Overview

Following the successful completion of the Singapore MBS Maison project and the more recent fit out of the temporary Starhill store, ISG was engaged for the significant expansion of the KL flagship store in Kuala Lumpur. With a brief to increase the store footprint from 6,000 sq ft to 15,000 sq ft, ISG delivered this pioneering store within the spotlight of a flagship location within the Starhill Gallery.

With a street frontage of 46 metres and a location immediately adjacent to the Marriott Hotel main entrance, logistics and a minimal presence were critical in the delivery of the store – this was managed via close coordination with YTL to ensure that the adjacent retail and hotel operations were not unduly impacted.

Delivered in 3 main phases to a single completion, significant coordination was required between ISG and the millwork contractor, Redwood and also the façade contractor, MBM. By working sequentially across the store, ISG and the direct specialist contractors were able to maintain targeted completion dates to ensure the timely opening of the store to positive acclaim.
