Pasdec to start 46ha Bukit Tinggi project next year

KUANTAN: Pasdec Holdings Bhd remains committed to its core strength in property-related activities such as construction and management of resorts and building.

Its projects include a tourism-related development on 46ha in Bukit Tinggi, Bentong, by 70%-owned subsidiary Bentong Aquarium & Sanctuary Park Sdn Bhd.

If all went well, construction would commence next year, Pahang Mentri Besar and Pasdec chairman Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob told reporters after the company AGM recently.

Asked if the project could take off following tremors recorded in Bukit Tinggi, he said its structural design would be styled after buildings in Japan so that it could withstand any future tremors.

Group managing director Yusof Ali Mohamed Zain said the project, costing about RM85mil, would feature an aquarium with 5,000 types of fishes including sharks and fresh-water fish.

“It will also include banquet and conference facilities that can accommodate up to 1,000 people,” he said.

Yusof Ali also said there were plans for a heritage water park comprising landscaped pools with streams, waterfalls and a tropical rainforest reserve with eco-park and botanical garden.

He added that it could provide education and training and had the potential to be a centre for captive rehabilitation and breeding programmes.

“There are plans to work with local learning institutions involved in aquaculture and veterinary sciences,” he said.
