At the Ceremony, Mr. Pham Hong Ha asserted that The Landmark 81 marked the maturity of Viet Nam Construction Companies in controlling the most modern technology and construction management process, confirming their competence to build supper-high building. This was a symbolic impression of the development of Coteccons Group, Vingroup and Viet Nam Construction Industry. That was the reason why the Ministry of Construction chose The Landmark 81 to honor in the 60 year Anniversary of Viet Nam Construction Industry.
Skyscrapers are not only the symbols of a city or a country but also the evidence of that city’s or country’s potential and rapid economic development. After finishing, The Landmark 81 will be the highest building and the symbol of Viet Nam, ranking Top 10 highest building in the world.
The dream of a skyscraper with Vietnamese impression was no longer a distant one. It came true when Coteccons General Contractor – representative of Viet Nam, surpassing many other large international contractors, won the super-high building contract The Landmark 81.
Mr. Nguyen Ba Duong shared that Landmark 81 was topped out 45 days before schedule and had more than 9 million safe hours. General Director Mace had said in the their meeting last month that The Landmark 81 was voted the highest quality and safest project of all the projects that he managed in all over the world. With the success of The Landmark 81, Coteccons – the only representative of Viet Nam Contractors entered Top 50 World’s Biggest Contractors for the first time.
At this megaproject, F.D.C was trusted by General Contractor Coteccons and was given a chance to participate in carry out the main foundation and structure of the tower, particularly, 24 elevator cores – one of the most difficult items, which is considered as the “soul” of every Building. By overcoming the challenges of laying the biggest foundation in Viet Nam and the complicated techniques of the elevator cores, F.D.C team was successful to contribute to constructing the hardest part of “the biggest project in Viet Nam”.
F.D.C has had a lot of chances and challenges to carry out the “cutting edge” constructions in Viet Nam through the Landmark project. In the last 2 years, F.D.C has developed rapidly and been more and more sustainable, leaving good impressions on the market, particularly The Landmark 81.
