PETALING JAYA: The developer of Jaya 33 will be offering for lease two new office towers in a couple of months. Towers 4 and 5, built at a cost of about RM200mil, will be connected to the existing Jaya33 block with a bridge for cars and pedestrians.

Its marketing director L.C. Toh said the two blocks, known as Jaya33 Cybercentre, had just received its Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) status and boasted of several unique features. The nearest MSC-status office premises is First Avenue in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya.

Toh said the new blocks offered the largest commercial floor space at 19,000 sq ft per floor compared to the conventional 8,000-10,000 sq ft. This will cater to the increasingly popular open office plan concept. The floor interior is laid out to house more people and to improve space efficiency from the conventional 100 sq ft per person to 75 sq ft per person.

The floor design also incorporates additional space to accommodate any extra mechanical and electrical requirements for telecommunications and computer cabling.

The main over-riding feature of the development is the incorporation of three data centre floors in one of the blocks.

Tower 5 will come with purpose-built data centres on levels 9, 10 and 11 which will have a total of 57,000 sq ft.

Companies have the option to rent the suites of 1,450 sq ft. There are four suites to a floor.

“The floor loading is 7kPA (kilo Pascal) to withstand the weight of generators. There will be dual sources of power supply as data centres run 24 hours,” she said, adding that the centre would meet the third tier of data centre specifications.

Toh said the three floors would have specific technicalities of data centres different from normal office premises. These include self-control air-conditioning instead of a centralised one, security, power, heavy-duty floor loading, greater floor to ceiling height and other technical requirements. It will also come with fibre-optic network.

“It will be cost efficient,” said Toh, and the rates would be between RM7.50 and RM8 per sq ft excluding equipment.

“The rates are competitive,” she said, adding that there were some data centre leases which ran into double digits, including equipment and depending on power voltage requirements.

Banks, for example, have their own data centres with the information of their clients which they cannot afford to lose. Security is important.

The data centres were built in consultation with MyTeleHause Sdn Bhd and C2 Consult Sdn Bhd.
