Newtecons starts construction on new urban complex in Ca Mau, Vietnam

Vietnamese contractor Newtecons has commenced construction on a new urban complex in Ca Mau city, located in the province of Ca Mau, Vietnam. The groundbreaking ceremony of the project was held on 10 December 2023.

Covering a total area of 23 ha, this large-scale development is a strategic project under a cooperation agreement between the People’s Committee of Ca Mau province and T&T Group. Newtecons has been commissioned as the general contractor for the project.

When completed, the new complex will feature 7.5 ha of low-rise buildings for residential, commercial and service needs; 2.5 ha of high-rise mixed-use housing (five towers of 10 floors and two towers of 15 floors); 4 ha for educational, medical and service needs; and 9 ha for technical and transportation infrastructure.

The Ring City, encircled by a river, is the centrepiece of the project. According to Newtecons, the surrounding river and the canal system serve as a design inspiration and facilitate the connection of traffic and material transportation. However, these features also present challenges for the construction team due to a number of factors, including surface poor foundation, flooding, inadequate infrastructure, and more. Such issues could impede development and thus necessitate additional fixes and contingency plans to ensure the success of the project.
