OCTA Tower is a 28-storey Grade A commercial building with an approximate GFA of 795,000 sq. ft. and boasts a full view of Victoria Harbour.

This project is an Asset Enhancement Initiative (AEI) to further upgrade the market value of the building. The works involved upgrading the building envelope, main entrance lobby and main lift lobby. Tysan was responsible for the design and build of the main entrance metal canopy, stone cladding system, 12m high main entrance glass wall system, 11m high main lobby feature stone, 13.5m high sidewall aluminum cladding and curtain wall system for the main roof.

The building was fully occupied while the AEI works were in progress. The construction methodology and planning were specifically designed to accommodate the high amount of foot traffic in the main lobby and lift lobby. Therefore, it was crucial that an accurate and reliable phasing layout plan was well prepared and agreed with the Management Office in advance to ensure sufficient space for public use during the construction period.

The project is expected to be completed by Q4 2020.
