FROM DREAMS TO REALITY
It has always been our dream to build a self contained transformation campus for at-risk youth of our community. Myskills acquired 31 acres of building land in Kalumpang, Hulu Selangor ( Kalumpang is 91 km from Kuala Lumpur and it is 50 minutes’ drive from Jalan Duta to Tanjong Malim Toll exit – PLUS highway and further 10′ minutes drive from Tanjong Malim toll exit). We bought the land together with 3 empty factory lots each located on an area of 23,000 sq.ft . The Kalumpang land and factory lots were bought on 26th September 2012 at a cost of RM 3.0 million from Danaharta. The current market price of the acquired land is estimated to exceed RM 7.0 million.
This land will soon be KALUMPANG YOUTH TRANSFORMATION CENTRE .
WHY DO WE NEED THIS CAMPUS?
Kalumpang Campus (Phase 1)
We plan to build 96 units of medium cost apartments. Each unit measuring 1000 sq.ft will accommodate 10 students. The unit includes :
1 Living Room
We intend to adapt Concrewall Building System (CBS) which is cheaper than the conventional construction material and the completion duration is 20% shorter than the conventional method. In Kalumpang Phase 1, we plan to accommodate 1000 male students pursuing skills training programme in Electrical Wiring, Mechatronic, Welding, and Air Condition Maintenance and Repairing. The Legal and Corporate Secretarial and School of Culinary targetting female students will operate at Port Klang Campus.
Refurbishment & Reconstruction of Factory Lots
We intend to reconstruct the existing factory lots with Workshops and Training Centers. The modification will include:

1st floor to 4th Floor
Each floor with 12 units of student apartments each measuring 1000 sq.ft will be designed with aims to promote family environment and communal values. Each apartment will accommodate 10 students. Total estimated build up area for each floor is approximately 10,800 sq.ft and total build up area will be 54,000 sq.ft for one block. Construction cost is based on RM 97.00 per Sq. ft. Each block is estimated to cost RM 6.0 million. Total budget for construction of two blocks which can accommodate 1000 students will be RM 12 milllion.
