BDG/McColl’s fledgling Kuala Lumpur office has picked up its first major project – designing interiors for all public areas for the region’s new airport.
The 100km2 airport is expected to be one of South East Asia’s busiest airports and will handle around 25 million passengers in the initial phases of completion, with 60 million a year forecast by 2020. All BDG/McColl work is due for completion by 1998.
The project involves extensive use of CAD which is being electronically linked between the consultancy’s London headquarters and the Kuala Lumpur office, which has been operating for two months.
BDG/McColl won the work through recommendation.
