Practical Conservation Knowledge in Hong Kong

Since the introduction of Conservation Policy in 2007, there is a handful of completed conservation projects in Hong Kong, they become iconic and popular sites for locals and tourists. Our counterparts start to recognise the opportunities that historic buildings could bring to a development project. While we want to learn from the successful cases and borrow the concepts to other projects, first, we need to understand the rules of the game.

This module intends to give an intensive overview of the current statutory and administrative regulations for historic buildings in Hong Kong and let practitioners from different sectors to have a brief understanding of the resources and opportunities available, in order to generate more creative projects and business opportunities for the industry.

At the end of the day, the trainer will lead a site visit in Blue House and Pak Tai Temple.

Module 2 - 6:30pm to 9:30pm, 24 July

Condition Survey & Repair to Historics Buildings

There are over 1,200 historic buildings in Hong Kong and the Government is reviewing to include post-war buildings into the grading assessment, that means there will be more graded historic buildings in the near future.

Majority of our modern buildings are concrete structures and our professional building surveyors have sufficient knowledge to deal with it. However, when it comes to brick and masonry buildings and timber structures, it is another story.

This module focuses on the Hong Kong experience of heritage buildings for the building professional. It is intended to refresh members knowledge of brick, timber and older reinforced concrete buildings and explain what to look for when conducting condition surveys of heritage buildings and methods of defect repair.
