Important component of the HZMB - world’s longest sea crossing
The new Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) is a 55km link which consists of a series of bridges and tunnels that will connect Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai.
Vehicles travelling to and from Hong Kong on the new bridge leave and enter Hong Kong on a 130ha artificial island.
Passengers will pass through customs and immigration in the Passenger Clearance Building, a 30m high building with a total floor area of over 90,000m2, which is a new and distinctive entry point into Hong Kong.
Leighton Asia, with its joint venture partner, is responsible for the construction of the Passenger Clearance Building, drop off deck/area footbridges, and district cooling system for the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities.
The scope includes bored pile foundations, reinforced concrete structures, profiled steel roof, curtain walling and glazing, architectural finishes and mechanical and electrical work.
This award-winning project successfully mitigated safety risks by designing better and safer construction methods through the application of off-site construction.
