To celebrate its latest green township development – Bandar Rimbayu, IJM Land Berhad is inviting members of the public to pitch in by contributing recyclable materials for its Bandar Rimbayu sales gallery reception area. “We have mooted this unique green initiative to celebrate our new Bandar Rimbayu project, as it is one of the first green townships that we are developing, besides being one of the first few big green townships in Malaysia. As such, we wanted to do something memorable and meaningful and we hit on the idea of a multi-prong approach, combining green practices, contributions from the community and celebrating Malaysian creativity and design,” said IJM Land Bhd Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Soam Heng Choon.

The Bandar Rimbayu sales gallery located close to the Kota Kemuning township will feature a reception table, lamps, and lounge chairs all made using recycled materials. The reception table will consist of a glass table top placed on two blocks of compressed recycled aluminium cans wrapped in clear glass. It is estimated that 36,000 cans will be needed in total. The sales gallery is targeted for completion by the 4th quarter of 2012.

Meanwhile, four TetraBox Lamps, which are award-winning designs by architect and designer Ed Chew, will be constructed from an estimated 2,000 Tetra Brik boxes in total.

“Malaysians love box drinks but these boxes often end up in landfills and very few are actually recycled. The lamp is my small effort to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills, and I am glad a leading corporation like IJM is taking up the call to reuse waste materials,” Chew said.

The new sales gallery will also boast eight lounge chairs constructed from recycled cardboard cores from A1-size paper rolls. The eight lounge chairs will require an estimated 320 paper tubes in total.

“Indeed, Malaysia is not short of award-winning green innovations as not only is the TetraBox Lamp the winner of Inhabitat’s Bright Ideas Lighting Design, it should also be noted that all of the three types of furnishings and fittings are to be constructed without glue or adhesives,” Dato’ Soam added.

Members of the public can contribute aluminium cans, Tetra Brik boxes (1-litre only) and A1 paper cores (typically used for large sheets of printing paper found in building consultants’ offices and printing businesses) at Wisma IJM, in Jalan Yong Shook Lin, Petaling Jaya or at the offices of Canal City Construction Sdn Bhd at No 7A & 7G, Jalan Anggerik Vanilla P 31/P, Kota Kemuning, Seksyen 31, 40460 Shah Alam beginning March 2012.

Bandar Rimbayu’s maiden product, “The Chimes” is expected to be launched in the second half of 2012.  The Chimes consists of 526 units of double storey and 2-1/2 storey link homes. Priced competitively, these homes will appeal to many who are looking for landed properties in a young and dynamic green township. Log on to www.ijmland.com to register
