WCN Editorial Team 30 Sep 2021 ASIA

Balfour Beatty’s 50:50 joint venture, Gammon, has secured a HK$2.67bn (£246m) contract for the development of four residential towers in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Under the contract, Gammon will be responsible for the construction of 845, one-to-three-bedroom apartments, situated atop the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Ho Man Tin Station, an underground station serving Kwun Tong Line and Tuen Ma Line.

Gammon will make use of off-site, precast methods for the delivery of the building’s facade as well as a digital supply chain dashboard, known as ‘STAMP’, to track the delivery and installation of materials.

Furthermore, the firm will use ‘Inspecto’, a cloud-based platform that covers the site inspection process among contractors, consultants and clients, while recording and protecting data.

Gammon chief executive Thomas Ho said: “Building on our ongoing relationship with Chinanchem Group, we are delighted to have been awarded this latest residential contract in Hong Kong.

“Demonstrating our unrivalled knowledge and expertise, we will utilise innovative solutions and technologies throughout; ensuring the seamless delivery of this essential and sustainable project.”

Development works are expected to commence later this year with completion slated for 2024.

At peak period of construction, the project will employ 1,500 people.
