Government Quarters at Lai King
Mechanised construction method delivers better quality and features
The design-and-build contract for the three 38-storey Government quarters in Lai King allowed Dragages greater flexibility to recommend cost-saving and quality-enhancing features. One such initiative was the extensive use of mechanised construction methods, including the use of system formwork and precast façade panels and stairs. It was a building technology in which Dragages had a strong track-record.
The approach delivered a four-day-per-floor construction cycle as well as enabling quality finishing works, reduction of waste and a safer working environment.
