Project Overview

The IB Tower building is an iconic landmark: an impressive building that changed the skyline of Kuala Lumpur. At 274 meters tall, it is one of the tallest buildings in the city. The IB Tower of 60 floors, designed by the award-winning company Foster + Partners, combines category 1 office space with luxury apartments that have multiple services included. The complex is a balanced model, both for business and leisure, perfectly in tune with the needs of modern professionals. The needs of the building extend to acoustic and thermal performance. In order to achieve these standards, a resilient Acousticork Underscreed was applied, which ensures acoustic comfort and mitigates the propagation of impact noise between compartments, as well as contributing to the thermal improvement of the constructive solutions. This material combines the technical capabilities with the demanding sustainability requirements of today.

This building is the result of an extensive and careful process of research on shapes. Its exoskeleton of diagonal lines, with triangular concrete structure and exterior trusses is offset by the elegant glassed surface lining the structural reinforcement of the building.

A sustainable and high performance solution

In addition to the appropriate functioning of the building and its envisioned uses, it also has a strong concern for environmental and sustainability issues, and Acousticork Underscreed, as a recycled material, fits perfectly with these premises. It is made from recycled car and truck tires, part of a recycling and recovery circuit of transport sector waste.
