PETALING JAYA (Sept 20): Sime Darby Property Bhd (SD Property) has reopened its sales galleries and resumes operations at all project sites, in accordance with the Government’s recent easing of lockdown restrictions.
In a media statement today, SD Property said it will comply with all Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in support of the National Recovery Programme (NRP) as the minimum standard at all sales galleries and project sites to ensure the safety and health of its employees and visitors.
Sime Darby Property group managing director Datuk Azmir Merican said SD Property has enhanced its online sales and marketing capabilities since last year by developing in-house innovations such as online booking system and virtual sales gallery, among others.
At the sales galleries, prospective homebuyers will be assisted by fully vaccinated Sime Darby Property sales representatives donning Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). The sales galleries will be sanitised regularly, with common touchpoints cleaned immediately after each customer visit and deep sanitisation every week.
Members of the public intending to visit the sales galleries are encouraged to schedule for an appointment prior to their visit as only limited individuals are allowed in the galleries at any one time.
While construction in the property sector has been allowed to resume as at end-July 2021, it will take time for the SD Property’s project site operations to gain momentum as it will operate under strict SOPs.
The company has obtained approval from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (“MITI”) to resume operations at all of its active project sites in the country, paving the way to meet the RM2.4 billion sales target for this financial year.
“Beyond the closure of sales galleries during the lockdown period, our project sites were also faced with challenges to operate. This was not unique to SD Property as the ongoing pandemic has disrupted many industries across the globe, including the property sector.
Although the construction sector has reopened, it will operate under strict SOPs and take time for operations to get back in full swing. However, we anticipate several new projects to be completed by the end of the year which will see us launch new residential and industrial products in the market,” he said.
