Project Description

Express Ipoh

Client Name

IGB Corporation Berhad

As Asia’s leading fitout company, Advantes was engaged to undertake the fitout of 210 guest rooms, a business centre, lobby and café of the hotel. The carpentry work, soft and hard finishes provided a simplistic transfer of brand into building. The main objective was to complete the work within a very tight deadline, while maintaining a high-level of quality workmanship.

We apply thought leadership to every project and seek to move beyond a simplistic transfer of brand into building; instead we work together with our clients to extract the essence of their brand into spaces that are functional, engaging and effective. Therefore in addition to the fitout work, Advantes carried out an engineering and design exercise to the guest room. This exercise resulted in the efficiency of space usage, reduction of the cost to build, all while maintaining design integrity.

The team at Advantes has long been recognized for their experience and depth in project management. Together with a partner factory that prides itself in the mass production of quality woodwork and the years of operation experience in Singapore, Advantes is primed to take on projects that require excellent quality in a short time frame.

  • The Cititel Express project was completed in six months while maintaining a high level of workmanship.
  • Efficient cost control and project management resulted in the project delivered below budget upon completion. Cost savings of 5% was returned to the client.
