Balfour Beatty announces its 50:50 Far East joint venture, Gammon Construction, has been awarded the Homantin luxury residential project by Gold Topmont Limited.

The project, worth HK$2.9 billion will become an iconic landmark in the prestigious Homantin residential area in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The project involves the construction of six residential towers, a clubhouse, outdoor swimming pool, and a two-level basement with carpark areas.

To ensure the project’s safe and efficient delivery Gammon will deploy a wide range of innovative technologies including 3D scanning for data collection, which will ensure an accurate and swift survey process, as well as defect management tools such as Drones and InfraRed Cameras.

The wellbeing of the workforce will be safeguarded by the use of exoskeletons for manual handling to reduce physical strain and enhance productivity for repetitive tasks.

Thomas Ho, Chief Executive of Gammon said, “After the successful completion of the foundation works we are delighted to be trusted to deliver the full completed works for the Homantin residential project. The successful delivery of schemes such as the Mount Nicholson and the Le Cap residential development is a testament to Gammon’s experience in the construction of high-end residential buildings which require excellent craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.”

Gammon has been working on the foundations of the project since 2017 with project completion expected in 2020. A workforce of 1,100 will be employed during peak construction.
