With the Movement Control Order (MCO), Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO), Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) and its extensions by our Government recently to tackle the Coronavirus or Covid-19 pandemic, some of us have faced downtime in their daily operations and some have experienced delays in completing tasks and projects.

We are not in the position to give full financial assistance to our members to help with their survival under this trying situation, however, we hope this will help to reduce the financial burdens of our members.

PAM Council also hope that this fee reduction will bring more architects and graduate architects to join PAM as members and also to assist existing members in renewing their membership subscriptions. PAM always value its members’ participations, as the strength of our Institute is from its large membership base.

  • This is a follow-up survey by the PAM Research & Futures Committee to better understand the impact of the MCO on our firms.
  • Findings of our first survey (5-10 May 2020) were used to assist policymakers in formulating relief measures found in PENJANA.
  • In order to ensure accuracy of the survey, we ask only one Director/Principal per architectural practice to answer the survey. 
  • Thank you for returning your survey to PAM to help us better support Architects to steer us through these challenging times.
  • This survey is only open from 4 - 18 July 2020.
