Hong Kong contract for Vinci
By Andy Brown05 September 2022
Vinci Construction, through its local subsidiary Bachy Soletanche Group Limited, has been selected to build the foundations of a major property complex in Hong Kong’s Central business district.
The contract is worth approximately €80 million (US$79 million) and is scheduled for completion by 2024. The works will be conducted in a highly complex environment, immediately next to an underground urban motorway and the metro and the contract includes the construction of diaphragm walls and bored piles.
A part of the wall will be built at limited height using two compact Hydrofraise machines, one of which will be equipped with grippers for drilling into very hard ground. These machines are designed and manufactured by Soletanche Bachy specifically for excavation works in hard surfaces.
Soletanche Bachy is experienced in foundation and soil technology projects requiring advanced technical expertise. With some 50 years of experience operating in Hong Kong, Soletanche Bachy has participated in numerous large-scale projects in the region, such as the construction of the third runway at Hong Kong International Airport.
