CPP Wind Engineering Consultants, an internationally recognized leader in wind engineering services, announces the expansion of its global services to Southeast Asia with the acquisition of the Venturi Asia wind tunnel facility assets. CPP will operate Southeast Asia’s first commercial wind tunnel testing facility dedicated to the built environment. This acquisition of assets adds a fourth wind tunnel to CPP’s expansive portfolio.
“We’re excited to bring in the operations team at Venturi Asia as part of the CPP team and offer our client’s local wind engineering services in Southeast Asia,” said Oliver Napp, CPP Wind Engineering CEO.
“Given the international expertise and resources that CPP brings to bear, the directors of Venturi Asia decided that our wind tunnel facility built entirely by local Malaysian resources will most effectively serve Malaysia and other ASEAN countries as part of CPP’s array of wind tunnel testing facilities,” said Masoud Moinfar, Venturi Asia’s Managing Director.
CPP’s team remains committed to transforming state-of-the-art Wind Engineering services by providing clients worldwide with the information necessary to design safe and sustainable structures. Its client-centric consultancy includes structural design guidance to optimize material requirements in all building structures especially high-rise and large-span wind-sensitive structures. CPP environmental services can improve the amenity of outdoor spaces for their intended use, reduce the energy consumption of ventilation systems in building and industrial developments and maximize the potential for renewable energy generation.
Dr. Matt Glanville, CPP’s VP of Business Development, said, “Over the past two decades, CPP Wind has completed wind tunnel testing on many infrastructure and tower projects that have transformed the Kuala Lumpur skyline. Malaysia is dear to CPP, and we have developed many enduring friendships both in Malaysia and across the region. This was a very comfortable decision and allows us to repay our client loyalty with a local wind tunnel facility”.
