Balfour Beatty JV wins £146m HK project

14 Apr 16 Balfour Beatty’s joint venture business Gammon Construction has won a HK$1.6bn (£146m) contract to build the Lee Garden Three project in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.

The building will have 20 floors of offices sitting atop a five-level retail podium. There will also be a five-level basement, with about 200 parking spaces.

Lee Garden Three, which is owned and developed by Hysan Development, will be built on the former site of Sunning Plaza and Sunning Court. Itwill form a part of Hysan’s cluster of commercial buildings in Causeway Bay, fronting Hysan Avenue.

Lee Garden Three will be Hysan and Gammon’s second major partnership in recent years, following Hysan Place which was also a Hysan-developed commercial complex constructed by Gammon.

“In terms of office space, Lee Garden Three will provide a much needed supply for Hong Kong’s core commercial area,” said Siu Chuen Lau, deputy chairman and chief executive officer of Hysan Development. “Situated below the quality offices will be the retail shops and food and beverage establishments that are part of our Lee Gardens hub. The entire new complex will be an integral part of our Lee Gardens community that attracts both locals and visitors alike.”

Thomas Ho, chief executive of Gammon said, “We are delighted to have been selected by Hysan as the construction partner of this redevelopment project. Our team is committed to delivering maximum efficiency, a smooth running project and minimal disruption to the public.”

Latest construction technologies such as Building Information Modeling, 4D modeling and 3D scanning will be adopted to enhance the project’s environmental friendliness and construction efficiency, he said.

The project is due for completion in winter 2017.
