Benoy is delighted to announce that it has won two major new contracts in Malaysia, where the company has also just opened an office. Kuala Lumpur represents its ninth global studio.
The news was broken at the UK Government’s Creative Services Summit, held at the ‘British Business Embassy’ in central London where Jacqueline Beckingham, Benoy Director, was one of a panel of high profile ambassadors for the UK’s Creative Industries Sector. The event was one of 18 high profile meetings organised by UK Trade & Investment taking place during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The aim of the ‘Embassy’ is to build and strengthen partnerships between UK firms and international businesses.
Benoy is involved in the enhancement of the development masterplan of KL Metropolis, Kuala Lumpur’s new International Trade and Exhibition District. Led by prominent Malaysian developer Naza TTDI Sdn Bhd, the development will comprise world-class exhibition space, contemporary office buildings, luxury apartments, boutique hotels, a museum, art complexes and a specialist healthcare precinct along with a variety of shopping, dining and entertainment experiences.
In addition, one of the largest developers in Malaysia has instructed Benoy to deliver a masterplan for the first transit orientated development in the heart of Subang Jaya, Malaysia. The concept for EAST Precinct is to successfully integrate a mix of retail, hotel, serviced apartments and office suites within the transport infrastructure to create a unique landmark destination that will form an integral part of Subang Jaya City Centre’s vision for the future.
Benoy Chairman, Graham Cartledge CBE, who was at the opening ceremony of the Summit in London said:
‘The creative industries are undoubtedly an integral part of the UK’s economic success and future growth and Benoy is delighted to be a part of such an important global summit. As an established British brand, we are particularly pleased to announce our involvement in two landmark projects in Malaysia. Benoy’s first steps into this vibrant country mark an exciting new phase of the firm’s international journey.’
