Repairing MCKK

Good news, perhaps.

It has been reported in mainstream press that the long-awaited repairs to the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) will begin mid-September.  A contractor has been identified for the RM1.8 million repair job which is funded by the Education Ministry.

    The discovery of white ants infestation so soon after the building was listed as national heritage strikes me as incongruous.

    I wonder about the details of the repairs and to what standard the tasks will be carried out. What about expert conservation consultations? Will the work process be properly supervised and documented according to preferred practices?

    What is the conservation policy for MCKK’s heritage, if there is one?
