Mott MacDonald has been appointed by the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region on Hung Shui Kiu New Development Area (HSK NDA) Stage 1. HSK NDA has been identified as a suitable area to meet medium to long-term land demand in the Hong Kong 2030: Planning Vision and Strategy for implementation of new development areas.
The project will be implemented under a fast-track programme, involving various complex tasks for providing infrastructure and the forming of five development sites. These sites will potentially be used for the development of the first batch of multi-storey buildings, other land efficient means or the construction of village resite houses.
Mott MacDonald will provide detailed design and construction supervision of the infrastructure works for the five development sites. This includes site formation and the laying of water and drainage pipes, sewage mains and utilities, as well as roadworks and junction improvements.
Sai Ching, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “We are currently in the review phase of the project, where we are focusing on updating the documents from a previous planning and engineering study. Once this is complete, we will move into the detailed design phase, which includes cost estimation and tender document preparation, before the tender for the construction of the development sites begins.”
Mott MacDonald’s commission is expected to be complete by the end of 2025.
