Hey MahaNakhon Fans. Thanks to all of you who joined our weekend open house; all 400 of you! On the construction front, we are now prepping the site to welcome our NEW MAIN CONTRACTOR who will take over from the piling stage shortly; the shot below shows the final touches on the ground floor prior to above ground works commencing on both the TOWER and the CUBE.

A big thanks to SEAFCO our piling contractor, whose work is almost complete; while no longer visible, the piling provides the most important base from which we will see MahaNakhon - Bangkok Rising, with our NEW main contractor mobilising to commence work in the next few days.

Tall task - PACE appoints Bouygues-Thai as contractor to build Thailand’s tallest building





Bangkok (8 August 2012) – PACE Development Corporation Plc. and Industrial Buildings Corporation (IBC), recently awarded the contract for the construction of the Bht 19-billion 77-storey MahaNakhon project to Bouygues-Thai Ltd.


Mr. Sorapoj Techakraisri, Chief Executive Officer of PACE Development Corporation Plc. said, “We chose a highly-experienced contractor with access to advanced building technology to meet the tall task of building this uniquely-designed skyscraper with its pixelated profile, and to do so in line with PACE’s exceptional record of delivering units to customers with zero-defects”.

“Bouygues is one of the world’s top three largest construction companies and a technology leader in the construction of high-rise buildings,” Mr. Sorapoj added.

Mr. Jean-Marie Verbrugghe, Managing Director of Bouygues-Thai Limited, said, “We are very proud to have been awarded this important challenge which will leave a prominent and unmistakable profile on this city’s skyline for decades into the future.”

According to Mr. Verbrugghe, MahaNakhon’s pixilated profile makes each of its 77 floors unique which requires special know-how and technology in its construction.

“We will bring in very advanced technology from our parent company in France to enable the construction of MahaNakhon and are confident that we will set a new benchmark in quality construction for a high rise building in Thailand,” he said.





more/1

Set to soar 314 metres above the city, MahaNakhon will be Thailand’s tallest building and an iconic Bangkok landmark when completed in 2015. The piling of MahaNakhon is already completed and the underground section is continuing. The CUBE Lifestyle Retail Center, which is a part of the project, is expected to be completed by end of this year and opened by mid-2013. The MahaNakhon mixed-use development comprises 194 Ritz-Carlton branded luxury residences, a 150-room boutique hotel, and approximately 10,000 square metres of retail space

Hey MahaNakhon Fans...it's easy to forget how long it takes to reach ground level; as Bouygues-Thai mobilise on site (already begun) here's one of the last shots of the Cube at ground level before the work above ground commences, taken recently by Cody (thanks Cody).

The location of the tower, if I am not mistaken, is at the far end of the construction site looking from this angle?
