THE CHALLENGE
Kampung Baru is a heritage village located right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. However, it is prone to frequent flooding due to its proximity to Sg. Kelang.

Acknowledging the threat to the continued existence of Kampung Baru, both the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) and the Department of Irrigation and Drainage Malaysia (JPS) have collaborated to design a permanent solution that entails the construction of a dual-purpose structure that acts as a mitigation against flooding and also supports a highway above it. The actual site condition is depicted by the cross section attached.

You, as the engineer for this project, have been tasked with the challenge to design a structural solution that solves the flooding permanently and also functions as an embankment for the construction of a world class highway. Your proposed solution must be practical with emphasis on time and cost savings in view of the impending monsoon season and also the space constraints in Kampung Baru. You are expected to exercise your creativity and innovativeness to propose a holistic solution that is both structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing by incorporating ‘green technology’ features.

The proposed solution shall be presented in the form of a scale model measuring not larger than 1m length x 0.5m width x 0.5m height complete with its technical specifications. The cost for constructing the scale model should not exceed RM 200.00.

Each team is required to also present their technical posters and/or multimedia presentation (2 minutes) at the exhibition booth. Maximum size of posters: No more than two A1 size paper. Computer, projector and screen are not provided.
