Subang Skypark Sdn Bhd is set to embark on an ambitious infrastructure development plan to transform the former Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, now known as Subang Skypark, into a full-fledged aerospace city by 2015.
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.
- An academic cluster which includes the Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology and a professional development centre for about 2,000 students
- A research and training centre supporting aerospace testing and validation activities
- A central cluster which caters for professional event functions and contains a convention centre and a business hotel
- Restaurant, cafe and sports facilities which will extend social interaction for resident engineers and students and visitors.
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.
