Borneo's Very First Purpose-Built Convention Centre is on Schedule and will be open for Business in October 2009 at a Cost of RM 195 Million

Right in the heart of the mystical island of Borneo prepare to experience a conference centre like no other. Come October 2009 the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching or BCCK, as it’s fondly known, will open for business.

This will be a unique event venue, featuring world-class facilities. It is the first international purpose-built convention centre on the island of Borneo. Located on a landscaped Isthmus site, surrounded by water and adjacent to a marina that overlooks historic rainforest. BCCK will combine spacious design, flexible and elegant conference halls, administered by a professional and experienced management team.

With due consideration to environmental issues, the architectural team has themed the conference centre to reflect some of the more important rainforest elements of the island. The elegantly shaped roof taking its cue from the shape of the 'ririg' leaf (from a tree found in the rainforest of Borneo), complete with a central conduit to allow rain water to be channeled and collected at either end of the building for irrigation purposes within the grounds and gardens of the centre.

Taking advantage of Kuching's average rainfall of 4,000 mm annually, the water features on opposite ends of the building will come alive on rainy days, as rainwater rolls down the five meter wide central conduit of BCCK's single storey roof, these areas will provide visitors with cool, restful, and interesting places to take a break from business.

Complimenting the outdoor features will be the interior energy-efficient utility systems suchs as the smart lighting, security and life safety fire protection. All of which will come under the 'Energy Star' banner. The BCCK is technically well appointed to carry out world class networking systems. Better data transmissions and clearer calls will be possible with the availability of IP phones and IP conferencing. Soundproof room partitions are used to segregate events without compromising on comfort and ambience.

A main hall of 2,793 sq metres will cater for crowds of up to 5,000 persons, supported by 14 pillar less break out rooms. With the disabled in mind, wheelchair ramps are provided, fitted washroom stalls, and a specially designated elevator are part of the convention centre’s way of making sure all visitors are catered for.

To spearhead the management of BCCK are three highly experienced individuals. They are, Alice Fong as director of sales, Sujoy Dey the director of operations and Alvin Wee is business development manager.

BCCK qualifies as finalist in MIPIM Asia Awards
Thursday November 4, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...42&sec=sarawak



Sarawak’s pride: The BCCK has been selected as a finalist in
the Best Business Centre category of the MIPIM Asia Awards.


THE Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) has been shortlisted as one of the three finalists in the Best Business Centres category of the MIPIM Asia Awards 2010.

The centre was pitted against South Korea’s NHN Green Factory building and Shanghai International Financial Centre HSBC building.

Main market-listed conglomerate Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad (CMS) announced yesterday that it was proud that its submission of the BCCK had been shortlisted.

The selection of the winner will be through voting by an expected 2,000 delegates from across Asia attending the MIPIM Asia conference and exhibition in Hong Kong from Nov 10 to 12.

The winner will be announced at the MIPIM Asia Awards ceremony on Nov 11.

MIPIM Asia is the world’s property market in the Asia-Pacific region.

The MIPIM Asia Awards, launched in 2007 and now in its fourth edition, pay tribute to outstanding projects in the Asia-Pacific region for their environmental, architectural and technical features.

The projects compete in eight categories namely business centres, shopping centres, mixed-use buildings, residential developments, hotels and tourism resorts, green buildings, best Chinese projects and Futura projects.

This year’s finalists were chosen by a prestigious panel of 11 international jury members who met for nearly eight hours in a closed-door meeting on Sept 17 in Hong Kong to review 79 projects that had been short-listed.

Only three finalists were selected in each category and announced at a press conference at the MIPIM Asia headquarters in Paris on Sept 21.

CMS group managing director Datuk Richard Curtis, in a press statement issued yesterday, said: “We are extremely proud that our project, the sole Malaysian finalist, has made it to the final round.

The awards are considered by many to be the Oscars for real estate as the winners are determined by a large group of leading industry professionals made up of institutional investors, public and private sector organisations, property developers, hotel groups and others.

The winners are especially proud to receive this industry recognition of excellence.

Last year, more than 1,900 participants from over 1,000 companies representing 42 countries were present at the MIPIM Asia in Hong Kong.

Located on The Isthmus, Kuching, the BCCK is Sarawak’s first purpose-built world-class convention centre.

Easily recognised by its distinctive giant rainforest Ririg leaf-shaped green roof, it was developed for the Sarawak government by CMS’ construction subsidiary PPES Works (Sarawak). It was designed by local architectural firm Arkitek KDI.

Fully completed earlier this year, the BCCK’s pillar-free 10m-high Great Hall and 14 additional meetings rooms have been the preferred venue in East Malaysia for many events large and small, local and international.
