UK-based consultancy and construction firm Mace has secured a contract from Mai House Hospitality Group to manage the construction of Mai House Hoi An, a luxury golf and hotel resort in Hoi An, Vietnam.
Covering a gross floor area of 105,000m², the five star resort will be situated on the main beach road between Hoi An and Danang.
This is the first hotel project secured by the company’s Vietnam business. Mace will provide several services, including design management, construction management and project management.
The resort has been designed in the style of a Vietnamese lantern and has been modelled on the Burj al-Arab in Dubai.
The resort will have 300 rooms, 50 villas, 100 apartments and 100 shop houses integrated in front of the Vietnamese golf course, Montgomerie Link.
Mace Vietnam general director John Campbell said: “We are very excited to be involved in this iconic five star hotel project. The work done with the client over the last six months has paid off and the delivery promises to be an exciting one for all involved.”
Mai House Hospitality Group spokesperson said: “Mace has been making big moves across Vietnam and we are looking forward to working with them on this project. The design of Mai House Hoi An is something never before attempted in Vietnam and we have every faith that the team will do a great job.”
Previously, Mace secured approval from South Cambridgeshire and Cambridge City planning authorities for a 200,000ft² commercial development on the site of Cambridge Science Park, UK.
The development unit of Mace has acquired long leasehold from Trinity College and created a high-quality scheme. Architects Scott Brownrigg has designed the development.
Located at the gateway to the Science Park, the site benefits from new infrastructure investments, including the new Cambridge North train station, the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway, and improvements to the A14.
The project is expected to help meet the need for high-quality commercial space to support the city’s long-term economic growth and continue to attract national and global companies.
