TH Technologies Appointed Turnkey Developer
Lembaga Tabung Haji (TH) has appointed TH Technologies Sdn Bhd, the construction management arm of the TH Properties Group of Companies, as the turnkey developer for an integrated Islamic Administration Complex.
Situated in Putrajaya, the project which is valued at RM400 million, will begin construction in July 2011 and is scheduled to be completed in June 2014. The establishment of the office Complex will be in line with the vision of the Malaysian government to make Putrajaya the nation’s central administrative centre by bringing together all the religious agencies under the Prime Minister’s Office, to one central location.
The groundbreaking ceremony held earlier today was officiated by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Yang Berhormat Jeneral Dato’ Seri Haji Jamil Khir bin Haji Baharom (R). Also present was YBhg Dato’ Paduka Hj. Ismee Ismail, TH’s Group CEO and Managing Director, and Dato’ Roszali Othman, Chief Executive Officer of TH Properties Sdn. Bhd.
“This development is another milestone achievement by TH Technologies, following the recent completion of a 34 storey office tower on waqaf land in the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur. This project has been conceptualized and designed by our team from the outset and will be a prominent landmark in Putrajaya,” said Dato’ Roszali Othman in his speech.
The Complex, which consists of 4 blocks, 803 car bays and 350 motorcycle bays, will accommodate tenants from the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM), Syariah Judiciary Department Malaysia (JKSM), Department of Awqaf (endowment), Zakat (alms) and Hajj (pilgrimage) (JAWHAR), Federal Territory Mufti Office, Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Department (JAWI), Federal Territory Islamic Religious Council (MAIWP), Malaysia Islamic Economic Development Foundation (YaPEIM), and Islamic Da’wah Foundation Malaysia (YADIM).
Located by the lake adjacent to the new Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque, the Complex blends timeless Islamic values and cutting edge modern design. Designed to express “light upon light”, as mentioned in the Holy Quran, the buildings will be an art form of natural light, glass, shades, screens, water and greenery, combined with bold metallic and concrete structures to exude both serenity and dynamism.
The overall plan will create a unique working environment with large, spacious offices. An open courtyard and pedestrian plaza is created by integrating landscape spaces within the complex to create a conducive work and recreational environment.
The Complex also emphasises a sustainable and eco-friendly environment, through a roof design that incorporates roof garden and roof shades, sun shades and screens that reduce penetration of direct sunlight, and energy-saving via rain water harvesting and usage of natural lighting.
