Virtual Site Visit – Live streaming using ZOOM
Virtual Site Visit Arrangement
In view of the uncertainties brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in Hong Kong, we had no choice but to postpone a number of site visits which were scheduled earlier in the year. To maintain our continuous quality learning opportunities to our members and our main theme of ‘Nurturing the Young’ while ensuring safety and wellness of all, we would like to launch an innovative initiative “virtual site visit” for the upcoming site visits.
Through video streaming with LIVE commentary, virtual site visit provides the participants with the ability to view the venue on their computer or mobile device at a safe place. Instead of simply looking at photos, the participants will be given a full walk-through tour. It also allows interactive communication between participants and the site host with a live Q&A session. Your usual support and enrolment is highly encouraged.
To enhance connectivity between Kai Tai Development and the Choi Hung area, the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) is constructing a new pedestrian subway SW4. The main tunnelling works has utilized, for the first time in Hong Kong, the Rectangular Tunnel Boring Machine (RTBM) technology. This innovation has a multitude of merits, including enhancement of works safety, effective management and reduction of construction risks, and raising construction quality. Furthermore, it aligns well with Development Bureau’s Construction 2.0 Initiatives.
The technical visit will begin with a brief presentation about the project and the RTBM technology, to be conducted by the site representatives of the East Development Office (EDO) of CEDD using Zoom. Virtual site walk will then be carried out to view the RTBM works. The virtual site visit will be concluded by a Q&A Section jointly hold by EDO’s site representatives and HKIE Civil Division site visit reporters.
