Gammon celebrates the 7th year of the ‘Lap Dog Challenge’
Gammon, our 50:50 joint venture in Hong Kong, returned to the tracks for their annual Lap Dog Challenge.
Celebrating its seventh year, the Lap Dog Challenge saw teams of five complete as many laps of a 400-metre running track as they could in five hours.
65 runners took on the challenge with two teams from Gammon completing a total of 873 laps, raising over HK$1.5 million (c. £159,150). After the event, the teams were presented with a trophy for raising the most funds and making a significant contribution to the HK$2.8 million (c. £297,080) raised.
Funds raised from the event were divided and given to two charity organisations with 90% going to the Lighthouse Club Hong Kong Benevolent Fund and 10% to the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation.
Working closely with our supply chain partners and customer, our project team developed a cost-effective solution to reuse materials on-site.
Balfour Beatty has set out a roadmap to delivering a zero carbon construction site which we are trialling on a live site - the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh - Biomes Initiative.
