Bouygues wins Myanmar tower work

Bouygues has won a major role on a project to build six towers in Rangoon.

Developer Thanlyin Estate Development selected a consortium of SPA Project Management and Bouygues subsidiary Dragages Singapore for the $125M (£86M) scheme.

The team will design and build a new phase of the Star City housing scheme in the Myanmar city, consisting of four 82m-tall towers and two 91m-high buildings.

The contract also includes construction of a two-storey car park, a local community building, a swimming-pool, a leisure activity area and green spaces.

Bouygues Bâtiment International executive vice president for Southern Asia Ludwig Reichhold said: “Following on from an initial contract awarded in 2013, this latest success will reinforce our long-term commitment to Myanmar, which includes an initiative to provide training for local employees.”

Works will start immediately and involve more than 2,000 people at peak. Completion is scheduled for early 2018.
