Berjaya Central Park

After the success of the largest residential and shopping complex, Berjaya Times Square, built in the 2000s, VINCI Construction Grands Projets is signing another agreement with the same client (Berjaya Group) for the construction of the new Berjaya Central Park. With this project, VINCI Construction Grands Projets is once again building a colossal structure of more than 185,000 m² combining a 46-storey office building and a second 48-storey tower housing the Ritz Carlton hotel.


Since the 1980s, Malaysia has seen strong economic and industrial growth to become one of the most urbanised developing countries. The construction of the Berjaya Central Park tower is a matter of great importance for the country because it is located in the national capital, Kuala Lumpur, which, as the economic and cultural capital of the country, has experienced the greatest urban and economic growth in Southeast Asia.
The construction of this tower is in accordance with the country’s economic development and the need to respond to present and future requirements in accommodation and consumption.


This project involves the construction of a 185,000-m² complex built above a 4-storey underground structure and consists of a 9-storey podium block (mainly carparks) as well as two towers (a 46-storey office building and a 48-storey Ritz Carlton residential tower) that reach a height of nearly 200 metres.

More specifically, the construction of this building complex includes the turnkey construction of a 61,000-m² L1 to L9 podium (mainly for parking) based on a client design; the turnkey construction of a 60,000-m² L10 to L46 office building using a prestressed concrete flat slab variant as the base; and the construction of a 68,000-m² Ritz Carlton L10 to L48 residential tower in reinforced concrete.
The structure of this building in reinforced concrete with post-tensioned flat slabs was a variant of the client design. It is through this solution that we were able to make savings and win the contract. As for the façade, it was constructed as a curtain wall. The work reflects great skill. This worksite is a mix of innovations, high-quality finishes, and the ability to adapt. For the building to be able to meet the highest international standard, we had to adapt to local requirements and know-how.
Finally, the building is also innovative in the way that it optimises space.
Our main challenge on this project was restarting our building activity in the region. The interruption of the activity in the zone since 2003 obliged us to form a competent local network (subcontractors and partners) again and reconstitute teams. On top of this, the schedule was very tight.
The first of the two Berjaya Central Park towers, known popularly as Menara Bangkok Bank after the name of its largest tenant, was delivered in June 2015 and the second was completed in 2016.

The Berjaya Central Park tower has a total surface area of no less than 185,000 m², with 73,000 m² of concrete, 11,200 tonnes of steel and 375,000 m² of formwork.


For more than 20 years from 1995 to 2016, we have been accompanying our client Berjaya in its real estate development projects. In fact, it was in 1995 that we started the construction of the colossal Berjaya Time Square, which is also located in Kuala Lumpur. Delivered in 2003, this mega building houses the Berjaya headquarters.
Today, we are at it again with the construction of Berjaya Central Park. This tower, reaching a height of nearly 200 metres, stands tall despite the presence of more than 200 skyscrapers in this city as a sign of its recent development.
The construction of this building breathes fresh air into the country by making it an exceptional place melding comfort and aesthetics.
This project has helped us regain our foothold and relaunch our building activity in Southeast Asia with five projects underway. Projects such the Jesselton residential towers in Kota Kinabalu (capital of the Malaysian state of Sabah in Borneo), the Menara Hap Seng office tower in Kota Kinabalu (Eastern Malaysia, Borneo), the Phnom Penh and Siem Reap international airport extension projects, and more recently the construction of the Allia Resort Hotel in Kota Kinabalu (Eastern Malaysia, Borneo).
