1MDB award jobs to local and foreign companies

KUALA LUMPUR: 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) has announced the appointments of several local and foreign companies to develop the Kuala Lumpur International Financial District (KLIFD).

Eleven companies covering various fields including sustainability, infrastructure engineering, landscape planning and traffic management were appointed based on their experience and track record, 1MDB said in a statement yesterday.

1MDB Real Estate Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Datuk Azmar Talib said the selection process has been a thorough and transparent one.

"In addition, we engaged potential vendors in continuous dialogues to ensure seamless synergy with the team," he said.

The successful consultants are EDP Consulting Group Sdn Bhd, and Buro Happold Consulting Engineers (UK & USA) as consulting engineers, Perunding Trafik Klasik Sdn Bhd as traffic management consultant and Perunding NFL Sdn Bhd as quantity surveyor consultant.

The others are Akitek Jururancang Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Grant Associates (UK) as landscape architect consultant, and for the land surveyor part, Jurukur Perpaduan Sdn Bhd and Jurukur ESA Sdn Bhd have been appointed.

Also appointed were ARUP Jururunding Sdn Bhd and ARUP Group International (Hong Kong) as consultants in the security and risks engineering area, Buro Happold Consulting Engineers (US & USA) as sustainability consultant and KEO International Consultants (Qatar) as the programme management advisor.

Azmar added that the selection of consultants for Bandar Malaysia, a KLIFD twin development in Sungai Besi, will undergo the same rigorous process.

KLIFD is currently at the master planning phase and is on track to start construction beginning of next year.

The 30-ha development in the Imbi area fronting Jalan Tun Razak aims to bring together leading financial institutions and top global companies to create a catalytic pool of world-class players.

It will leverage on Malaysia’s existing strength in Islamic finance and play on its strategic location to complement other financial centres within the region.
