Gammon Construction has been awarded a HK$3.7 billion contract by Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited, a wholly-owned innovation and technology company of the Hong Kong government, to construct a new development at Cyberport.
As part of the contract, Gammon will be responsible for the construction of a new 10-storey building that will provide office space, a data services platform, a multi-functional hall and ancillary facilities, as well as enhancements to the adjacent Cyberport waterfront park.
To ensure an efficient project delivery, Gammon will deploy its ‘G-Twin’ technology, which will allow the team to monitor work progress, streamline workflows, and collect and analyse data from various sources to support faster decision making.
“We are delighted that Cyberport has once again selected Gammon to work with them on this expansion project,” said Kevin O’Brien, chief executive of Gammon. “The contract follows on from our design and construction of the foundation and excavation works, and this latest award will see us deliver a complete end-to-end construction partnership.
“We look forward to participating in this important initiative, which seeks to attract more quality innovation and technology companies and start-ups to establish their businesses at Cyberport.”
The main construction works will commence later this year, with completion scheduled by 2025. At construction peak, the project is expected to employ a workforce of more than 1,000 people.
