Slated to be completed in 2019, HSL’s new headquarters and accompanying neighbourhood shopping mall on the lower three floors is shaping up to be one of the most modern buildings in Sarawak.

When completed, it will feature state-of-the-art green architecture and facilities to serve the needs of the company as its base of operations from levels five through 10.

La Promenade Mall, the services-oriented neighbourhood shopping mall located on the first three floors of the building, will have the dual benefits of being situated alongside the Kuching-Samarahan Expressway, and becoming the gateway to the bustling community.

As the construction company recognises the importance of community being the heart of La Promenade’s masterplan, the mall was conceptualised for the convenience of the residents of the development as well as the staff members working there.

The mall has 11,244 square meters of space and was designed to focus on services and basic needs which includes tenants such as an upscale supermarket, bank, clinic, pharmacy, gym, personal care as well as food and beverage outlets. The fourth floor of the building consists of office suites for rental and lease.

The site is just 50 meters after the bridge from Tabuan Jaya, while the expressway leads to Samarahan — Sarawak’s fastest developing township — and is parallel to the Pan Borneo Highway. The area will also be served by the recently announced Kuching LRT.

The building is 15 minutes by car to Kuching International Airport, Swinburne University of Technology and two public universities. A stone’s throw away is the Sarawak General Hospital’s Heart Centre.

annual report 2017

HSL has published its annual report for the year 2017, which saw HSL Group revenue surpass the previous year and
reach RM505.91 million with net profit before tax at RM62.63 million.

Compiling the impressive undertakings of HSL Group which spans numerous industries and include marine engineering, civil engineering and construction, the annual report for 2017 once again recorded a healthy balance sheet and several other positive achievements for the company.

Revenue and profit before tax for 2016 were RM498.55 million and RM75.17 million respectively. The higher revenue is mostly
attributable to the second half of 2017 seeing increased momentum on the two mega projects secured in 2016, that is, the Kuching Centralised Wastewater Management Project, Phase 2 and Package 7 of the Pan-Borneo Highway Project.

Revenue from property development activities in 2017 reached RM76.09 million, up from RM63.07 million in 2016. If last year’s report was celebrating mega-project procurement successes, this year’s report is celebrating getting those mega-projects off the ground.

Our order book now stands at RM3 billion of which 90 percent, or RM2.7 billion, was outstanding as at 31 December 2017. This translates to strong revenue inflows ahead. While 2016 was remarkable for adding RM1.94 billion of new projects, 2017 still saw procurement successes as we added RM575 million of new projects to the books.

On a lighter note, the annual report also celebrates the wonderful staff of HSL throughout Sarawak, with some 40 long service awards given out for those who have been in service with HSL for 10, 20, 25 and 30 years. As usual, HSL also hosts an annual dinner for the office and site staff to acknowledge their hard work throughout the year and the long service awards are a major highlight of the night.

Besides departmental gatherings, we encourage staff participation in public social events and also sponsor regular badminton sessions for staff to promote fitness, interaction and fun outside of work.

Big crowds at new Samariang Aman 2 showhouse

Hock Seng Lee Construction (HSL) debuted a new showhouse at the well-established Samariang Aman 2 to big crowds here on April 14 and 15.

The nature inspired home, located within the scenic residential development, pulled in more than a thousand visitors over the weekend.

The showhouse features wide open spaces punctuated by colours of the sea, rivers and mountains nearby. Furnitures and finishings seeks to create a serene, clean and exclusive look.

Despite the current soft market, HSL’s emphasis on landed properties — in a time when most new launches have been apartments — have resulted in continued positive feedback and brisk sales.

Ninety per cent of an earlier phase launched a year ago had been sold out, senior property development manager Tay Chiok Kee said.

“Over 10 years, we have built 955 houses in Samariang. We sell out every phase. In 2011, Samariang Aman won the Outstanding Landed Residential Development award from the Sarawak Housing and Real Estate Developers’ Association,” Tay said.

“This weekend’s turnout is indicative of locals’ confidence in HSL homes.”

He confirmed HSL had plans for Samariang Aman 3, and that it would be roughly another 10-year development cycle.

The just launched showhouse will remain open daily until Sunday (April 22), after which viewings will be by appointment.

Over the weekend, HSL also organised a colouring contest for children aged seven to nine years old, and 10 to 12. In the younger category, Nur Izzafira Qarin Iswandy won first place, followed by Ko Kit Hieng and Jayden Chong Yan En. In the older category, winners were Chew Boon Choi, Chen Szi Why and Cherilyn Vong.

The kids took home a total of RM1,400 in cash prizes.

Meanwhile, results for HSL’s #SamariangAman2 photo contest will be announced on Saturday, April 21. Winners for cash prizes worth RM1,500 are being determined according to photo composition and creativity.

HSL corporate affairs manager Shirley Loo said the marketing campaign was designed to create fun activities for the local community, and promote a sense of pride among residents.

“The photo contest really shows off how beautiful Sarawak is. We built these houses to wrap around the natural features of the landscape. From street level, houses, particularly corner units, are accented by Gunung Serapi and Santubong,” Loo said.

“From high-angle drone shots, the rivers and surrounding greenery really come across well. Residents here know part of the appeal of Samariang Aman are the views, and not just easy accessibility to workplaces, schools and commercial opportunities.”
