Event Overview

In 2015, the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation (HKBCF) was granted a piece of land in Ngau Chi Wan, Kowloon to expand their community service for Kowloon and the New Territories. With construction funding from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, HKBCF was able to develop a new one-stop holistic health centre to service lower-income patients and those with financial difficulties and their families by providing education, assessment, screening and patient support for breast cancer and lymphedema. With its construction recently completed, a technical visit to the HKBCF Jockey Club Breast Health Centre has been arranged. Participants are invited to review this 560 square metres, two storey project by Chun Wo Building Constructions and see what technical and construction challenges hold for the health and community sector. In response to the needs of the client and the main contractor’s own aspirations, some specific targets are selected and implemented into the project:

  • Point cloud in surveying
  • Adoption of MatrixDeck
  • Precast concrete façade panels
  • Feature wall from Computer Numerically Controlled Concrete Formwork (In Association with CUHK)
  • Wearable robots to assist construction
  • Adoption of Nanotechnology
  • Design and construction with Building Information Modelling
  • Presenting ideas in virtual reality
  • Indoor Air Quality Certification (Good Class)
