The first Walmart shopping mall in China
Zhuhai Mall is the first of 4 malls Walmart plans to build in China. The 110,587m² project has 4 floors above ground, 2 basement floors and roof top car parking. Gleeds provided project and cost management services for the project, where careful planning and execution was needed in order to meet the tight deadline for opening.
Up against the elements
Construction was not without its challenges, due mainly to poor geological conditions. A number of storms hit during the construction stage, leaving the basement flooded on multiple occasions. The client described the project completing on time and in budget as a miracle, and has since appointed Gleeds to work on another 2 projects in Nanchang and Huizhou.
