National Exhibition & Conference Centre
Subang, Malaysia

The practice were appointed, against international competition, as Architects and Lead Consultants for the Master Plan and subsequently the detail design of a major exhibition and convention centre situated at the former international airport of Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang, Malaysia. The proposals were part of a government initiative to regenerate this part of Kuala Lumpur, following the relocation of the International Airport to the new government quarter at Putra Jaya. The site was in two parts, being dissected by the Subang International Highway. The strategy developed was to locate the exhibition centre to the south of the Highway, which could then be linked directly with the existing airport and runway, making the new facility directly accessible to trade exhibitors flying goods in from worldwide. The Convention Centre, hotels, car parking and new offices for our client were located to the north of the site. The two halves were then linked with high-level walkways and travelators providing ease of communication between all of the facilities. The master plan also linked the transport infrastructure with heavy rail, a future light rail link, new and improved road links with access to multi-storey car parking providing in excess of 5500 spaces. The design of the Halls catered for opportunities to bring aircraft into the Halls and a Boeing 747 to dock at a VIP arrival suite. The total cost of the project was in the region of 350m UK, with it being taken beyond tender stage.
