FVD is led by David Yam who has over 20 years of experience in the field of construction and property development.
David was formerly co-principal responsible for the planning and construction of the award-winning The Haven Lakeside Residences, the first upscale high-rise condominium project in Ipoh. The RM230mm residential development consists of 3 blocks of 26-storey condominium towers housing 489 units and was completed in 2013. Prior to this, David also led the planning, construction and completion of the 576-unit Permai Lakeview Apartments, also in Ipoh. Permai Lakeview was completed in a record time of 24 months, one year ahead of schedule.
David began his career in Sunrise Berhad in 1989 where he quickly rose to become a key member of Dato Alan Tong’s central management team responsible for the construction of Mont’ Kiara Pines, Sunrise’s first condominium development in Mont’ Kiara. After his stint at Sunrise, David established and led a Class “A” construction firm (now known as G7) for 14 years. The valuable experience he gained in construction, contracting, value engineering and contract management marked the basis for his subsequent foray into property development.
David also acted as a key advisor to Bina Puri Berhad in its successful acquisition, planning, development and marketing of the recently completed mixed development project comprising condominiums and a retail mall known as Main Place located in USJ21, Selangor. In his role, David played an instrumental role in the successful public tender and subsequent revival of this twice-abandoned project in Subang Jaya.
David holds a Bachelors of Civil Engineering degree from University of Queensland, Australia and C. Dip. (Accounting & Finance) (ACCA) (UK). He is a registered member of the Board of Engineers, Malaysia and the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia. He is also a registered member of Engineers Australia.
