Gammon wins $2.6bn Hong Kong housing project

15 Jun 16 Gammon Construction - Balfour Beatty’s joint venture business in Hong Kong - has won a HK$2.6bn (£236m) commercial and residential development project in Tseung Kwan O.

The 50-50 joint venture between Balfour Beatty and Jardine Matheson has been appointed by Chinachem Group to build six residential towers of 12 to 18 storeys as well as five four-storey houses. In total, the project will provide 857 new homes.

Gammon will use a range of approaches, including aluminum formwork in place of traditional timber formwork for the tower structure and 3D scanning and building information modelling (BIM) to assist with detecting construction programme clashes.

The project is due for completion by the end of 2017.
