Summary of Project:  Foundation and concrete structure of the 4-story recreation centre, including two pools, a small gym, and a large gym

"Designing / Working with Concrete material is many architects dream, however, the quality of the outcome can be unpredictable. It is not just what the architects have specified, but one of the important factors is the workmanship of the concrete trade. Horizon Concrete Construction Ltd has held up a high standard for their work. Contractors on the jobsite clearly take pride in their work. Their attention to detail and the effort to understand the vision of architects / designers are truly appreciated. It is always a blessing and fortunate for an architect to be able to work with such a contractor."
James Lai, Project Architect, Associate Vice President, CannonDesign
