This 55 storey skyscraper stands at 304m high and is currently the 98th tallest building in the world and the 4th tallest in Malaysia. Designed by Malaysian architect Hijjas Kasturi Associates, its unique curvilinear structure is based on the work of Malaysian sculpture, Latiff Mohidin and the shape represents a sprouting bamboo shoot and hence it is also known as Bamboo Tower locally in Kuala Lumpur.
The building represents a landmark in intelligent architecture and its 6-star rating reflects the green building design and commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability. The underfloor system has helped minimise construction costs and maximise occupant comfort throughout the building. A total of 227 CAM-V33 units and 1800 standard TU4 Fantiles are installed throughout the building, the modular nature of the system allowing the A/C installation to be delayed until the building reached the construction of the 40th floor. The TU4 Fantiles easily fit into the 350mm floor void and offer flexibility for future reconfiguration of the work space.
Menara Telekom, Malaysia’s largest telecommunications company, occupy 16 lower floors leaving the remainder available for commercial let. The total construction cost was $160 million and the building was officially opened on February 10th 2003.
