2 Tailwinds for business objectives : Hyundai E&C wins new orders in succession
Hyundai E&C is accelerating the pace to achieve its business goals by receiving new orders in succession in the domestic construction market.
Hyundai E&C has won a 302.4-billion-won project to redevelop Woori Apartment in Daegu Metropolitan City on January 28, solidifying Hyundai E&C's no.1 position for three consecutive years, which is the first of its kind in the domestic redevelopment market.
The Woori Apartment redevelopment project is designed to build 12 buildings of 35 floors above ground and three basement levels (1,107 units) and community facilities in Nam-gu, Dae-gu Metropolitan City. Hyundai E&C will name the new apartment complex Hillstate Regia Fore coined from two Latin words “régĭa” (a palace) and “foréstis” (a forest). Hyundai E&C will join hands with CRTKL, a global architecture, planning and design firm, to construct the apartment buildings embodying a “giant tree” through using curtain walls and aluminum panels, and provide a rooftop community facility and variously themed landscape spaces.
In addition, we have received an order to build the Hana Dream Town Group Headquarters and a deal to construct the Pacific Sunny Data Center in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. The Hana Dream Town Group Headquarters project valued at 453.0 billion won is aimed at building a head office of 15 floors above ground and seven basement levels, and the project is slated to be finished in January 2026. The smart office building, to be home to Hana Financial Group, KEB Hana Bank, KEB Hana Card, and Hana Financial Investment, will build on the combination of cutting-edge technologies.
Meanwhile, the Pacific Sunny Data Center project is designed to construct a mega-scale data center of four floors above ground and four basement levels, which will be one of the biggest data centers in Korea. The construction worth about 535.4 billion won will commence in February 2022 and last for 28 months.
