Leighton Asia to Design and Construct Tung Chung Hospital in Hong Kong

Leighton Asia, in a joint venture with Able Engineering Co Ltd, has secured a A$245 million contract to design and construct phase one of the new Tung Chung Hospital on Lantau Island, Hong Kong

North Lantau is one of the strategic growth areas under planning in Hong Kong. To cater for the development of Lantau Island (including Tung Chung), the growth of the local population and the fact that Hong Kong International Airport and some other major tourist facilities are situated on Lantau Island, the Government of HKSAR decided to develop an acute hospital in Tung Chung, a new Town in North Lantau Island.

The hospital is being developed by the Architectural Services Department of the Government of HKSAR and the contract works includes the design and construction of the eight storey, 160 bed hospital block together with associated building services and external works. The construction floor area of the building is approximately 43,500 square metres.

When completed, phase one of the Tung Chung Hospital will provide 80 beds for in-patient emergency medicine, 80 beds for in-patient extended care, ambulatory care services including 20 day beds for surgeries/procedures, community care services, diagnostic and treatment services, and support services including pharmacy and administrative services.

The contract works will commence in January 2010 with completion scheduled for mid 2012.
Hamish Tyrwhitt, Leighton Asia’s managing director said “Leighton Asia has completed many significant public building projects in Hong Kong and has a longstanding working relationship with the Architectural Services Department. We value this relationship and looking forward to providing another important facility for our community”
