Dragages Hong Kong is glad to award of contract for the design and construction of integrated facilities in San Po Kong comprising a four-storey sports centre and a two-level basement public carpark with an automated parking system.

The two-level basement construction includes the first Hong Kong basement carpark equipped with a Vertical Lifting and Horizontal Sliding (VLHS) parking system adopted by the HKSAR Government. The works involve excavation of a maximum depth of 16 meters for mucking out a volume of 110,000 m3 in the heart of San Po Kong. Upon completion, the basement carpark will provide over 300 parking spaces for vehicles of various sizes.

Furthermore, the Sports Hub will provide a Health Staircase at the external wall, facilitating smooth and harmonious movement from one floor to the next, creating a ‘walkable, stayable and enjoyable’ journey for the public.

Mr. Wes JONES, Managing Director of Dragages Hong Kong, said, “This challenging design and build project will showcase the company’s strengths in underground works, delivery of quality public buildings and through our subsidiary BYME, expertise in building services. The use of VLHS system is an exciting first for the city in basement carpark, and one which can assist in reducing the footprint of the built environment as we strive for developing low carbon solutions for the communities in which we work”.

Construction will be commenced on 31st May 2022 with completion scheduled in May 2025.
