Construction of the new Landmark 81 development in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, is expected to start soon. Upon completion, the 461.2-m-high building is set to be the tallest skyscraper in Vietnam and the sixth tallest in Asia. It will be the focal point of the Vinhomes Central Park development, a multi-purpose urban development commissioned by local company Vincom Group, which will include residential, retail and leisure spaces.
The project is currently at the detailed design stage and Aurecon is developing its plan for the building in close co-operation with the developer, Vincom Group, as well as architect, Atkins; structural engineer, Arup; contractor, Mace; and other key partners.
Included in Aurecon’s remit are all services in the building, including HVAC, electrical, fire protection, plumbing, lightning protection and the elevator system. With tight time pressures on the project, Aurecon was given just three months to develop detailed designs for the building services. The company developed its designs in the Revit platform, which not only allowed it to create the most efficient programmes for the project but also to map their performance using 4D BIM, charting their progression over the building’s lifetime.
The Landmark 81 is scheduled to be completed in 2017. It will include a five-star hotel, serviced apartments, residential apartments and retail space over a total floor area of 241,000 sq m.
