Government Quarters at West Kowloon

Completed Project

Precast walls maximise efficiency and quality

To design and build the two 37-storey residential towers, a mechanised construction method was again used that involved precast concrete elements.

A precast internal wall system was introduced for this project. Electrical conduit and sockets were cast into the walls, enhancing the quality of the works and minimising wet trades after structural works.

Similar to the project in Lai King, such construction approach enabled quality finishing works and at the same time reduced waste and created a safer working environment.
