Balfour Beatty awarded $200m Hong Kong office contract

Balfour Beatty’s Hong Kong joint venture, Gammon Construction, has been awarded a US$200m commercial development by the Hysan Development Company.

Gammon will construct the Lee Garden Three Project in the heart of Causeway Bay in Hong Kong.

The project will include the construction of 20 floors of grade A offices above a five-level retail podium of shops and leisure outlets. There will also be a five-level basement, with around 200 parking spaces.  

The latest construction technologies such as building information modeling and 3D scanning will be adopted to enhance the project’s environmental friendliness and construction efficiency.

Lee Garden Three, which is owned and developed by Hysan, will be constructed on the former site of Sunning Plaza and Sunning Court. This will 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 built by Gammon.

Siu Chuen Lau, Hysan Development’s chief executive, said: "In terms of office space, Lee Garden Three will provide a much-needed supply for Hong Kong’s core commercial area."

The project is due for completion in winter 2017.
