Malaysia: Chapman Taylor at the Ageing Buildings Conference

Earlier this month Chapman Taylor were invited to guest speak at the Ageing Buildings Conference in Kuala Lumpur. The purpose of the event was to examine and discuss how architects and masterplanners can revive and revamp a building to increase its productivity.

Chapman Taylor Directors Peter Mackay and Jon Grant’s well received presentation, entitled Asset Enhancement: Differing Scales and Common Goals, addressed the key factors to consider when looking to develop a building; Sustainability, Affordability and Capability. 

Through their examination of the firm’s building portfolio they were able to showcase architectural developments that are appropriate for different forms of asset enhancement. Trinity Leeds, for example, was a product of a Regeneration scheme whereby the redevelopment of an existing shopping centre transformed the city, creating over 3,000 jobs. Tesco Rama II, however, was an example of a Refurbishment development where the new Asian Standard for Tesco stores was met through a revamp of the existing store. Then there is Post Galerie, which showed the process of Repurposing by reinstating the building as a focal point in the city centre.
