Introduction

ISG was engaged to deliver the significant expansion of the Louis Vuitton's flagship store in Kuala Lumpur. With a brief to expand the footprint from 6,000 sq ft to 15,000 sq ft, ISG delivered this pioneering store within the spotlight of its flagship location within the Starhill Gallery. The store was divided into a series of departments and areas including women's fashion, menswear, footwear, travel, jewellery, watches, and the VIP Room and an entrance area - all of which were fitted out with exquisite finishes.

 

The project

ISG delivered this pioneering store within the spotlight of its flagship location within the Starhill Gallery. The brief was to expand the store's footprint from 6,000 sq ft to 15,000 sq ft. With a street frontage of 46 metres and a location immediately adjacent to the Marriott Hotel main entrance, logistic management and minimal disruption were absolutely critical for our team and all project stakeholders. This was managed through precise planning, phased works and close coordination with YTL to ensure that the adjacent retail and hotel operations were not impacted. Delivered in three phases, significant coordination was required between ISG and the millwork contractor, Redwood and also the facade contractor, MBM to ensure the best quality outcomes. By working sequentially across the store, ISG and the direct specialist contractors were able to maintain targeted completion dates to meet timely opening of the store.
