New offices for the Hong Kong airport authority

Hong Kong

Project owner: Airport Authority Hong Kong
Project manager: Dragages Hong Kong

Hong Kong international airport, located on Lantau island, around 30 kilometres from Kowloon, is vital in driving the city’s growth and forms a central link of an intermodal transportation system at the exit of the bridge-tunnel from Macau. Designed and created by our subsidiary Dragages Hong Kong, a new office tower is to be built in the current taxi staging area, between the Airport Express line and the airport car park. The building’s seven storeys will comply with the airport’s strict height restrictions. It will be the future head office of the Hong Kong Airport Authority, offering future users a collaborative working environment, open and spacious premises and smart equipment to boost efficiency, communication and wellbeing. Its proximity to the busy airport, as well as railways, requires excellent project management in order to avoid any impact on the running of the airport, rail services and the taxi staging area.

Dragages and Hong Kong have a long history

The subsidiary carried out its first local project in the 1950s: the runway of the former Kai Tak airport. Since then, the company has become Hong Kong's leading name in underground works. It is also involved in major structural works and its many exceptional projects are transforming the city. In 2020, it completed Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link, a 5 km twin-tube road tunnel connecting the New Territories in the north of Hong Kong to Lantau Island, where Chek Lap Kok international airport is located. With tunnels bored up to 50 metres below the sea, this project is the biggest design and construction contract ever awarded in Hong Kong. Dragages is recognised as a pioneer in its sector, driving new technologies and construction technologies in its civil engineering, building, electrical and mechanical divisions.
