Introduction

MEHB- Leading Niche Construction Management Player

Melati Ehsan (MEHB) is involved in turnkey construction, with a specialisation in construction management. We provide a complete solution for a construction project from inception to completion through careful planning, design, engineering, procurement and construction within specified financial and time constraints, which often includes a financing component.

Melati Ehsan is considered a leader in its field through:

  • Our team of highly experienced knowledge workers;
  • Our expertise in planning and designing;
  • Our resourcefulness in maintaining low overheads as we leverage on our sub-contractors’ core competencies to deliver complex projects with minimal expense; and
  • Our ability to conceptualise and negotiate on a wide range of construction work in collaboration with our business partners.

History & Background

The Melati Ehsan Group story: From humble beginnings.
Melati Ehsan Group was founded by Tan Sri Dato’ Yap Suan Chee in the 1990s in a modest bungalow on Jalan Titiwangsa. The Group got its start after being involved in the construction sector since May 1994 through the founding of Pembinaan Kery Sdn. Bhd. Tan Sri Dato’ Yap expanded the Group’s operations from general contracting to specialised construction management. The Group grew from strength to strength along the way through Tan Sri Dato’ Yap’s firm commitment to holding on to personal values such as honesty and integrity; a commitment to ethical practices, remaining humble throughout its growth; and a strong belief in investing in building mutually beneficial, long-term partnerships with contractors and associates.

A gap in the market
Melati Ehsan’s strength lies in carving a niche for itself through market research identifying a lack of professionalism in the project management industry. As a result, we’ve built up a track record of specialising in construction management to fill this pertinent gap in the market. Together with our roster of reliable sub-contractors with vast and varied specialties in the construction industry, we offer clients a range of services that include pre-planning, design, construction engineering and management expertise to provide the best possible outcome for any project, no matter the size or scope.

Milestones
The Group currently comprises of Melati Ehsan Holdings Berhad, Bayu Melati Sdn Bhd, Pembinaan Kery Sdn Bhd, Melati Ehsan Consolidated Sdn Bhd, and Melati Ehsan Trading Sdn Bhd.

Pembinaan Kery Sdn. Bhd. is a Class ‘A’ contractor with Pusat Khidmat Kontraktor, under the Ministry of Entrepreneurial Development since 2003, in addition to this, both Bayu Melati Sdn. Bhd. and Pembinaan Kery Sdn. Bhd. 

are also registered Class G7 contractors with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), which enables both companies to tender for government and private sector projects for any size and value of work.

In 2007 Melati Ehsan was listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange, firmly establishing our Group as Tier-1 contractors in the country. To date, our completed projects have a gross development value (GDV) of approximately RM4.6 billion. Currently, we’ve secured on-going projects that involve the construction of roads, highways and residential houses with a total contract value of approximately RM2.2 billion. Most of the construction projects carried out by our Group comprises of projects undertaken by government and quasi government bodies such as JKR, DBKL, PKNS, Jabatan Pengairan & Saliran, Majlis Perbandaran Selayang and TPPT.

Continued growth
Our goal for year 2020 is for Melati Ehsan to achieve at least RM500 million ringgit market capitalisation as we gear towards becoming one of the front runners in development in Malaysia. The Group is transitioning towards more design-and-build projects as part of its growth strategy and as a reflection to the current demands of the market; such as our recent focus on affordable housing. Our awareness of rising property prices and costs has made us determined to create affordable homes for a new generation – it’s our way of giving back to the community.

We remain steadfast in our guiding principles to maintain a high level of professionalism in our expertise and areas of specialisation. We pledge to uphold our ethics in ensuring the highest degree of integrity while demonstrating our responsibility and commitment to our clients, customers and associates in helping to build a better Malaysia.
