Multi-million ringgit facelift for Centre Point Sabah

KOTA KINABALU (Mar 15): Centre Point Sabah (CPS), one of the state's largest shopping complexes, will spend several million ringgit to refurbish the 22-year-old shopping mall.

Pan-Pacific Construction Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Andrew Chang Chi Ming said work is expected to start soon and completed in four months.

"Once refurbishment is completed, the CPS complex will have a different external appearance in the day and at night.

"The colourful signages and advertisements will bring a gleaming brightness to Kota Kinabalu City. The draping of greenery on the external wall of the complex will reflect our response to global eco-friendly environment.

"We're going to use energy-saving LED lightings, insulated aluminium grilles and emulated timber. All these are environment-friendly building materials.

"This shows the CPS is spearheading the go-green for Kota Kinabalu City," he told reporters here on Thursday.

Andrew said the CPS's interior would also be upgraded with a new look for the food court, turning CPS more competitive than other shopping malls in Sabah.

"The CPS complex will maintain its operating hours during the refurbishment period and we will ensure strict safety precautions in and around the worksites.

"We'll try our best to keep any inconvenience to the minimum," he added. — Bernama
