Identical building houses specialist storage facilities
Hong Kong’s continued role as a regional export centre fuelled demand for increased container capacity at the Kwai Chung Container Terminals. Modern Terminals, one of the private container terminal operators, turned to Dragages to increase its warehousing capacity.
Instead of opting for a separate stand-alone building, the decision was made to extend the existing warehouse by building an identical block adjacent to it.
Project challenges included meeting the technical requirements of the client, such as the design and construction of storage space for dangerous industrial products, laboratory facilities and high-tech office suites. The project also required access ramps capable of bearing trucks of up to 30 tonnes in weight. Despite these complications, Dragages successfully completed the project within 16 months.
