Exhibition - ARCHIDEX 2010
Colourcoil Industries recently participated in the internationally-renowned and much anticipated Architecture, Interior Design and Building Exhibition 2010 which was held from July 1-4, at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).

This was the 3rd time Colourcoil participated in ARCHIDEX, the first time being in 2006.

We are delighted to note that Colourcoil Industries was the only Sabah-based company to have participated in this grand scale event, which was participated by more than 300 exhibitors and visited by more than 30,000 people mostly consisting of architects, interior designers and property developers from all over the world.

Visitors to our booth were very excited to find out more about the new PVF2 Series pre-painted steel in Kool solar-reflective colours, complying with the Malaysian Green Building Index and especially the United State’s Energy Star programme requirements.

To highlight the difference in solar reflectance between normal PVF2 coated steel and PVF2 coated steel which were in our Kool solar-reflective colours, we showcased 2 model houses each with the 2 different coated steel as their roofs, and radiated infra-red lighting on the roof surfaces to simulate the sun’s solar rays.

Obviously the model house which used our pre-painted steel in our Kool solar-reflective colour gave a lower reading in roof surface temperature and inside attic temperature compared to the other model house using just normal pre-painted steel. This enabled visitors to visually see the difference and understand the importance of selecting pre-painted steel containing our Kool solar-reflective colours to enable them to have a cooler building environment and contribute to a more energy-efficient building system.

Colourcoil Industries wishes to thank all the visitors to our booth during the exhibition for their kind attention and their continuous support. We definitely look forward to participate in more exciting and bigger events in the future and to seeing you all again.

Public Relations - ACEM Dinner
The Association of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM) Sabah Branch, recently held its 17th Biennial Dinner on 17th July 2010 at a leading hotel in the Kota Kinabalu city. Colourcoil Industries was proud to be the stage and backdrop sponsor for the grand event, a testament of Colourcoil’s strong and solid professional relationship with leading professional consultants in the country and in the state especially.

The Guest of Honour for the event was Sabah Deputy Chief Minister, Yang Berhormat Datuk Raymond Tan Tsu Kiah who is also the Sabah State Minister of Industrial Development. Among his main messages in his speech fwas for all practicing engineers to compete and market themselves at the national level and advance to the international playing field. He congratulated ACEM for being one of the founding bodies and initiators of the country’s Green Building Index (GBI), Malaysia’s own green-building rating system, regulated by the Malaysian Green Building Confederation (MGBC) of which Colourcoil Industries is an Industry Partner and member of.

The major highlight of the evening was the installation of the new ACEM Sabah Branch Chairman Ir. Lo Chung Chiun and his new committee members, from outgoing Chapter Chairman Ir. Joe Chow Wai Ming and his outgoing committee members.Raising The Bar” was chosen as the theme for the event, to encourage the local engineers to continue to forge ahead and keep raising the bar to be counted amongst the world’s best. As the new chairman, Ir. Lo hoped that through the award of large projects to Sabah-based consulting firms by the state government, there will be an increase in transfer of technology and technical know-how which in turn would enable them to compete both locally and abroad.

Colourcoil Industries wishes to thank the organizers and other members who worked with us in coordinating the setting up of the backdrop and stage and for their continuous support. We wish the new Chairman and his new team a productive year ahead in striving to excel to world-class professionals levels.
