局海外經營取得重大突破
 
作者:褚臻安 徐平
  6月17日,從香港傳來喜訊,王歐陽(香港)有限公司與中建三局——香港協興建築聯營公司正式簽訂香港Mega Tower鋼結構工程施工承包合同。
該工程位于香港九龍地鐵站上蓋地盤G,高490米,118層,建築面積約40萬平方米,鋼結構總用鋼量32000余噸,合同造價7.56億港幣(其中我局占60%),工期3年,工程預付款2400萬港幣。該工程是迄今爲止以我局名義在香港承接的合同額最大的項目,標志著我局海外經營工作取得重大突破。
該項目從工程跟蹤到合同簽訂,時間跨度3年,是繼上海環球和北京央視工程後,我局中標的又一超大型標志性工程。
目前,該工程前期的各項籌備工作正在緊張地進行之中。

"World-Class Architecture, World-Class Harbour"
Sun Hung Kai Properties Unveils "Harbour Living Gallery"
Presenting A Brand New Harbour Living Concept


4 August 2005

Hong Kong people are proud of the world-renowned Victoria Harbour's scenery, featuring world-class architecture along the coastline which further illuminates the harbour. To enhance this exclusive harbour environment, projects on both sides of the harbour were strategically built by Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP) to provide residents with the best living standard.

To highlight these flawless buildings and the commitment to perfect living, a "Harbour Living Gallery" has been set up at One ifc titled "World-Class Architecture, World-Class Harbour". Today's opening ceremony was officiated by Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency Senior Project Manager Tim Mak, Marketing Director Edgar Yang and Executive Director Eric Chow.

The gallery comprises two parts - "World-Class Harbour Buildings" and "World-Class Living". Five landmark projects will be glimmering beside Victoria Harbour, each with attractive views of the splendid harbour. The five projects include Harbour Gateway, which consists of ifc and Mega Tower, and 3 residential projects - The Arch, Harbour Green and Manhattan Hill.

The ifc has become a focal point of Hong Kong's world class financial expertise. The elegantly streamlined project is made up of the internationally renowned commercial building and a large-scale shopping complex. Two ifc, an 88-storey building, is the tallest in Hong Kong. Located in Kowloon Station, Mega Tower will be one of the tallest buildings in the world and it will undoubtedly become another landmark for Hong Kong.

Of the residential developments, The Arch - with its unique and distinctive architectural design and the Sky Club equipped with a pool 500 ft. above sea level - demonstrates a bold yet tasteful statement of "World-Class Architecture". In close proximity, the Harbour Green is a pioneer of "CEO Living" - a new living concept overlooking Victoria Harbour. Manhattan Hill, a blend of contemporary "Manhattan" attitude with glittering harbour views, is another sparkling project that creates an energetic cosmopolitan lifestyle.

Sun Hung Kai Real Estate Agency Marketing Director Edgar Yang said: "With the natural harbour and a selection of world-class architecture, Victoria Harbour is the most popular scenic attraction in Hong Kong. The resplendent night view of the harbour truly reflects the character of Hong Kong elites - energetic, trend-setting, worldly and full of know-how."

Edgar pointed out that SHKP has strategically introduced the unique "Harbour Living Concept" into the "Harbour Projects" to provide a high quality living style. This includes offering the greatest brands from all areas for the sake of satisfying the residents' desire for world-class living.

The gallery is located at 1/F, One ifc, and is open to the public from 5 Aug until 22 Aug, between 10 am and 9 pm.

I have a question about the glass bladed sides on the top of the tower. does anyone know what function they have. I can´t find a message about this. can you go in there or is it only for keeping from the wind?


(Sorry for my english)

Purposes:
1. Mainly blocking telecommunication equipment from being seen outside the building.
2. Decoration to make the sky color and the extended glass "merge" together, so there would be a gradual visual transition between the building and the sky.

I adore the design of this tower. The way the sides seem to be seperating from the core, like an element of a plant drying off the stem and peeling away gives it such a lightness. It's a masterpiece.
