Asia Aerospace City

Asia Aerospace CityAtkins has completed the concept design and masterplan for the Asia Aerospace City (AAC) in Subang, Malaysia, a world-class development which aims to attract global engineering services business worth US $1.1 billion to Malaysia by 2020. The contract to act as lead consultant and masterplanner for the facility was awarded by MARA, the Malaysian government agency responsible for education and entrepreneurship.
Asia Aerospace CityThe AAC has been designed as a smart city with cutting edge research and development facilities, integrated office suites, academic campuses, a convention centre and residential areas. Inspiration for the 328,000 sqm AAC design came from the wings of an aeroplane. With interaction between students and engineers identified by MARA as a key objective, the buildings are arranged to create nodes for various types of activities.

A research and training centre supporting aerospace testing and validation activities. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis was used by Atkins to align buildings and allow natural breezes through the outdoor areas. A set of canopies covering 36,000 sqm will shade outdoor areas and contribute to on-site energy generation through in-built photovoltaic panels.
