Pusat Rehabilitasi PERKESO is the first rehabilitation complex in the world that combines medical and vocational rehabilitation with an allied health institute. Under PERKESO’s ‘Return to Work’ programme, disabled patients undergo physical and vocational rehabilitation in order to rejoin the workforce. Located on 55 acres of undulating landscape, a ‘primary spine’ for walking, wheelchair and buggy linked the various clusters of buildings sequentially.
This green certified complex (under the Malaysian ‘Green Building Index’) was designed where nature via lush expansive landscape and ‘spirituality’ is an important element integral to the healing process. Employing universal ‘access for all’ concept and Malaysian Standard (M.S), this project was intended to represent the best planned rehabilitation facility suited to international standards.
The surrounding area is located in the development of Bandar Kesihatan dan Pendidikan Hang Tuah Jaya which will be a medical hub of the state. The area known as the green lung of the Melaka state is suitable for therapeutic, psychological and rehabilitation environment being an advantage for the PERKESO Rehabilitation Center to be able to offer a holistic approach in rehabilitation.
HSS Integrated Sdn Bhd has played an integral role in the success of this project by providing consultancy services for civil, structural, mechanical and electrical works for the design and construction of the overall buildings, infrastructure and utilities.
