Waterpoint Township, Vietnam

  • 359-hectare, mixed use township development for 25 000 residents
  • Aurecon's role: ground improvement & infrastructure design
  • Developer: Nam Long Investment Corporation

Located 30 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City, the township is a 359 hectare, mixed use township development to be developed over the next 20 to 30 years.

It will house 25 000 residents in a mix of villas, town houses and apartments. The township will be supported by education facilities, including a university, a range of retail and commercial facilities and a possible marina.

The site is located in the bend of a river and water is a key design feature of the development. A central canal around the nine hole golf course and throughout the residential parcels has been engineered so the river’s tidal range will flush the canal and maintain the water’s quality.

With poor ground conditions, significant earthworks filling is required to raise the ground above river flood levels. Aurecon has engineered soil improvement strategies for the site as well as designed infrastructure to accommodate predicted short and long term settlements.
