Hong Kong

Client: Apollo Global Real Estate

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Role: Project and Construction Management

 Show Project Details

Located in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central Business District, the 28-story 50 Connaught Road Central building includes a two-level retail area and 23 floors of offices with supporting facilities. With its combined glass and limestone façade, the building differs from many other buildings in Hong Kong, which typically use glass and steel curtain wall systems. The building, designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern, was completed in April 2011.
Parsons Brinckerhoff provided project and construction management services from support during the acquisition and demolition of the existing buildings to project and construction management of the new tower. The firm’s responsibilities included the management of the interior fitting-out works and management of consultant team members including architectural, civil, structural, building services, façade, and lighting specialists.
A LEED- (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building, 50 Connaught Central incorporates a number of green design solutions such as optimizing water efficiency and energy performance.

About Program Management/ Construction Management

Program management (PM) is a partnership with owners that fosters effective, cost-efficient and innovative project delivery.  Acting as an extension of client staff, the program manager protects the client’s interests in all areas of project implementation from planning and design, through procurement and construction, and into operations and maintenance.

We can assemble a program management organization capable of taking a job from conceptualization through the environmental processes and permits; financing and funding; design, procurement and construction; and start-up and operations - all with full involvement of the client, and with full disclosure to the public and project stakeholders.

For our experts, program management means working with our clients to anticipate the key issues that could impact successful completion of not only the individual projects that make up a program, but the overall program itself.  Our PM services enable clients to serve their customers - and their communities.

We also offer construction management (CM) services geared to a project’s size and complexity, and backed by a corporate commitment to total quality management.  On complex assignments entailing numerous projects and multiple contractors, our involvement extends from overseeing the planning and design phases to managing bidding and procurement and full CM services.

Appropriate for single projects or as part of our PM responsibilities, our CM services begin during design with schedule and budget evaluations, constructibility reviews, and accuracy checks on cost estimates. Weighing project alternatives and structuring bid packages for lowest cost are also part of our responsibilities, as are monitoring and coordinating daily construction activities.
