We work throughout Malaysia, cooperating with community groups, institutions, the private sector and all levels of Government to promote the conservation and preservation of our historic buildings and places. We play a pivotal role in advocacy through a range of activities including heritage education, and we initiate research and documentation of our heritage assets and contribute at international, national and local levels to debates on the quality of our built environment.
Over the years, BWM has developed expertise covering the whole spectrum of the conservation process. Drawing on our membership, we are well equipped to offer a comprehensive range of services in such areas as urban design and planning, architecture, real estate, education, tourism, design and communication, cultural and creative industries and environment and ecology.
Since 1985, BWM has undertaken various building conservation projects including the restoration of Gedung Raja Abdullah (Selangor), Istana Tengku Long (Terengganu), Rumah Bomoh (Perak), Rumah Kutai (Perak), No 2 Jalan Stonor (Kuala Lumpur), No 8 Heeren Street (Malacca) and most recently, Stadium Merdeka (Kuala Lumpur). Many of these projects have won accolades and awards locally and internationally.
In addition, for the past 13 years, BWM has been enhancing its skills in the management of heritage sites including the UNESCO award winning restoration project of Suffolk House, Penang. Combined with our involvement in cultural heritage tourism and the development of heritage walks and tours, this puts us in a unique position to provide integrated and sustainable management of heritage sites in Malaysia.
BWM is a registered charity, and completely independent of government.
