13 October 2015 – Global engineering consultancy Aurecon has opened its first office in Macau SAR, the latest addition to its growing network of international operations.
As with other Aurecon offices, the new Macau location will provide clients with a combination of in-depth expertise, rapid service and local knowledge.
Aurecon (and its predecessor companies) already has an established reputation in Macau, having worked for prestigious clients in this Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, including Galaxy, Melcro Crown, and Venetian Macau. The company has recently been closely involved in the development of the half-sized replica of the Eiffel Tower at the Parisian Macao resorts, which is currently under construction.
“Opening an office in Macau demonstrates Aurecon’s commitment to providing service excellence to our clients. Even though levels of construction activity are down slightly from the recent boom, the outlook is still good. Investors are taking a long-term approach and there is a strong pipeline of projects in the Built Environment and Infrastructure sectors,” said Ben Coxon, Region Manager for North Asia at Aurecon.
Macau is one of the world’s richest cities and also its most densely populated. Its economy is heavily dependent on tourism, entertainment and hospitality, and continual development of its infrastructure and skyline is central to the local government’s plans for the future. Aurecon’s new office aims to not only contribute to the commercial success of the company’s clients in the region, but also to Macau itself.
Aurecon’s office in Macau is located in China Civil Plaza and will initially serve clients in the hotel, resorts, entertainment, and property development segments. However, the office will also concurrently seek out opportunities in the transport and infrastructure sectors.
