We are incredibly proud to offer our expertise to the city’s largest-ever commercial development which is worths an estimated HK$70 billion. The project scope covers significantly in material supply, fabrication, and installation of hundreds of built-up cruciform stanchions for the superstructure of 2 commercial-office towers in phase 1. The towers, at height of 148 and 122 meters respectively will be constructed in the 59,735 sqm site atop of the High-Speed West Kowloon Express Railway Link Terminus. With our proven track record of delivering faster and safer projects, we cannot wait for the second phase to commence.
The project’s total gross floor area is 3.16 million square feet providing two towers of grade A offices, facilities for retails, high-quality green public open space, and a trail that integrates with the nearby West Kowloon Cultural District, thus creating easy access to the waterfront. Being one of the highlights, an outdoor observation deck with views of Victoria Harbour on the top floor of the tallest building, will be open to the public.
Sun Hung Kai Properties our client, believes that this iconic project can boost commerce, trades, tourism and benefits the residents nearby alongside the West Kowloon Cultural District. The shopping plaza and public space are expected to be completed during 2025 with the entire project to be finished off in 2028.
Followed by the success of promoting the benefits of steel structure to client’s project, the mixed-use commercial development in 98 How Ming Street, and the recent success in project delivery of Government Data Center in Cheung Sha Wan, Goldwave was honored to be the structural steel contractor for structural design, fabrication, and installation of phase I development. We strongly believe that our effective steelwork proposal and solid project references will be considered with high degree of confidence for the next phase of development.
Goldwave offered a one-stop-solution design, material supply, steel components fabrication, and build for two highly efficient steel frame twin towers of total tonnage reach 8,000 tons. The use of steel structure created an additional 5% net leasable area and a ceiling height of up to 3 meters. The value-engineered design of slimmer main columns maximizes the flexibility of internal layouts and enhances the greater satisfactory of user’s experience.
The proposed commercial development comprises 2 commercial towers (Tower A and B) with approximately 30 floors’ storeys, with ground floor level for the driveway and access to adjoining public road and 3-level of the basement for car parking/ loading and unloading bay. The total height of towers from the proposed ground floor level (+6.65mPD) to the main roof is approximately 125m. The towers are linked by a two-storey high podium, which is comprised of retail shops, a podium garden, and transformer rooms. 1.5m soil load is considered as provisional podium garden loading. 3F is mainly for E&M plant rooms. From 5F to 30F are typical floors for office use. There are three basement floors for car parks. Heavy good vehicles (HGV and EVA are designed to travel on the proposed ground floor (G/F) level only.
The building will be composed of two different structural materials and reinforced concrete. Typical office floors will be built by structural steel frames with a reinforced concrete central core. The structural slab is a reinforced concrete slab with steel decking as temporary formwork.
SCOPE OF PROJECT
Structural Steel Frame Design, Supply, Fabrication and Installation
The Phase II extension of the Union Hospital included four additional floors to be built on top of the existing hospital which surgery facilities in operation. Goldwave’s outperformed alternative steel frame solution and construction methodology mitigated the big concern of disruption of noise and smoke disruption.
The extension occupies a total floor area of 6,000sqm and accommodates 100 extra beds, a centre for patients undergoing minor surgery, consultation rooms for specialists, and offices.
SCOPE OF WORK
Supply, Fabrication and Installation of structural steel frame
Goldwave’s in-house Special Project Team was proud to have recently completed a single lift of a 40 meters clear span heavy-strength steel structure frame (S460 grade steel), total weight exceeding 1,000 Tons. By utilizing modern-day technology of strand jacking methods along with precision equipment, our heavy lifting methodology and technique were designed and implemented around best safety practices, high quality, and cost-effective on-time delivery.
The plot in Middle Road, a former multi-storey car park next to the Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel and Towers was a unique and well-located site to be redeveloped into a 22 storeys Ginza-Style commercial complex of gross floor area 42,000 square meters.
The Developer had selected Goldwave’s steel structure solution over traditional concrete construction due to the rapid speed of construction schedule, it generated higher building efficiency of usable area which translated into value-added economic benefits.
Goldwave was honored to be appointed by Hip Hing Construction (China) Co. Ltd. as the client’s nominated structural steel contractor to design, fabricate and erect the superstructure of a 200 meters height (45-storey) mixed-use commercial complex situated at the prime location in Guiwan area, Qianhai commercial district.
This project crafted a new milestone of Goldwave to have our first footprints in the map of Greater China.
SCOPE OF PROJECT
Structural Design, Supply, Fabrication and On-site Erection
Goldwave’s Smart Steel Structure Solution designed for this Mega Commercial Complex demonstrated specifically how a steel structure solution outperformed a conventional reinforced concrete solution. Faster construction time, greater precision on-site due to factory controlled fabrication off site, higher productivity on site, fewer and smaller columns creating more efficient use of the usable area. We have since become Sun Hung Kai Properties’ long-term Strategic partner.
SCOPE OF PROJECT
Supply, Fabrication and Installation of structural steel stanchions
H Code is a pioneering leisure development that is designed for flexibility and versatility. It is located in Upper Pottinger Stone Street in Central, an area of Hong Kong known for its ultra-high density and compact business nature.
The site was considered not buildable by using traditional building methods because of its site constraints. Goldwave provided an effective steel frame solution that overcame the challenges of geographical complexity as the site is located on a slope; low capacity foundation had been built and the tiny site area provided very limited storage for building materials. The 22-storey building structure of 12,632 square meters of gross floor area was completed in 14 months. H-code itself won the building design award from the American Institute of Architects.
SCOPE OF PROJECT
Structural design, Fabrication and Installation of structural steel frame
To cope with the emerging demand for temporary medical facility which was put into use in 2020 fall/ winter. Goldwave completed the cabin steel frame within 3 to 4 weeks from contract awarded. Material delivery, 24 hours round-the-clock fabrication off-site towards an uninterrupted installation schedule on-site.
SCOPE OF PROJECT
Supply, Fabrication and installation within 2 months
