Malaysia: MRCB Pursues “Green” Developments with Sustainable Features

MALAYSIAN Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) strengthened its green cred by clinching the prestigious FIABCI Malaysia Property Award under the Sustainable Development category for its project, Platinum Sentral. Having previously won Best Green Initiatives to Best Green Office Development awards, MRCB gained recognition for Sustainable Development for Platinum Sentral due to its outstanding features including energy saving, as well as efficiency in utilising energy, water and materials.

MRCB Group managing director Datuk Mohamad Salim bin Fateh Din enthused, “I am proud of this win because FIABCI recognises our “green” development for business sustainability, which balances progress with the preservation of nature and low cost maintenance in the long term for building amenities.”

Situated in KL Sentral, every feature from the walls, the roof, even the gardens and plant life in Platinum Sentral are meant to help conserve energy.

Sitting right next to Malaysia’s largest and busiest railway transportation hub, Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur, achieving sustainability in this challenging location required innovative thinking. The result is not only a sustainable development but Malaysia’s first “Smart + Connected Real Estate (S+CRE)” with its centralised network solution for integrating energy, building, facility, security, maintenance and IT networks management. It forms the internal structure that supports green and sustainable features and functionalities.

MRCB is the master developer of the Kuala Lumpur Sentral CBD which has eight spectacular buildings, some completed and some with work in progress. All are built to “green” specifications and designs. These are Menara CIMB, Q Sentral, The Sentral Residences, Nu Sentral retail mall, 1 Sentrum, Platinum Sentral, Menara Shell and Ascott Sentral – and are certified “green” by local or internationalcertification bodies. “We have voluntarily initiated the adoption of “green” development strategies for all future developments under MRCB and we will continue to pursue “green” developments in Malaysia that are sustainable and environmentally friendly in terms of design, operations and maintenance, as well as adopting applicable “green” building best practices.”

MRCB sustainable practices are in accordance to the principles of the “Green Agenda” under the Government’s Transformation Programme.
