CCK Endau Kindergarten

CCK Endau Kindergarten

From a proposal to use Durock® Cement Board to eventually becoming the sole building solutions provider, USG Boral Malaysia proves its prowess once again by combining top-quality materials and industry expertise.

USG Boral Malaysia was the primary building materials supplier in a project to build the CCK Endau Kindergarten. The project commenced from May to November 2017, with USG Boral’s involvement for board installation spanning from June to August 2017.

The CCK Endau Kindergarten, developed by MIE Corporate Holdings, is the first high-end double-storey steel structured kindergarten in Malaysia. The kindergarten is situated in Endau, Johor which is approximately 350km from Kuala Lumpur. Its 2738m2 space consists of various facilities including a fully-roofed swimming pool, a full-fledged internal running track, a basketball court, and two badminton courts.

At the start of the project, USG Boral Malaysia initially proposed for the Durock® Cement Board Exterior Drywall Solution to be used for the kindergarten. As the project progressed, we managed to gain trust from the developers. Thanks to the strong technical expertise and detailed drawing supports from the dedicated sales and technical team, we eventually managed to a complete solutions provider for the entire project. Apart from external drywall solutions, other USG Boral products that were used include interior wall and ceilings systems.

We collaborated fully with our client, providing them with comprehensive support in terms of required manpower and resources. Logistics and stocks management were handled professionally by our Customer Service Department, ensuring that deadlines are met with certain boards coming in from as far as Mexico.

As Malaysia is known for its hot and humid weather, the Durock® solution was a suitable candidate for this project. Durock®’s high flexural strength enables it to resist cracking, and combined with other features such as humidity and moisture resistance, as well as ability to withstand to mold and mildew, proved to be an effective deterrent to our country’s hot and rainy climate.

The client also lauded the fast and easy installation of the product, which was perfect for fast-track projects as it eliminates the usual cement mixing and drying time needed by other solutions. The boards are also lightweight, which effectively reduced the strain from the overall structure of the building.
