KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 31): Construction services firm GDB Holdings Bhd has clinched a RM306 million project to develop a private hospital at Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

In a statement on Wednesday, GDB said the project includes execution, performance, design, construction, completion, commissioning of machinery and equipment, and maintenance of the private hospital building.

The construction of the hospital will be carried out over a period of 25 months, commencing on March 16, said the group.
