Located nearby the bustling city of Kuching, the project provides a refuge from the busy urban environment and an opportunity to escape into over 40,000 m2 of natural surroundings, which would also be ideal for future expansion into farmsteads for the local community.
Climatically this region experiences heavy rainfall throughout the year combined with high temperatures. Specialised building products such as ROCKWOOL insulation are necessary to help combat the effects of the harsh climate and overheating.
The use of ROCKWOOL ThermalRock in the refurbishment of the metal deck roof improves thermal insulation by reducing the transfer of heat to the building's interior while optimizing acoustic performance by reducing the noise caused by the heavy rainfall on metal roofs.
With tranquillity of paramount importance to the retreat, the multiple benefits of ROCKWOOL insulation work towards creating a quiet and comfortable environment in harmony with the natural surroundings.
National Sales Manager, Agnez Cheong, believes that ‘The donation to the project made by ROCKWOOL Malaysia together with our distributor United G.I. serves as a positive example of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility, which aims to improve communities and societies worldwide’.
The retreat is scheduled to be completed and fully functional by 2016.
