Malaysia-today.net reported about the dangers at Karamunsing Complex (Kompleks Karamunsing) today. The public has been concerned about the building and investigation was carried out by the owner.
The staff of 7,8 and 9th floor owner, Suria Group, reported cracking sounds inside the building and got worried. Suria then set out a reg. Professional Engineer Ir. Tsen to carry out investigation and declared that the 3 floors are unsafe. Holy cow! And it's the top floor! Wonder how are the floors beneath it? Tsen then presented his report to a community by DKK called High Risk Committee and below are the minutes;
"There were deflection as much as 3" or more on all the 3 floors. Certain crucial reinforcement were apparently not in the correct position resulting in very short lever-arm and hence structurally inadequate. With age and the effect of creeps, the deflection can only get worst. The 3 floors were reported to be in a "plastic" stage, and it was declared unsafe."
Whoa. Bad construction work by the builders for sure. It seems that it's the Block C that is having this problem here. Not sure about the rest of the blocks tho. But if I am one of the tenants, I would want to know my shop's structure too when I see this. xD
Hope there'll be some work to make it good again or people might start moving out man.
