Structure Plan Kuala Lumpur 2020


The preparation of the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 is undertaken in the conviction that most of the policies of the 1984 Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan (KLSP 1984) need to be revised due to unprecedented economic boom and rapid changes in the last 20 years. Some of the major developments that have taken place were not anticipated in the structure plan. Development such as the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang and the transfer of federal government administrative functions to Putrajaya are anticipated to stimulate and influence future changes and growth. With globalisation gathering pace, Kuala Lumpur will encounter more challenges within a new international development era. The nation’s capital should be made ready for a competitive international role in the world of the 21st Century. In the light of hanges in the last twenty years and anticipated changes in the near future for a holistic development and good governance, it is timely to prepare a new structure plan for Kuala Lumpur.

Projek Pengurusan - Pendekatan Secara Common Sense



The objective of this dissertation is to provide a didactic paradigm for anyone controlling projects. For this purpose we are using the word project to mean any undertaking requiring concentrated effort. These projects can range from putting together a complex computer program including its implementation to executing a multi discipline construction project.  This document should serve as a guide to assist any Project Manager in correctly putting together the paperwork on a project. 

Through proper documentation and correspondence, it is possible to help avoid litigation.  This by itself will not circumvent legal proceedings however, with extremely well organized documentation and letter formation it will make litigation matters less painful to deal with.

This document will deal with construction projects. To utilize this system for other disciplines of project management it may be necessary to modify the terminology however, all of the fundamentals remain the same.
