Emkay to build green building in Cyberjaya

An office premise to be built by Emkay Group via Joyful Getaway Sdn Bhd will be the first building in Malaysia to be accredited with the internationally recognized Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) GOLD certification.

The RM120 million project which involves the construction of a 323,000 sq ft building, will also mark the first green building in Cyberjaya.

Emkay Group chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal told a press conference in Cyberjaya today said that the building would be leased out to Shell Shared Service Centre (SSSC).

Having a green building, he said, would not only increase the asset value of the property but also lower the operational cost through conservation of energy and water.
"The move towards green building is very important as it is going to provide a healthier and safer environment for the occupants.

"Green technology is the way of the future. It will change not only your approach towards the design and construction of property but also in the way we occupy and manage property," he said after the signing of the lease agreement between Joyful Gateaway and SSSC Kuala Lumpur Sdn Bhd.

Shell Malaysia chairman Datuk Saw Choo Boon said the signing of the lease agreement confirmed a planned change in Shell Malaysia's physical footprints.

The completion and occupation of the building by 2011 and the same of its accomodations in KL Sentral by 2012 would be the outcome of a rigorous evaluation process that is based on Shell's technical, environmental, social and financial requirements, he said.

"With these two offices, Shell businesses and service centres in the Klang Valley will occupy only two premises from the 10 physical locations today.

"This move will enable us to find synergies and cost savings through economies of scale. We will also be able to gain greater collaboration, thus the ability to respond faster to the needs of the customers in the region," he said.

The Cyberjaya building will have five levels of office space and three levels of sub-basement for car parking.

The original concept for the building was based on two individual office blocks flanking a central courtyard. However, due to the end-user's requirement, it has morphed into a U-shaped building where the connection between the two blocks are provided at the rear, thus maintaining the look of two separate buildings from the front.
