This prestigious project is within the prime south-east corner of Kuala Lumpur Sentral and will be the site of the CIMB Investment Group's headquarters. The design of this building includes traditional Islamic elements to create a resilient, timeless image of strength and confidence.
Lafarge Concrete Malaysia (LCM) was awarded the supply of 20,000 m3 of mass concrete which was completed in 4 months. This project required temperature control for fresh concrete at the site to be below 30'C with a maximum peak temperature of 75'C. The addition of ice in the fresh concrete and the use of Mascrete Low Heat cement were utilised to achieve the required specifications. A new record was achieved by LCM when 4,746 m3 of concrete was supplied continuously for one of the raft foundation pours within a 30 hour period.
Lafarge Aggregates (LASB) supplied all of the 20 mm concrete stone to LCM for this project which required a constant supply of consistent quality product. LASB is currently supplying crusher run and manufactured sand (estimated 15,000 tonnes) to the same project for the construction of the access road and bridge connecting the main highway to KL Sentral.
