Contract Value

HK$4.75 billion

Construction Period

2019 Q3 – 2021 Q4

The project mainly involves the construction of a 9-storey building block with a 2-storey basement, providing 108,000 sq.m of space. It also includes a footbridge connecting the Data Technology Hub of the adjacent site and a seawater district cooling system. The cooling system which will be used to cool the entire AMC building is a cost-effective and environmental friendly solution for building cooling.
Gammon are implementing methods and approaches that support the Government’s Construction 2.0 initiative, which centres on innovation, professionalisation and revitilisation.

Such approaches include the adoption of ‘integrated digital project delivery’ on the contract, for which centralised and shared building information modelling (BIM) will form a key element. In addition to 3D, 4D and 5D digital models, an 8D model will provide an open design-collaboration platform for all stakeholders.The company also aims to achieve 75% offsite prefabrication of the structural steel works, and 70% off-site modularisation of the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) works. This will provide significant advantages to the works in terms of safety, quality and programme.

The project has also adopted a self-developed digital solution - Inspecto - for site inspections. Comprising of a mobile app, a dashboard and proactive real-time alerts, Inspecto shortens the inspection turnaround time, creates less disturbances on site, and keeps reliable and consistent records for further reference.

The project will benefit multiple industries by providing advanced and scalable manufacturing facilities indicative of the “Re-industrialisation of Hong Kong.”
