It has been awarded two contracts for major new projects in the Chinese cities of Huhhot and Shouguang which together come to about $11.3 million
Ken Yi Luo, the chairman and CEO, said, ‘The Shouguang Cultural Center will be the focal point for that city, and the Sheraton Hotel – Huhhot will be a landmark building.’
This second project complements another in which CAE was involved, the newly finished Huhhot Baita Airport Terminal extension, where CAE designed fabricated and installed the roofing and curtain wall systems.
Huhhot is the capital of the Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and is also the rail linking point from which trains eventually go across Russia ending up in Dusseldorf.
The Sheraton project is worth about $7.6 million and major constuction should be finished towards the end of next year with the hotel opening at the end of 2009. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the Inner Mongolia Baita Airport and will include 350 rooms with a total construction area of approximately 790,000 square feet. Note that in both cases they are competing with the Five Pagoda temple which is a tough act to follow.
In Shouguang, one of the major cities of Shandong province, the company will build the external façade for the city’s new cultural center.
