Technical video of the“Design and Construction of Redevelopment of Kwai Chung Hospital (Phase 1)”
Undertook by Chun Wo Construction, the project “Design and Construction of Redevelopment of Kwai Chung Hospital (Phase 1)” was successfully completed. The construction site is located in between Princess Margaret Hospital and Kwai Chung Hospital, Chun Wo is responsible for designing and building a 5-storey psychiatric rehabilitation center, with a green resting area and a car park.
One of the most difficult part of this project is that the construction site is surrounded by the existing higher buildings. Construction vehicles were required to share a single-lane road for two-way traffic with ambulance. Therefore, Chun Wo made extra efforts in logistics arrangement during the project, aiming to minimize the interference of construction to the hospitals.
In addition, with an aim to protect the environment and to minimize the impact on the surrounding areas caused by the dismantling of the old building, the design team proposed keeping the original double deck car park as a part of the new building. As a result, the noise produced by chiseling and 780 tons of construction waste were reduced, while the traffic burden was also reduced by almost 6 times.
