Bina Puri looks to Mideast, Thailand for new jobs

Construction outfit Bina Puri Holdings Bhd hopes to maintain the rate of new contracts this year by securing RM2.5 billion worth of work.

Group managing director Tan Sri Datuk Tee Hock Seng said the group is leaning towards the Middle East and Thailand for new jobs this year.

This is because he does not expect major projects to be announced in Malaysia, apart from the RM40 billion mass rapid transit system.

Bina Puri anticipates more jobs in Saudi Arabia, where its government has announced new infrastructure projects worth US$60 billion (RM183.6 billion).

It won its first project in Saudi Arabia late last year, a RM5.7 million storm water pipeline project.
"Last year was an exceptionally good year for us with both the the Ampang light rail transit line extension and the new low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang coming on board at the same time," he said.

In 2010, the group secured projects worth RM2.5 billion.

Other projects it won are the Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway privatisation job as well as building ramps and a main line bridge for the Eastern Dispersal Link in Johor.

In an interview with Business Times last week, Tee said Bina Puri has bid for building and infrastructure projects worth over RM2 billion, in Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei and the Middle East.

So far, it has won a RM62.8 million contract for structural and architectural works for Phase One of a condominium project in Thailand.
