Mott MacDonald has been appointed building services sub-consultant by the Social Welfare Department for a new integrated rehabilitation services complex (IRSC) in East Kowloon, Hong Kong. The new facility will provide support for disabled people and their families in the local area.
As part of an initiative to enhance the quality of rehabilitation services in the country, the Government of Hong Kong has pledged to identify suitable sites for day training and residential care services. Located on the site of the former Kai Nang Sheltered Workshop and Hostel in Kwun Tong, the IRSC will comprise residential care places and day training spaces. Mott MacDonald will provide scheme and detailed design, as well as supervise construction of the project.
Clarence Liu, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “We have worked on a number of significant hospital redevelopment projects in Hong Kong and it makes us proud to see how citizens have benefited from our works. This commission further demonstrates our leading design position in the country for healthcare facilities.”
