CSCC a leader in construction field within a decade

The name Cana Sino has a foreign ring to it but in fact, this large-scale construction company has its origins in Cambodia. Having completed many milestone projects in the Kingdom, Cano Sino Construction Corporation (CSCC) has now set its sights on further developing the nation.

Deputy general director of CSCC Lai Long Zhao said that Cana Sino, which was established in 2008 in Phnom Penh, is a joint venture between Sino-Pacific Construction Corporation (SPCC) and the Overseas Cambodian Investment Corporation (OCIC).

“Once a few groups of major investors from Cambodia, China, and Taiwan came together with an idea to build infrastructure, high-rise buildings and skybridges (flyovers) developed,” he said.

Alongside the hundreds of workers onsite, CSCC has 45 expats and over 120 local staffs skilled in different areas of construction projects.

Consultants, designers, and engineers are available for hire at the company, and are consulted for infrastructure projects such as underground tunnels and flyovers.

CSCC’s beginning ventures were New Monivong Bridge and Monivong Flyover Bridge, which were the first of their kind in Cambodia.

“With this success, CSCC grew in reputation in Cambodia. From then on, our company always had the opportunity to handle big construction projects in the Kingdom,” Lai said.

He added: “One of our key projects is the Stung Meanchey Interchange. It’s an amazing feat that helps to ease traffic congestion.”

Today, there are many skybridges in Phnom Penh. These include Preah Monivong, January 5 Skybridge, and the 7 January Skybridge, which were all built by Cana Sino.

Apart from flyovers, high-rise buildings such as Olympia City have also been built by CSCC. Buildings C3 and C4 of the complex have two underground floors and 25 floors up, totaling 125,000 square metres.

Other condominium developments under CSCC include Casa Meridian on Diamond Island, and the ongoing Embassy Central on Street 352 and Skytree Condominium on Street 105.

All projects undertaken by CSCC for both the public and private sector are of quality standards.

Over the decade, CSCC has been successful with construction projects in the city and provides training for workers under industry professionals.

“Today, the company has recruited Cambodians who are working as managers, field managers, and on the management team,” commented Lai.

Just as CSCC chairman pointed out: “With awards and medal prizes from Prime Minister Hun Sen, the CSCC is looking forward to develop more in the construction arena. We are now looking to embark on larger infrastructure projects such as ports and airports beyond the shores of Cambodia as well. We will create our own way, and stand out from other construction companies.”
