Dragages Hong Kong, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction has won a € 490 million contract to design and build a harbour terminal and supporting facilities for cruise ships south of the former runway of the Kai Tak airport, Hong kong.

The complex will be capable of simultaneously berthing two 8000 passenger mega cruise liners, the first berth of which is scheduled to be operational by mid 2013.

Designed by architects Foster + Partners and Wong Tung & Partners, the building will feature a three-storey open plan landscaped structure, the absence of columns lending itself to a modular use of the space.

The project has been designed to comply with the demands of the Hong Kong Building Environmental Assessment Method (BEAM) certification relating to sustainable construction that combines energy saving measures with a focus on the building's long-term performance.

Once completed, the terminal will be one of the world's most modern cruise ship berthing facilities, and will strengthen Hong Kong's standing as a principal cruise hub.
