Balfour Beatty JV lands £200m Hong Kong contract

4 Jun 17 Balfour Beatty’s joint venture Gammon Construction has won a HK$2bn (£200m) water park project in Hong Kong.

The contract for Ocean Park Corporation involves the construction of what will be Hong Kong’s first year-round, all-weather water-park. A workforce of 750 will be engaged at construction peak.

Ocean Park Water World at Tai Shue Wan will cover an area of over 693,000 square feet. The project  includes construction of the main building structure and fit-out and installation of various indoor and outdoor attractions. Gammon Construction will also carry out mechanical and electrical services installation and other building services work to support the water park’s specialist systems including wave generators and a water filtration plant.

The building has been designed to take advantage of the view of the South China Sea and to maximise the amount of natural light reaching the interior. It features extensive glass walling and shell-shaped roofing with a translucent skylight system, which reduces the requirement for artificial lighting.

Gammon will take a proactive role in the value engineering process in collaboration with Ocean Park Corporation, in order to create cost-effective solutions. lean technologies such as building information modelling (BIM) will be leveraged to maximise efficient coordination.
