The VERITAS Design Group Malaysia was founded in 1987 upon the principles of constant innovation and an unwavering commitment to service quality. Originating from Malaysia in the architectural profession, the practice now provides award-winning multi-disciplinary design services from its 6 international offices.

Today the VERITAS Design Group is led by its Group President David Mizan Hashim and Principals Lillian Tay, Azif Nasaruddin, Ng Yiek Seng, Azril Amir Jaafar, Zainal F. Abdul Aziz, Shamsuddin Wahap, Eric Tham, Shah Jaffar and Richard Raymond and is backed by a team of over 330 qualified professionals and professional support staff.

Interior design services are provided by VERITAS Interiors Sdn Bhd, landscape design services are provided by VERITAS Landscape Sdn Bhd and planning services are provided by VERITAS Planning Sdn. Bhd. The firm's head office is located in Kuala Lumpur, with a branch office in Georgetown, Pulau Pinang to handle work in the Northern region and in Johor Bahru to handle work in the Southern region. Although much of its work has been in Malaysia, VERITAS is undertaking an increasing amount of work overseas. VERITAS established its first international office in Dubai in 2005, followed by another in Ho Chi Minh City in 2007, Melbourne in 2010, Mumbai and Portland in 2012 and London, United Kingdom in 2017. In mid-2008, VERITAS Contracts Sdn. Bhd. was established with the intention of rendering professional quantity surveying services. In 2010, VERITAS Environment Sdn Bhd was established to provide sustainable design consultancy services with our team of GBI engineers.

As a result of these capabilities, VERITAS has been honored over the years to serve a distinguished number of local and international Clients. Completed works and award-winning projects by the firm have been featured widely in the local and international media and the Principals have presented their works and ideas at numerous academic and professional forums. In many surveys, VERITAS has emerged as the top Malaysian multi-disciplinary design practice and in BCI Asia’s annual listing, the firm often appears in the number one position for Malaysia.

VERITAS has adopted a flexible and adaptable approach to handling projects, tailored to respond to the specific needs of each particular project and Client. The firm's work is marked not by a fixed stylistic signature, but rather by a consistent approach inspired by the principles of good design and a sensitive response to site and context.

ARCHITECTURE AND PLANNING

VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd was established in 1987 as the original entity within the VERITAS Design Group, and has since experienced rapid growth, expanding into all areas of professional architectural services. Today, despite its relative maturity, VERITAS Architects continues to pursue a dynamic approach to design founded on innovation and the principles of professionalism.

The group’s resources include over 350 staff within its 3 Malaysian offices (Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor) and 6 international offices.

At VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd, the quality and consistency of professional service on each project takes precedence over theoretical design goals. Consequently, the firm’s work is marked not by a fixed stylistic signature, but rather by a consistent approach inspired by the principles of good design, environmental concern and contextual integrity.

VERITAS Planning Sdn Bhd is one of the more recent additions to the VERITAS group of companies. With the increasing demand for specialization in this field, and with the growing amount of planning work being commissioned, VERITAS decided in early 2008 to formally establish this new entity dedicated to planning services of international standard. Master planning and urban design for a variety of vastly different projects has given VERITAS Planning Sdn Bhd considerable exposure in this specialist field. This includes educational and resort master planning, commercial urban in-fill planning, residential and township planning as well as the themed planning of gated communities.

LANDSCAPE DESIGN

VERITAS Landscape Sdn Bhd was originally established in 1996. As one of Malaysia’s leading landscape design firms, it provides professional services in two core areas; landscape design and landscape master planning. During the 22 years of its operations, the firm has established an enviable legacy of completed and ongoing award-winning projects on the ground. Its completed project experience in Malaysia covers residential, educational, leisure, sporting and international visitor destinations. The philosophy of VERITAS Landscape Sdn Bhd is to achieve a symbiosis between the natural and the man-made; whereby neither overwhelms the other. This approach is evident in all of its projects which seamlessly integrate softscape and hardscape into the larger architectural or planning context of the project. VERITAS Landscape Sdn Bhd commissions are as diverse as the subject itself and range from the macro to the micro scale and from urban to rural. Its Client base includes the government sector, private developers and foreign parties
