SERDANG, 18 Oct - The initial process for the construction of the Warisan Budi Clock Tower is underway. The process of soil assessment before the construction has also been carried out at the construction site which is at the field facing the UPM Main Hall.
The assessment session is to ensure that the ground structure is sturdy enough for the construction of the clock tower. This is also to avoid risks in the future.
