Mott MacDonald to deliver feasibility study on accommodation of brownfield operations, Hong Kong

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by the Government of Hong Kong’s Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) to look at the possibility of accommodating a number of brownfield operations in multi-storey buildings. This is with a view to making better use of existing land to meet the growing demand for public housing and other social and economic development needs.

Brownfield sites in Hong Kong are currently being used for industrial operations such as open storage, port–backup facilities, industrial workshops, logistics operations and recycling yards, as well as the storage of construction materials and machinery.

Mott MacDonald will undertake preliminary building design works, including undertaking planning and engineering assessments, recommending the operational model and investigating the economic viability of the proposed multi-storey buildings for accommodating the target brownfield operations. The study will involve consultation with stakeholders including existing brownfield operators, industry representatives and relevant government authorities and departments.

Sai Ching, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said “We are excited to be part of this pioneering initiative by the Government of Hong Kong. The findings will set a benchmark for similar land-use improvement studies in the future.”

The feasibility study is due to be completed by the end of 2017.
