The new ITC building will connect adjacent commercial buildings and heritage sites, and will comprise of two grade-A office skyscrapers of 220m and 370m, a premium mall and a luxury 6-star hotel. There are nine connecting bridges to surrounding buildings and links to three metro lines reaching in every direction of the city. The building is designed at LEED Gold Standard.

ITC has four relatively independent lots which are in different stages of construction. Integration of all the contractors is key to the successful delivery of the project. Due to the long construction period, fluctuations in the cost of materials and changes in regulations, pose further challenges for cost control.

As the Quantity Surveyor, Arcadis is deeply involved in the cost management. By utilizing the huge cost database and relevant experience of benchmarking projects in mainland China, we provided numerous estimates to advise the client on design options and construction methods.

During tendering stage, Arcadis worked on bidding documents from the point of view of client. Clear boundaries were set at the very beginning to avoid discrepancies and ambiguity in the future. Finally, due to frequent business negotiations with contractors, we effectively managed all change orders and claims.

By making use of Arcadis’ cost management expertise, we built a complete process of construction cost control system for this mega project from the cost estimate to tendering analysis, construction contract management and final account settlement. The outstanding performance and diligence of Arcadis team was highly commended by the client.

The project is expected to be completed in 2023, and will improve the ecosystem for Xujiahui commercial core, providing improved connections to the city, environmentally-friendly buildings, job opportunities and regeneration for residents.
