Centralised Government Godown
Dragages wins milestone design-and-build project
This two-building, purpose-built, warehouse in Chai Wan was to serve as a storage facility for multiple government departments. It was the first time that the Architectural Services Department had awarded a design-and-build contract for an entire building.
The buildings were designed with different configurations to accommodate specific user requirements. Some storeys were up to eight metres high, while others required specialised storage facilities for hazardous materials and drugs.
By combining in-situ casting and precasting methods, the project was completed within 24 months.
