NUSAJAYA: UEM Land Sdn Bhd will be unveiling its Nusajaya Security Master Plan, making the city the first in the country to incorporate integrated security in its infrastructure planning.

Strategic marketing, corporate communications and facilities management director Zulkifli Tahmali said the “Blueprint” would cover the entire development.

He said feedback from potential local and foreign investors showed that security and safety was a prime concern.

“As master developer of Nusajaya City within the Iskandar Development Region (IDR), the company needs to address and prioritise the issue,” he said at the pre-launch briefing of the plan, which will be unveiled tomorrow at the two-day Nusajaya Security Conference 2008.

The plan was developed by Australia’s leading security consultancy services group Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) with GE Security as facilitator.

Zulkifli said the plan would cover the entire 9,712.45ha project including commercial buildings and residences.

“Investors and relevant authorities are happy that UEM is taking the lead to ensure safety in Nusajaya and it augurs well for its development and IDR in general,” said Zulkifli.

SKM global security manager Stephen Barlow said the main challenge was to develop a system to cover a wide area such as Nusajaya whose population was expected to swell to 500,000 by 2025 from 75,000 currently.

Meanwhile, GE Security general manager for Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia, Andrew Goodman said UEM, SKM and GE must ensure that the plan was consistent with and practical for the long-term development of Nusajaya.

He said the plan involved co-ordination, co-operation and collaboration between all relevant parties such as the police, emergency service providers, developers, owners, operators, designers, installers, suppliers and contractors.
