ISG was appointed to deliver the fit out a retail scheme, Flying Emporium, situated within the new addition to Kuala Lumpur International Airport, KLIA 2. Housing many of Valiram's worldwide brands, the store spans 14,500 sq ft and accommodates over thirty different brands off the shelves which required highly-customised joinery, built specifically to suit the design and brand requirements. The project was delivered in a live working environment, with over 3000 other construction workers working to construct new areas of the airport. This posed significant logistical constraints and required precise planning and execution. The project was delivered to high-quality outcomes, and the Flying Emporium is the biggest store of its kind within the airport departure area - creating the best impression at the new airport. 


The project

With coordination being a key priority, ISG provided full-time site management team of four to coordinate the stringent logistic requirements enforced by the airport's security department, and to also accommodate significant design changes throughout the construction progress. The Flying Emporium was completed in conjunction with Victoria Secret's and Michael Kors' stores within the same airport, also appointed to us under the Valiram Group.
