Mahanakhon Sunset Cocktail: A Celebration of French Excellence in Construction

On Thursday 21st February, the French companies Archetype Group, Dextra and Saint-Gobain held a Sunset Cocktail on the 78th floor of the King Power MahaNakhon tower in order to celebrate the French excellence in construction in Thailand and in Asia, in the presence of all the representatives of the French authorities in Thailand, including Mr. Jacques Lapouge – Ambassador of France. This event is an expression of French companies playing a major role in worldwide landmark projects, including super high-rise towers.

In addition to real-estate developers from Thailand, this exclusive event gathered regional players developing similar high-rise buildings projects in their countries. Renowned developers from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos , Myanmar and Vietnam all visited Bangkok on this special occasion.

Archetype Group, in particular, celebrated our 6 years of continuous involvement in this iconic MahaNakhon tower project. From 2012 to 2018, Archetype was commissioned by the project developers (PACE Development and then King Power) to deliver various consultancy services: value engineering, project management and construction management. This celebratory event marked a proudly completed mission and a reminiscence of achievements that have made MahaNakhon tower into the iconic symbol it is today.

Amongst a few others French companies involved in the MahaNakhon tower, Archetype Group, Dextra and Saint-Gobain were thrilled to celebrate this expression of French entrepreneurship and success in Asia.
