Editorial

The International firm take their first tower in Malaysia to its capital 

A 30-storey building, fronting the street Jalan Sultan Ismail, will be the first building in Malaysia created by internationally acclaimed New York architects Kohn Pederson Fox (KPF). The Class 'A' Green building, close to the iconic Petronas Towers, is destined to be the Malaysian headquarters of leading property and real estate group Mulpha Properties.

Engineering consultancy firm Web Structures have just been awarded the contract to see the 270,000sq ft of office space available and five basement-parking levels to completion.

Web Structures group director Dr Hossein Rezai Jorabi said: “We are extremely pleased to have been invited to take part in this project, which is our first collaboration with KPF. It is the latest in a number of major building projects in Kuala Lumpur that we have been involved in and we will be using our local knowledge to deliver engineering solutions to help make this another landmark building in the city.

“KPF has a fantastic reputation for designing truly original buildings across the world, including The Pinnacle in the UK and the Shanghai World Financial Centre. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with their design team on this project, their first in Malaysia.”
