Programme Highlight

Demographic changes contribute to the soaring demand of infrastructure and real estates, which further deteriorates the lands shortage problems. In spite of the controversies of prodigal construction, reclamation is undeniably a resolution to the problem. Among the new towns developed, Tseung Kwan O is recognized as one of the most successful youngly populated areas with over 60+ years reclamation history, from shipbreaking harbor to steel fabrication to today’s TKO.  On the other hand, new town planning, including Area 137 and 132, are under progress to address the societal phenomenon. In accompany with emerging construction techniques, reclamation methods are ever-improving by virtue of the tight cooperation between engineers and frontliners. In this talk, Mr. CHENG will demonstrate the reclamation works in perspective of a frontline workmanship practice, which is expected to be inspirational to our young engineers.
