Surbana Jurong and Lantera Sejahtera Indonesia (LSI), a leading Indonesia-based cost and project management consultancy, have signed a strategic partnership agreement to provide complementary consultancy capabilities to advance urban and infrastructure developments in Indonesia.
Under the agreement, Surbana Jurong Indonesia and LSI will harness their combined expertise to provide clients with complete consultancy services for urban and infrastructure development projects. Surbana Jurong will bring architecture and engineering expertise, whilst LSI will provide cost estimation and management through all stages of the project.
Surbana Jurong has a long presence in Indonesia and a proven track record of over three decades partnering with local counterparts to undertake a range of national urban and infrastructure projects. These include creating masterplans for transit-oriented developments (TODs) and industrial parks to architectural design for aerotropolis and construction supervision services.
Among notable projects that Surbana Jurong has been involved in Indonesia are masterplanning for Walini Transit-Oriented Development (TOD), Kertajati Aerocity, Nongsa Digital Economy Hub, Industrial City of Subang as well as the construction supervision services conducted by Surbana Jurong’s subsidiary, SMEC, for the Palembang LRT project, the first operational LRT system.
LSI has been collaborating with local and overseas partners since 1972 to ensure the successful delivery of projects of all sizes in all sectors. The company has carried out the infrastructural works on 300 ha of the reclaimed Turtle Island in Bali, at Gading Serpong Residential City in West Java, at Taman Dayu residential estate in Pandaan, East Jawa as well as the recent revitalisation of the Semanggi intersection in Jakarta.
Wong Heang Fine, group CEO of Surbana Jurong said, “Our partnership with Lantera Sejahtera Indonesia demonstrates our commitment to Indonesia. Indonesia’s growing middle-class population, geographic position, urban and infrastructure development, alongside its focus on human capital, put it on the global economic stage. The pandemic has caused delays to some projects but the government’s commitment to ongoing reform will undoubtedly further advance smart and sustainable urban development in Indonesia.”
Peter Robinson, president director of Lantera Sejahtera Indonesia added, “It is a great honour and a great opportunity to partner Surbana Jurong in bringing to reality these projects, which are so important to the development of Indonesia. The experience and expertise brought together by our two companies is unmatched and is unreservedly placed at the disposal of those parties, whether from within Indonesia or from overseas, which are focused on improving the lives of the people of Indonesia.”
