Hong Kong – Atkins has signed a contract with MARA to deliver the concept design for buildings and the master plan for core and potential extension areas of the Asia Aerospace City Subang, Malaysia. The Malaysian Prime Minister witnessed the signing ceremony and congratulated both parties.

Chris Birdsong, Atkins’ Chief Executive Officer for Asia Pacific, said, “I am excited about this strategic project. In line with Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Plan, which calls for the nation to become a self-sufficient industrialized nation by the year 2020, education plays a vital role to achieve the vision. We are extremely proud to contribute to this vision which will directly benefit the local community.”

“I am also delighted to work with MARA for this project. The combination of international expertise we bring combined with MARA’s vision and profound local know-how will help both parties to unlock more opportunities in the market in the future.”

Upon completion, the development will provide office accommodations to international engineering firms and training facilities and opportunities to local engineers and engineering students.
