Turner & Townsend managing Malaysia uni fit out
Firm giving project management on Heriot-Watt University in Putrajaya
Turner & Townsend is leading the fit-out of Heriot-Watt University’s new campus in Putrajaya, Malaysia.
The company is providing cost and project management services for the work, which will see the creation of a campus for up to 4,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The campus will include a series of purpose-built laboratories offering courses in science, engineering, business, mathematics and design.
Total construction costs are estimated at $41.8m, and the first stage is due to be completed in May 2014.
Professor Robert Craik, provost and CEO of Heriot-Watt University Malaysia, said: “The development of Heriot-Watt University Malaysia's flagship campus in Putrajaya is an enormously exciting opportunity. Turner & Townsend are adding real value to the project, coordinating with Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd as the master developers, as well as with the project managers, interior design teams, architects and the University to ensure our requirements are met. Their advice and expertise is extremely important to the overall success of the project.”
