Newtecons wins bid to build Fulbright University Vietnam’s flagship campus

July 13, 2021

With high credibility and extensive experience through many construction projects across the country, especially facilities for educational purposes, Newtecons is trusted to be the General Contractor of Design & Construction of Fulbright University Vietnam’s D9 campus.

Fulbright University Vietnam’s flagship campus is built on a 15-ha parcel in the Saigon High-Tech Park in District 9, Ho Chi Minh City. Upon completion, the project will become a sophisticated space for learning, teaching, training, and researching for thousands of students in Vietnam and abroad.

Currently, Newtecons is doing its best to prepare for the project in all aspects, including a professional Steering Committee with diverse experience in construction projects of international standards and cutting-edge equipment and machinery before entering the construction phase.

In the first phase, the Steering Committee is going to build a dormitory, a cluster of lecture halls, and a central lawn – a green space to accommodate students’ outdoor learning and leisure activities.

At the main gate of Fulbright University Vietnam’s flagship campus, adjacent to the central lawn will be a large hall, next to the student center and library. From this building, there will be walkways leading to satellite buildings and functional facilities such as a gallery, an auditorium, and a gymnasium. The two main paths in the campus intersect at the dormitory and the student cafeteria, which will be located on the ground floor. The remaining component buildings will be constructed in the next phases of the university’s development.

Fulbright University Vietnam’s campus will be built in adherence to the LEED standards for sustainable practices design and development of the U.S Green Building Council, along with the EDGE sustainability certification.

Ms. Dam Bich Thuy – President of Fulbright University Vietnam remarked: “We are delighted to witness the construction of our flagship campus officially begin. This is the culmination of planning, fundraising, and negotiation efforts over the last few years. Fulbright University has always prioritized experiential learning opportunities dedicated to building students’ competencies. The flagship campus will be a spacious, versatile, and high-tech facility that serves our education mission.”
