BMT has opened a new office in Kuala Lumpur Sentral, the heart of the city’s business operations, to bring together its services and provide better facilities for its burgeoning number of Malaysian clients.
The new hub, situated in KL Sentral, boosts BMT’s regional growth strategy through a stronger local presence, more space, a better working environment for staff, a higher quality experience for customers, and room to grow.
BMT’s services in Sentral, the largest commercial development in KL, include risk assessment, marine and civil structures, environment modelling and simulation, data analysis, ops management and wind engineering. A new navigation simulation and wind tunnel testing control room will also be sited in the office.
BMT has been involved in several major projects in the city, such as KL Eco City, TNB Redevelopment, KL Metropolis and Banyan Tree Residence, and the expanded presence in the city is expected to be the platform for further client support.
Michelle Cushion, Managing Director at BMT says: “This will create a centralised BMT office in Kuala Lumpur and achieve a co-location of BMT’s activities already based in the city, with scope for future expansion. We are currently spread over multiple locations and this ‘hub’ will bring multiple BMT companies and skills together to cross sell and offer a more effective service to our clients.”
Sentral, originally a city within a city, has grown in importance as the Malaysian capital’s main business centre, thanks in part to its transport hub, which has direct links to KL International Airport, Putrajaya, the government administrative centre, Cyberjaya, and key areas within KL’s Multimedia Super Corridor. It includes five-star international hotels, residential flats and a shopping mall.
BMT’s new office address is: 16-8 Q Sentral, 2A, Jalan Stesen Sentral 2, 50470 Kuala Lumpur.
