Eco-friendly industrial property from Tangkas Arena

PETALING JAYA: Eco-friendly, energy conservation and cost savings — these are the key elements behind Tangkas Properties Sdn Bhd’s (TPSB) freehold, lightindustrial park dubbed Tangkas Arena in Subang Jaya’s UEP Industrial Park.

Comprising 17 uniquely-designed factory units over four acres, Tangkas Arena is set to stand out as one of the Klang Valley’s more innovative light industrial developments, with photovoltaic cells for solar power, thermal insulation systems and rainwater harvesting tanks.

Tangkas Properties is the property development arm of Mudahjuta Industries Sdn Bhd, an insulation specialists and fabric manufacturer. Tangkas Arena is the company’s maiden effort in property development.

TPSB managing director Yogi Wong (pix) said, solar power generated from the photovoltaic cells on the roof of each unit would be fed back into the country’s national electricity supply grid for a nett deduction on monthly electricity bills.

“This is through participation in the Malaysia Building Integrated Photovoltaic (MBIPV) programme promoted by Pusat Tenaga Malaysia and supported by the United Nations Development Programme,” said Wong.

“By moving into our units, companies will be able to save tremendously on their electricity bills,”
she added.

“The next unique feature is the rainwater harvesting system, where rainwater harvesting tanks will collect and purify rain water for everyday use, thus allowing companies to save considerably on water charges,” said Wong.

Besides this, the units will also be equipped with Dow Styrofoam insulation to reduce the heat entering the building thus reducing energy consumption for cooling purposes such as air-conditioning systems.

“Increasing global concerns over the environment led us to embark on this project that not only helps us to utilise what is readily available, but also to offer cost advantages for companies that operate from our units,” Wong offered.

Tangkas Arena units are priced from RM2.88 million to RM3.3 million, with 11,000 sq ft of built-up space. With a gross development value (GDV) of RM45 million, the project is expected to be completed within the next three years.

The 3-storey units will offer two production levels with high floorto- floor clearance and connected by a twotonne cargo lift.

All three floors will be constructed using solid C30 grade concrete with enhanced resistance to abrasion.

While the first two floors cater for production, the third floor is designed to be versatile so that it can serve as a corporate office or to house support activities.

Tangkas Arena units said Wong, would suit a wide range of industries such as food and beverage, preparation/distribution, printing, studio/ production houses or research laboratories.

The industrial park is accessible via the Elite, Kesas, Pantai and North-South expressways.
