International Golf & Resort Management Ltd (IGRM) has completed the successful handover of the Laguna Lang Co golf course part of the Laguna Hue Project in Vietnam, to the Banyan Tree group for whom it has acted as the Golf Project and Construction Manager.
IGRM has overseen the development of the Sir Nick Faldo-designed Laguna Lang Co championship golf course, practice facilities, all golf-related infrastructure and advised on the course maintenance facilities, maintenance equipment and grass procurement. Since August 2010, it has guided the project through the detailed design and tendering the stages of golf course, engineering and landscape design as well as budgeting and all the on-site activities including clearance, bulk earthworks, shaping, irrigation, drainage installation and grassing.
Located in a 280-acre beachfront site within an hour’s drive of Da Nang and Hue international airports, Laguna Hue is set to become one of the premier integrated resorts and second-home destinations in Vietnam. In addition to the golf course, Laguna Hue will eventually boast seven world-class hotels, a luxury spa, resort residences and a town centre with substantial retail and recreational facilities.
“The Laguna Lang Co course at Laguna Hue has been an extremely challenging, yet rewarding project for the entire IGRM team led on site by David Mathews. To build a golf course within 18 months is a rare achievement in South East Asia and we are incredibly proud to leave the project in such an advanced state that the client is happy to now undertake all the finishing responsibilities,” commented Steve Clement, IGRM’s Director of Golf Project Management Services.
“We depart safe in the knowledge that the remaining golf course works are now in the capable hands of the main contractor TEHC and will be completed to the same exacting standards that IGRM has established. “The experience gained working on this multi-million dollar project will prove invaluable to our clients and the future projects that IGRM is involved in.”
With the successful completion of Laguna Hue, IGRM will now focus attention on its various other projects located throughout the world – a diverse and expanding portfolio that ranges from the soon-to-be-opened Harrow Park Golf Club in Abuja, Nigeria and the beautifully-situated Villafranca Golf Resort in northern Tuscany, to IGRM’s pioneering Rio de Janeiro International Resort in Brazil which is soon expected to commence construction mobilization as it progresses through the final stages of planning.
