When it comes to top quality civil construction, retail fit-out, interior design and renovation projects of all scales only one choice is clear.

Lai Si Construction was founded in 1980 in Macau, witnessing the city’s rapid economic growth and prosperity in construction industry. “Over the years, Lai Si has always emphasized on quality with continuous effort in enhancement, receiving prestigious recognition from clients and in the sector,” says Harry Lai, CEO.

Market Changes

The opening of Macau’s gaming market in 2002 attracted the influx of foreign capital. “Together with the preferential policy granted by the central government, Macau has been transforming for building up a world center of tourism and leisure. Lai Si has taken this golden opportunity in business expansion which includes interior fit-in projects for hotels, casinos, shopping malls and branded retail shops,” Lai says.

In addition, through proactive negotiating with foreign enterprises, Lai Si succeeded in gaining a construction contract from the Venetian Macau in 2007 and became one of the main contractors. This break-through terminated the market monopolization of overseas contractors in large-scale gaming projects and was a great encouragement for the local enterprises.

In order to facilitate the expansion of Lai Si, dated back to 2015 a team was established for the preparation of listing. Lai Si Enterprise Holding Limited was successfully listed in February 2017 (HKG:2266) and is the first construction firm in Macau to be listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited. Meanwhile, Lai Si established its Hong Kong and Singapore branches in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Headquartered in Macau, Lai Si has provided a full array of services in China, Hong Kong and Singapore. The entry into the Greater China market marked its determination in business expansion as the market in Macau and Hong Kong is relatively much smaller.

Lai Si has long participated in projects in China (Guangdong) for more than 10 years. Though the market in China is extremely competitive, the accumulated experiences, network of partners, expertise in China market served as the advantages of Lai Si. Recently one of Lai Si’s signature projects is “City One” in Guangdong, composing of hotel, exhibition venues, luxury residences and shopping arcade, which has become a new landmark on the city.
