Located amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Hanoi stands one of Vietnam’s most technologically advanced buildings: The VPBank Tower. Rising 32 levels above the street, the building hosts VPBank, one of Vietnam’s top five largest banks. This building manages the internet, intranet, communication, and account transactions conducted by VPBank branches. Understandably, the bank requires a very technologically advanced ELV system to support its branches across the country.
An ELV system is traditionally a basic system comprised of communication tools like telephone and internet networks, but the system that the VPBank Tower required was unique. The system required state-of-the-art communication technologies. VPBank the developer of this project, needed to find an M&E contractor who could meet the difficult requirements of this project.

In August of 2014, VPBank took the project to bid and began searching for a reliable M&E contractor who could supply a system that could suit the special technical requirements of the project. This was an especially challenging system to design because each M&E system would need to support the others. The powerful air conditioning system would make sure the ELV system didn’t overheat, the electrical system would power the security system to ensure that the technology was safe, and the security system would protect the whole M&E systems. This project was truly complex and required a contractor who could stay aware of VPBank Tower needs.
While many contractors submitted designs, it was Hawee’s state-of-the-art design as displayed using 3D-BIM technology and as led by our chief engineer that won us the contract.

We stayed flexible to meet all project requirements. We had proven, yet again, that we are truly a partner for M&E systems.
Hawee began developing the project immediately, bringing in expert technical teams to focus on the electrical system, BMS, and ELV system.
In all, 15 engineers, and over 100 technical workers produced and installed the important M&E system at VPBank Tower. To ensure quality and fit, quality and functionality tests were conducted at every stage of production and installation.
Hawee is scheduled to finish the project in April, 2016. The work will meet all technical requirements, and the developer is thus far very happy with the project’s development. VPBank is scheduled to occupy the building within a few months after completion.
