Pacific Place – Phase II

Completed Project

New technologies shorten construction cycle on challenging site

Phase II of Pacific Place involved the construction of an integrated complex comprising retail, hotels and offices in one of Hong Kong’s busiest districts.

To minimise disruption to the surrounding area, Dragages brought in the best technology available worldwide to speed up construction time. An innovative phased approach to the multi-level excavation work allowed building work to start on completed stages, while further excavation continued concurrently.

To accelerate the building works, Dragages’ parent company, the Bouygues Group, introduced the table form system, as well as powerful tower cranes allowing for the rapid lifting of table forms. The result was a four-day-per-floor construction time, and completion of the two hotel towers’ structure within 13 months.
