Default Build Costs in KL

Any body got a handle on build costs for residential buildings in KL?

In Oz it was $3k per sqm about 10 years ago. Recently in NZ I paid around $10k per sqm so keen to get understanding of Malaysia and in particular KL.

Doing 5 levels x 200 sqm so around 1,000 sqm

Was looking to use ICF but not sure how this will go in tropical humidity?

What I heard from a contractor boss is around RM 30-50 psf.
Dealing with local contractor really need a lot of own effort.

That sounds like around $500 sqm which appears very cheap. Just be worried about the quality of workmanship.

Agree with what you say about dealing with local contractors.

One of my friend struggle in building own house. Contractor are not responsible, always delay job and implementation are different from the initial plan.

Really need to find a reputable but price might a bit more expensive company assist you on monitor and make sure the job done same as what you planned.
