored Piling is a process whereby steel circular casings are installed into the ground by the simultaneous process of drilling and soil removal. This is then followed by the concreting of the piles, which then forms a strong pile foundation for the structure. This process is usually required when soil replacement instead of soil displacement is required.

Usage & Advantages
In many of today’s rapidly-developing cities, redevelopment and new construction works commonly require the use of bored piles. This is usually the case when surrounding site conditions, especially adjacent structures require minimal vibration and noise. This method also offers considerable flexibility in pile length, ground and soil conditions, without the hassle of large excavations and subsequent backfill of soil. To facilitate boring into hard rock strata, JF Foundation uses ancillary equipment such as the “Down-the-hole” hammer.

JF Foundation combines the strategic use of conventional or advanced hydraulic drilling rigs to carry out bored piling works according to the onsite soil composition, quality and project requirements.
