Unicons’ mark at Landmark 81 project

HCMC – Being a key member of Coteccons Group, Unicons Investment Construction Company Limited (Unicons) has collaborated with the group on the Landmark 81 project in HCMC.

Winning a contract via many foreign tenders at Landmark 81 in 2015 became great pride for Vietnam’s construction industry in general and Coteccons Group in particular, as previously, high-rise buildings higher than 60 floors had all been constructed by foreign contractors.

In the Landmark 81 project, Unicons is in charge of the steel structures, regarded as the backbone of high-rise buildings, along with the crown spire, a steel steeple nearly 62 meters long which raises the project’s height to 461.2 meters. This scope of work is considered a real challenge due to its large scale and demanding level of difficulty.

Dealing with a 160-ton weight at a height of over 400 meters, the installation of the crown spire entails demanding requirements of quality, technology and safety. All the steel pipes were imported from Spain while the bolts were from South Korea. Unicons – Coteccons had to make orders over six months ago to ensure the implementation could progress well. Every single unit of material was carefully measured and strictly monitored as pledged with the project investor.

After 15 days of tireless work, Unicons – Coteccons successfully installed the crown spire on 9 April 2018, 14 days ahead of the plan, giving the tower a height of 461.2 meters to achieve the title of “the tallest building in Southeast Asia”.

“On giant’s shoulders”

Wholly under Coteccons, Unicons inherits strengths of the group, from management system to finance and personnel. Unicons is capable of implementing many large-scale projects at the same time across Vietnam.
After 12 years of development, Unicons has had involvement in hundreds of projects across the country in a wide range of fields such as industrial projects, resident and commercial high-rises, hotels, resorts and education projects. In addition, the firm has become a reliable partner to many leading international corporations like Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, GE, Masan, Regina and Swarovski.

Unicons’ corporate culture is reflected in six core values, namely Safety (for the sake of health, safety and green environment); Team spirit (encouragement of unity, openness and mutual trust); Integrity (consistency, honesty and transparency); Professionalism (combination of know-how and experience to create strength); Passion (devotion in work and with customers), and Innovation (continuous innovation and creation in work). 

Good financial capability is another competitive advantage of Unicons compared to other construction contractors. Like Coteccons, Unicons does not use loans. With VND45 billion in revenue after the first year of operation, Unicons has seen its revenue increase over 200 times after 12 years and aims to generate more than VND9 trillion this year.

Capabilities of domestic contractors are now comparable with those of foreign ones, even higher in certain features. A few obvious advantages of domestic contractors are their understanding of the business environment and policies in the fields, experience in workforce selection as well as material suppliers at competitive prices. Unicons is completely capable of handling difficult projects and satisfying requirements just as well as other foreign contractors.

The reputation of Unicons has been associated with large-scale industrial segment of foreign customers. Currently, seven out of eight industrial projects implemented by Unicons belong to foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises.

Unicons was previously known for constructing industrial workshops for companies such as GE Energy, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Sanofi. In addition to exploiting the industrial segment, Unicons is enhancing its involvement in high-rise building segment with big projects such as Ha Do Centrosa Garden, Cityland Park Hills, D’Capitale, etc.
