One of the attractions in the Sunway Pyramid mall is their indoor ice skating rink and it has created so many pleasant memories for some of us.
However, a video showing the latest condition of the mall had gone viral on TikTok. The video showed the ceiling of the parking lot which was covered with moss.
The parking is allegedly located underground at Sunway Pyramid which is famous for its ice skating rink.
The video also showed the ceiling of the parking lot covered with water droplets, which causes the floor to be wet. It is understood that this condition can cause concrete to easily crack if left unattended or if no repair work is done.
In the comment section, netizens expressed their concerns not only for the safety of the people on the ice skating rink but also those in the underground parking lot. Netizens also asked if maintenance works were being carried out.
At the same time, some said that something unfortunate might happen if the Sunway Pyramid mall management doesn’t take immediate action.
“It will collapse, mark my words” a netizen commented.
Meanwhile, Sunway Pyramid mall has responded to the matter and reassured that the building’s structure is safe.
In an official statement on their Facebook page, they wrote “As a flagship mall under Sunway Malls, safety is our utmost priority. We assure you that although we are a building from the 90s, we have certified engineers who regularly inspect the building’s structural integrity, including inspection checks from relevant authorities.”
The management also explained that the moisture is due to condensation and there is no water contained inside the concrete or within the structure despite the current rainy season causing high humidity levels.
In other words, the safety of the building is not compromised under these circumstances.
“We will continue to improve the humidity levels in the basement car park,” it added.
