Dragages wins Construction Industry Volunteering Project – Gold Award
16 July 2018
In 2015, Dragages Hong Kong leveraged our construction expertise to design and build a Sensory Gardenfor a school, which serves children with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities. By stimulating all five senses in four garden zones, the Sensory Garden turns to be a valuable learning therapy facility. Families, students, together with our CSR volunteers witnessed the inauguration of the Sensory Garden in October 2017.
In July this year, Dragages Hong Kong received “Excellence in Construction Industry Volunteering Project – Gold Award” in the 1Construction Industry Volunteer Award Scheme by 2Construction Industry Sports & Volunteering Programme (CISVP), in recognition of our long-term commitment to the community and our promotion of social integration.
