Infrastructure group Balfour Beatty’s Far East joint venture (JV), Gammon Construction, has secured an HK$2.9bn ($369.7m) contract from Gold Topmont to build a luxury residential project in the Homantin area, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

As part of the project, the company will construct six residential towers, a clubhouse, outdoor swimming pool, and a two-level basement with parking areas.

Gammon is planning to deploy several technologies, including 3D scanning for data collection, which will ensure an accurate and swift survey process.

Other technologies to be used for the project comprise defect management tools such as drones and infrared cameras.

“We are delighted to be trusted to deliver the full completed works for the Homantin residential project.”

The company will also use exoskeletons for manual handling to ensure personnel safety. This aims to reduce physical strain and increase productivity for repetitive tasks.

Gammon Construction chief executive Thomas Ho said: “After the successful completion of the foundation works, we are delighted to be trusted to deliver the full completed works for the Homantin residential project.
