Faithful+Gould has been selected as project management consultants for delivery of the first IKEA store in the southern region of Malaysia.

Set to open by the end of 2017, the new IKEA store will be located at Tebrau, Johor Bahru for Ikano. IKEA is the world's largest home furnishing retailer, with more than 385 stores worldwide – including those owned and operated by Ikano Private Limited in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

"This is a fantastic win for Faithful+Gould and a testament to the trust Ikano have put in our integrated project management expertise."

Our team of project managers, construction managers, health and safety executive (HSE) specialists, commercial managers, design managers, specialist schedulers, and the architectural design review team will be working closely with Ikano to deliver the development according to their operational needs and requirements.

Rick Hancock, director - South-East Asia, said: "This is a fantastic win for Faithful+Gould and a testament to the trust Ikano have put in our integrated project management expertise. With the addition of this prominent IKEA development to our project portfolio, we have solidified our position to further infiltrate the Malaysian market and broader retail sector in Asia-Pacific and, more importantly, look forward to our continued growth with Ikano."

To date, Faithful+Gould has been involved in the delivery of IKEA retail stores in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Foshan, and Harbin in China, as well as the Middle East.
