Gammon Construction, Balfour Beatty’s Hong Kong joint venture, has been awarded a contract to construct a residential development project at Tseung Kwan O Town Lot No. 93 worth HK$2.6 billion.

Gammon will employ a range of innovative methods 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.

Thomas Ho, Chief Executive of Gammon said, “Our team is excited to work with Chinachem Group to deliver excellent and meticulous building works that will add to their impressive and diverse range of high-quality properties. We are looking forward to the unveiling of this new phase of development in the Southern part of Tseung Kwan O.”  

The project includes the construction of six 12-18-storey residential towers, and five four-storey houses which together will provide 857 new homes.

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