Making A difference In The Community
As a leader in the engineering and construction industry for the underground and tunnelling works, MMC Gamuda KVMRT (T) Sdn Bhd (MGKT) pledge to implement long term strategies in expanding our efforts to care for the community and protecting the environment as well as to ensure the welfare of our employees and business partners are in harmony with our values.
While delivering our commitment to the community, MGKT is committed in ensuring its stakeholders and the community are well informed and share the same values as us in all our efforts in delivering our commitments towards the success of the KVMRT underground project.
In the interest of the environment, we commissioned an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study to identify the negative impacts and formulate mitigation plans, allowing us to incorporate environmental concerns into the design of the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line (SBK Line).
Complementing the EIA study, we introduced the Environment Management Programme to ensure that all EIA measures are strictly adhered to during the construction of the SBK Line. Silt traps are also implemented at designated areas to contain suspended sediments as a result of the construction activity. Apart from that, noise, dust and vibration are strictly monitored to ensure public interest are well taken care of.
A Visitor Centre for the KVMRT underground works was officially opened to the public with the aim to provide the latest project information and serve as a one-stop reference point for stakeholders. Some of the features of the Visitor Centre include a scale model of the VD TBM, interactive touch-screen media panel and video presentations, as well as graphic illustrations on SBK Line’s underground works milestones.
Other efforts include organising the inaugural “Semantan Portal Open Day” as a platform to foster closer ties with stakeholders and residents residing along Jalan Kota and its vicinity. Various stakeholders’ briefings were also held at our construction sites to brief them on the progress updates of our work.
AT MGKT, our identity is deeply rooted in giving back to and working conscientiously around our community. There are more known and unknown challenges that face our industry, community and world than we can count. It is vital for our organization to continue to innovate and grow within a sustainable framework to preserve our future as a company and as citizens. Simply put, we believe in giving back to the community.
