The HQ of Robert Bird and Associates or also known as Perunding R.B.A(Malaysia) in Kuala Lumpur, is periodically supplemented by expatriates when the project or programming needs dictate. These shorter term personnel are selected for their specific skills and expertise when it is needed.
The core of our resident Kuala Lumpur staff have been selected and developed over the past ten years to provide the necessary local knowledge in engineering practice for our project teams. These resident staff have a broad range of experience in the design of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete, steel structures, timber, masonry, top-down construction, as well as the local and traditional building methods utilised in Malaysia.
In particular, there has been a focus on implementing and merging advanced engineering techniques and technology to develop the optimal engineering designs while integrating current local documentation standards and practices. The result has been seen a success with very rare, difficulty in interpretation of documents by contractors and therefore ensuring that the building process progresses smoothly.
Robert Bird and Associates Sdn. Bhd. has extensive experience in fast-tracking design and construction, which we see as a prime requirement for projects. Additionally, our value engineering practices will ensure that the most suitable and economically feasible building can be designed and delivered on programme. We can assess & improve the designs to lower both construction costs and time by generating efficient design alternatives that suit the clients' needs.
To further supplement the local project team, our Kuala Lumpur office is well equipped with the latest computer, communication, and drafting facilities for the design and documentation process. We have recently further enhanced our potential for optimal information transfer between consultants and offices both locally and worldwide via an online private portal. Our engineers have access to the latest engineering software for design and excellent CAD drafting and plotting facilities to ensure that design data is able to be transferred accurately and easily. To achieve the client’s objectives, Robert Bird & Associates personnel have access to proprietary and in-house computer software that we use to undertake designs which aim to increase cost efficiency while maximising utility and worth.
