Dalian Wanda appointed our Australian project management business Turner & Townsend Thinc to give them confidence and control over their first overseas project. Our role is managing all aspects of the project, from design to delivery in March 2019.

Preparation of the site involved the clearing of 100 separate residencies and the excavation of 100,000m3 of sand. Piling works have also taken place, which we supported with early construction packages as design evolved alongside the main contractor procurement process. At its peak this project will involve over 1,000 construction personnel on site and a monthly spend of AUD30m.

Making the difference

Having Turner & Townsend Thinc work jointly with our team to define and manage the entire project process not only gives us the confidence required but provides us with insight into the integration of project procurement on world projects.” Weimin XU Managing Director, Wanda Ridong (Gold Coast) Development Pty Ltd
