Vinci to build foundations for property development in Hong Kong

WCN Editorial Team 2 Sep 2022 ASIA BUILDINGS

Vinci Construction, via its subsidiary Bachy Soletanche, has been chosen to build the foundations of a property complex in Hong Kong’s Central business district.

The project is expected to become a future centrepiece on Hong Kong’s new waterfront.

The contract, worth about €80m, requires Vinci to build diaphragm walls and bored piles.

The project is slated to finish by 2024.

It will be built adjacent to an underground urban motorway and the metro.

A portion of the wall will be constructed at a limited height by leveraging two compact Hydrofraise machines, of which one will feature grippers for drilling into hard ground.

These machines have been manufactured by Soletanche Bachy for digging into hard surfaces.

In May, Sogea-Satom, a subsidiary of Vinci Construction, was appointed by the Côte d’Ivoire Ministry of Equipment and Road Maintenance to reinstate a stretch of the Coastal Road between Dabou and Grand Lahou.

This road links Ivory Coast’s two main port cities, Abidjan and San Pedro.

The €97m worth project features reinstating 93km of road, broadening the road by over a 10km section ahead of Dabou, and enhancing the drainage and wastewater network to decrease the risk of flooding.
