KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 28): Sunway Construction Group Bhd’s (SunCon) unit has been appointed the project delivery partner for the expansion of a nine-storey commercial development to the existing Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya, Penang.

SunCon said Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd (SCSB) was awarded the RM274 million contract by SA Architects Sdn Bhd, on behalf of Sunway REIT Management Sdn Bhd, the manager for Sunway Real Estate Investment Trust (Sunway REIT).
