Benoy has secured three major contracts in China with a combined worth of around £4M.
The firm has worked in China since 2001 and has completed 200 projects in the retail, hospitality, transport, residential and commercial sectors in 28 cities there.
Benoy was named Company Of The Year In China at 2009’s British Business Awards.
The first of three new deals is with Maxon Group to design the Tongzhou Centre in Beijing, a mixed-use development in the city’s main business district. This project includes two high-rise office blocks, two accommodation towers and a luxury hotel.
In the second contract, Benoy has been commissioned by CapitaLand to design Raffles City in Shenzhen’s Nanshan district, the first Raffles City in southern China. This involves an office tower, shopping centre, hotel and a residential development.
Benoy’s third contract is with APP to design a 320-metre office tower, five-star hotel, leisure and entertainment pavilion and five floors of shopping which will be linked to Shanghai’s Metro system, introducing a new ‘indoor-outdoor’ retail concept for China.
Chairman of Benoy Graham Cartledge said: “We are honoured to announce three milestone contracts for Benoy in China. It is a privilege to be able to contribute to the evolution of the contemporary Chinese city and use our global expertise to design and deliver commercially-successful developments for our visionary clients.”
Business secretary Vince Cable said: “Benoy’s expanding presence in China is testament to the strong economic relationship between China and the UK, and to the benefits that trade and overseas investment can bring to UK companies.
“I am pleased to see more and more companies capitalising on the opportunities offered by China’s development. I hope that this week’s visit will serve to open doors for more UK firms, and I wish Benoy every success in their future business.”
