Opening of Wink Hotel Saigon Centre

July 19, 2021

Kajima Development (KD) and its local partner in Vietnam, Indochina Capital, opened Wink Hotel Saigon Centre in Da Kao, District 1 in Ho chi Minh City on March 24, 2021. The hotel is the first hotel under the “Winks Hotels”, Vietnam’s revolutionary new hospitality brand.
Headquartered in Singapore for the real estate development business in Southeast Asia, KD formed a partnership with Indochina Capital and established Indochina Kajima Development (IKD) in 2016. Since then, IKD has sought a number of real estate development business opportunities in Vietnam. 12-storied Wink Hotel Saigon Centre, with 237 rooms and a total floor area of 9,943m2, is the first real estate development project for IKD and is also the first Wink Hotel that came to open to date.

Wink Hotels perfectly combines traditional Vietnamese elements and colors with comfortable functionality to provide "affordable luxury" to hotel guests, especially to younger generations. In addition, for the first time in the Vietnamese hotel industry, Wink Hotels introduced "STAY24 Program" that guarantees a 24-hour guest stay regardless of check-in time. Guests at the Wink Hotel Saigon Centre are granted free access to Toong brand coworking spaces in the hotel and any other locations in Ho chi Minh City.
Following the opening of Wink Hotel Saigon Centre, IKD aims to further develop the Wink Hotels brand in major cities across Vietnam.

Chung-Lu Construction holds site tours for pupils, students, and teachers
at Taipei Japanese School

May 21, 2021

On December 18th, 2020, a site tour was held at the Taipei Japanese School, where Chung-Lu Construction, our local subsidiary, is in charge of design and construction, in which 105 fourth-grade elementary school students attended.

This tour was planned for the school's pupils, students, and teachers. The tour was held sequentially with the aim of encouraging them to become interested in the construction industry by learning how their schools are being constructed.

In addition to the construction process, progress status, and the completion design, the site staff provided easy-to-understand explanations of the tools and types of vehicles used at the site, as well as clothing ingenuity, using diagrams, paintings, photographs, and other means. After the lecture, students visited the job site.

Many comments were received from the students, including: "I'm looking forward to seeing stairs in the new library that will make it wider than it is now," and "It was interesting that tools used in construction were compared to animals."

In addition, Chung-Lu Construction donated them books on construction titled "Gradually completed" supervised by Kajima and published by Froebel-Kan Co.,Ltd , which has become popular books at their library as well.

This plan is a rebuilding due to the aging of the school building. The structure is RC/S/SRC-built, the school is 3 stories 1 basement, 1PH (Pent House), and the gymnasium is 4 stories. The total floor area is 17,130m2.

The schematic design was provided by Yasui Architects & Engineers, Inc., the construction documents were developed by the Architectural Design Division of Kajima Corporation and the construction work was assigned to Chung-Lu Construction.

In June 2021, they will start classes at new schools and new gymnasiums, and then the demolition work of existing schools and improvement of the athletic field will be started.
The project is scheduled for completion in December 2021.
