Largest Intel office outside US uses new design standard

Retrofitted from one of its existing properties in the island’s Free Industrial Zone, the building boasts 153,000sqft of office space which is expected to house more than 10% of Intel Malaysia’s employees, once it’s in full operation.

The company wants to make its working environment to be more effective, efficient, productive and enjoyable for its employees, said Robin Martin, managing director.

The new office design includes flexible work areas and more conference rooms, as well as areas to encourage creativity and collaboration, he said.

The building is eco-friendly too, as over 18,000 tons of reused and recycled materials were used in the construction — that’s equivalent to around 2,570 truckloads of potential waste diverted from landfills.

“We have been looking forward to the launch of the PG7 building for awhile now and I am glad to note that our wait has finally been rewarded with a brand new workspace where the Intel family can come together to continue the great work we’ve been doing since our establishment here in 1972,” he said.

The launch of PG7 is a symbol of Intel’s continued commitment and investment efforts here, he said.

Intel started the Corporate Office Standard in 2007 in response to the need to update its office environment to accommodate the latest technology, increase collaboration, provide for the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce and improve utilisation of office assets.

Intel Malaysia’s operations are conducted out of a high-tech campus with 10 buildings on the Penang island, as well as on the mainland in Kulim, Kedah.
