A hattrick of piling contracts worth a total of £9 million has been won by Kvaerner Construction’s Hong Kong-based company, Gammon Construction.
Two are with Gammon’s long-term associate, the Hong Kong Housing Authority, which it is currently working with on ten contracts with a total value of £400 million. Both are for the Tseung Kwan O development in the New Territories.
The largest, worth £4.2 million (HK$ 52.9m), is for the design and construction of foundations for three 41-storey blocks, one 36-storey block, an eight-storey secondary school, a four-storey viewing tower, a pedestrian footbridge and a series of tower screen walls and car parks.
A similar £3.4 million (HK$43.5m) scheme is for the design and construction of foundations for two 41-storey blocks, one eight-storey secondary school, a four-storey viewing tower, a pedestrian footbridge as well as a series of screen walls and car parks.
In a third £1.4 million (HK$18m) job, Gammon is constructing the foundations of the Kowloon Canton Railway Corporation’s eight-storey headquarters. Working for a Sun Fook Kong joint venture in the New Territories, Gammon is due to complete the project by the end of the summer.
