The building below is the new Federal House also known as Mini Puterajaya, where most of the Federal departments are located.
This is one of those badly constructed buildings built by the Federal government.Sabah was not spared from this shameful actions of those given the projects.
Since its completion about a year ago huge chunk of tiles kept falling off its internal/external walls and ceiling.So far no serious accident or injury has occured.The next time you are there it may be advisable to use a crash helmet, just in case.Keep watching the ceiling, it may come down on you, if you are unlucky.
In fact most of the federal-funded projects seem to suffer similar problems.Schools and hospitals suffered the same fate.
There were huge hospitals and schools built in the most unlikely places. Where hospitals were short of doctors, schools faced similar problem, shortage of teachers and surprisingly shortage of students too.If that's not enough, sub-standard materials and shoddy workmanship added to the pain and misery to those who have to use such buildings.
Some of them were projects just to line somebody's pocket with easy money.Many were built during our former Prime Minister's time.The one below was probably planned much earlier but built under the current administration.
Note the scaffolding.They are now doing repair work on the
defects.They may have to remove the whole facade and replace
with lighter materials.More money?
