Introduction

ISG in Malaysia has successfully completed a 13,500 sq ft fast-track fit out for the market leader in flexible workspace, The Instant Group, at Datacom's Malaysian office.

Datacom is one of Asia Pacific's leading IT-based service providers, with over 5,000 employees across ASEAN, Australasia, Europe, and the Americas.

The project

Located within the award-winning 1 Sentral in Kuala Lumpur, the agile scheme saw us delivering a collaborative and community-focused work environment that includes 150 workstations, seven meeting and discussion rooms, and 11 focus pods, as well as five recreational spaces comprising break-out, pantry, and rest and recuperation (R&R) areas.

A noteworthy design element in the reception is a structural ceiling-to-column centrepiece resembling a tree, with branches that span across the surrounding spaces. This feature, along with meeting rooms named after various trees, is an artistic reference to the forested landscapes in Malaysia and will provide a sense of ownership to the Datacom workforce.

The fit out was completed in July 2018 with zero defects recorded.
