SHKP wins Construction Excellence Awards for ION Orchard
and Orchard Residences in Singapore
Hong Kong, June 18, 2012: Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) won BCA Construction Excellence Awards for its ION Orchard joint-venture project and Orchard Residences in Singapore. SHKP has earned extensive international recognition for its commitment to exceptional quality.
The annual awards are presented by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) of Singapore to honour outstanding projects. Entries are judged on comprehensive criteria including safety, quality, sustainability and user-friendliness.
The ION Orchard project won a Building Excellence Award with the highest score in the commercial/mixed development buildings category. It was carefully planned to ensure effective use of resources and special cutting machines were used to reduce the time and noise from cutting and excavation of separation walls. Top-down construction reduced the noise in the basement.
Another Building Excellence Award went to Orchard Residences in the residential buildings - SG$1,500/m2 & above category. A self-climbing steel formwork system reduced the use of wood in construction and pre-cast concrete was used to reduce storage on site.
ION Orchard won a BCA Green Mark Gold Award in 2007 and Orchard Residences won a BCA Design and Engineering Safety Excellence Award in 2011 for incorporating green elements and safety measures in their designs and construction.
