  2. 2. 2 lorem ipsum :: [Date] “Building a onstruction is like pregnancy period…” CHIN MIN NGEE PROJECT MANAGER OF DEKON SDN. BHD.KOTA DAMANSARA, MALAYSIA. 1 Can you elaborate on the role of a project manager in the building team?

Be able to CONTROL all the sub-cons and suppliers of the project, be able to TAKE CHARGE of. WHAT WAS YOUR GREATEST PROJECT ACHIEVEMENT? It depends, I would say completing a MEGA project of NATIONAL INTEREST, such as MRT job, which is currently the LARGEST in the country. By Chin Min Ngee On the scale of 1-10 how much do you love your job? And Why? 7 points and above. Why? There’s no WHY. If you put your heart into doing the job and you’re able to achieve the expected results, you will have your job satisfaction. Further, the joy of completing the job that one construct from scratch to handing over has no limits.
  3. 3. 3 lorem ipsum :: [Date] His greatest project achievement; Completing a MEGA project of national interest. 1 The construction site. Photo captured by Garnette Dayang Robert What kinds of problems/challenges/issues that you encountered during a project? There are lots of CHALLENGES in running projects. No 2 projects are similar in nature. Every project is NEW, construction industry is not like factory production. It's almost impossible to run line production like in a factory, where day in - day out one just produce the same product of a certain SIZE and SHAPE. In construction, all the ISSUES are DYNAMIC, ever changing, never passive. Drawings and specifications and BoQ can differ completely from each other, COMMERCIAL ISSUES may crop in and one cannot predict what may happen next. There are also problems that material price increases that a contractor is not able to make a claim for. Material SHORTAGES are quite frequent and we are subjected to the market forces in terms of pricing and design. Sub-contractors are also in short supply nowadays, which especially when there are more and more projects going around, the sub-cons quantity will still be almost the same and the skills will be shared and as more jobs, means more semi-skilled workers be forced to move up to do some thing that they are not ready, thus may affects the works quality. So, in nut-shell, the challenges are always there for a construction person running the job. As more jobs, means more semi-skilled workers be forced to move up to do some thing that they are not ready, thus may affects the works quality. So, in nut-shell, the challenges are always there for a construction person running the job.
