U.S. and China Construction Connection

03/25/21 –Constructech: U.S. and China Construction Connection
While the governments of China and the US go back and forth on tariffs and travel, rights and restrictions, direct engagement at a local level are proceeding. Construction is one of the areas where US experience and ability are welcomed in China as the recent dealings of San Diego-based construction and project management firm Gafcon show.

After successfully planning and designing the first two phases of China’s Zizhu Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone, Gafcon, winner of Gold and Silver Constructech Vision Awards, is now leading the planning and designing of the third phase of the 3,200-acre, mixed-use waterfront project. The firm will oversee the next phase centered on Orchid Lake Hotel, a 5-star business-class resort and conference center along the Huangpu River about 18 miles south of Shanghai.

Zizhu is an important technology, science, research, and business hub in the Shanghai area and the Orchid Lake Hotel will feature conference, reception, and workspace along with an executive lounge, 360 guest rooms, a spa, and gymnasium. The hotel will incorporate the surrounding natural landscape of both the river and the newly built Orchid Lake, as well as botanical and sculpture gardens. It will be China’s first ever “sail up” hotel with a yacht club providing access from the river. Read More>
