In a bid to retain valuable talent, companies all across the world are looking at a variety of solutions to provide an unbeatable employment experience for their workforces.
A leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider has appointed ISG in Malaysia to deliver a 13,500 sq ft best-in-class dining facility, on the rooftop of the Intermark Mall in Kuala Lumpur.
The firm’s new restaurant was built to cater for the employees and their family members, with the capacity to hold up to 222 diners at any given time, and includes VIP, as well as al fresco dining areas.
Accessible through level 6 of the Integra Tower, it provides convenient accessibility to staff members whose offices are located at level 32 and 33 in the same office tower.
Due to its location above the mall, the facility required significant structural and coring works, which in turn needed extensive landlord negotiations and co-ordination, which ISG successfully expedited.
ISG produced a carefully co-ordinated lifting plan to hoist more than 10 tonnes of steel by crane onto the rooftop, which was used for the façade and roofing elements of the restaurant. To ensure minimal disruption, the lifting was only executed after hours as the entrance to the facility was situated along Jalan Tun Razak, a road which is busy during the daytime.
ISG also delivered a scope of works that included the installation of a full external glazed cladding solution housing the main restaurant, the integration of specialist servery solutions within the static stone and solid surface counters, as well as the construction of a full commercial-grade kitchen.
Commenting about the collaborative work delivered alongside ISG, design principal and director of Designlogix, Shahril Faizal Sani, said, “My overall experience with ISG is very positive, and the project was delivered on time, on budget and the team provided value for money through the quality of workmanship and product solutions procured for the project. The team’s high-level of commitment, process-driven approach and health and safety standards are really exceptional and impressive. The team proactively managed issues and worked swiftly to deliver against expectations. ISG is a professional contractor in Malaysia who is very committed to achieve customer's satisfaction. I will definitely consider working with them again, and will highly recommend them to others.”
In response to the tight 10-week programme, ISG’s full-time site management team of five personnel worked over extended periods, in order to successfully deliver the project on time and to target.
