Tseung Kwan O – Primary and Secondary Schools

Completed Project

Initiatives to improve quality, reduce wastage

In a bid to improve construction quality, shorten construction time and reduce material wastage, the Government launched an innovative pilot scheme for the construction of five schools in Tseung Kwan O.

Dragages opted to use pre-cast elements and in-situ concrete to form the integral structure. Over 80 percent of the in-situ structures were cast using steel formwork, reducing construction waste and eliminating the need for plastering before painting.

The combined use of various construction techniques not only minimised waste and enhanced quality, construction time of a classroom block’s superstructure was also reduced by almost a month and a half.
