This joint venture of Balfour Beatty and Jardine Matheson is contracted to deliver the 108,000-square metre industrial facility, including a seawater district cooling system. The works will include all mechanical, electrical and plumbing services, the building façade and steelworks. This facility aims to cool the AMC building in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way.

This latest success is testament to our proven experience in constructing complex buildings and our market leading engineering and technical capability,” Gammon’s chief executive Thomas Ho said.
Gammon will use BIM, modularisation and off-site manufacturing techniques to improve safety, quality and speed of work. Early works have started in June 2019 and are expected to be completed in 2021. The project will employ approximately 1,800 workers at its construction peak. ― Construction+ Online
