Construction on the Atkins-designed skyscraper Vincom Landmark 81 in Ho Chi Minh City has begun

The British architecture firm has worked closely with Arup for the structural design of the 460m skyscraper that is set to be Vietnam’s tallest building once completed. With its frontage facing the Saigon river, the 81-storey development incorporates a contemporary design that reflects the diversity of the quickly-growing city. The mixed-use structure will include a hotel, residential apartments and retail spaces. Expected to be completed in 2017, landscape design will also be completed by Atkins.

Atkins, along with Arup,  has designed a landmark tower for the region, creating a piece of architecture that will be at the heart of modern Vietnam. British Prime Minister David Cameron said about the collaboration of the two companies, “Atkins and Arup are leading the way in unlocking the potential for British businesses in Vietnam. It's a testament to their expertise that Ho Chi Minh City's skyline will be shaped by British design, as they work on Vietnam's tallest skyscraper.”
