Quintalinux Lands Multi-Million Dollar Project
HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 21, 2001--Quintalinux Ltd. (Nasdaq: QLNX - news) Tuesday announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, IB Solutions Ltd. (IBSL) has been selected by the Beijing Hehua Real Estate Development Co. Ltd. as the consultant for the intelligent component/element of a major new five-star hotel, office, and apartment complex situated in the heart of Beijing.

The complex, consisting of a 14-story hotel with 450 rooms, a 19-story intelligent office tower, and a 19-story service apartment complex, is estimated to cost approximately US$172 million and is scheduled for December 2002 completion.

As a result, Quintalinux expects to capture (about US$18-34 million) (10-20 percent of the total project cost) worth of contracts. The hotel will become a part of a yet to be announced major world-class hotel chain, and the hotel and service apartments will be managed by a renowned international hotel management group.

The complex will be in a prime location along Jianguomen Nanda Jie, one of Beijing's main thoroughfares, near other international hotels, the Beijing Railroad Station, and the famous China Customs Building. The hotel and apartments will face a lovely scenic garden, enhancing the attractiveness and prestige of the property.

With relevant experience in both Hong Kong and PRC markets, IB Solutions Ltd., the current leading total solutions provider of Intelligent Building designs, leverages on the expertise from each of the seven sister companies under the Quintalinux group. Each company within the group specializes in its own area of building design and construction technology.

Such specialization includes feasibility studies, design specifications, infrastructure planning, facility planning, systems selection and integration, cost management, project management and quality control.

Mr. Chu, chairman of Quintalinux, spoke about the rapid growth of the Intelligent Building industry in Asia.

``As the use of technology has become more and more of a necessity in the current business world and the daily lives of the general public, we believe the demand for high quality `Intelligent' buildings will increase worldwide, including Asia.
