The proposed new 126 bedded Pendang Hospital in Kedah shall be designed and constructed to achieve the CIDB MyCREST (Malaysian Carbon Reduction and Environmental Sustainability Tool) 1-Star rating for Design and Construction stages.
The certification of the hospital started off at its concept design stage and is aligned with the Ministry of Health's goal to green all its new and existing hospitals. This is done to ensure a reduced environmental footprint both in terms of the resources necessary to build the medical facility as well as the resources necessary to operate it. The building features enhancements in design that would improve the overall comfort and indoor environmental quality of the building, avoiding risk of Sick Building Syndrome and improving occupant productivity.
The construction is scheduled to be completed in December 2021.
