KLCC Refurbishment & Outlet Relocation Works
PKT has performed several refurbishment and relocation works for KLCC over time, with the target always to increase the amount of footfall within the retail mall, and thus increasing the efficiency and profitability of the mall. The first stage of our work on KLCC involved the Relocation of ISETAN from the 5th floor to Concourse level, Kinokuniya to its current position on the 5th floor, and the increase of specialty retail frontage to improve vision. Progressively, we have performed studies to improve the line of sight of the internal areas by shifting the lift core, made the mall more aesthetically pleasing by installing the canopy, and we are currently working on increasing the amount of retail space available in the mall by converting less efficient areas.
