Anderson Quarry Site - An Epitome of our Construction Development
Until 2013, this site was a major supplier of local quarry for Hong Kong’s construction needs. Now, it is being transformed to house 25,000 people and others community facilities including a quarry park by 2024. By 2030, Public Works Central Laboratory and Government Record Centre will also be housed inside the 200 m high rock slope. Anderson Quarry thus truly reflects the past, present and future of our construction industry.

Hand In Hand
For the DSD’s ongoing project “Relocation of Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to Caverns”, the project team was about to carry out the surveying work at the existing THEES tunnel. The treated sewage of the future Sha Tin Cavern Sewage Treatment Works would be conveyed through the THEES tunnel from Nui Po Shan to Kai Tak for discharge. DSD, supervising team (AECOM), contractors and workers made themselves a small cheering.

With an aim to support STEM education and nurture students to learn more about the engineering industry, the Institution was invited to participate in the Yan Chai STEM Faire 2022.
The Yan Chai STEM Faire is a flagship event by the Yan Chai Hospital Board. The faire was jointly organised by over 20 kindergartens, primary schools and secondary schools under the Yan Chai Group to showcase their STEM education to the public, as well as to facilitate knowledge exchange between schools and the industry. For the first time, the HKIE was invited to participate in this meaningful event and to share with the public information about HKIE and our contribution to society.
From woodblock model cars to self-built kart vehicles; from robot games to application of AI for mask detection, the event demonstrated various talent and STEM potential of the students.
With the help of the YMC, we hosted a booth to introduce the HKIE to the schools and the public. Participants experienced different aspects of the engineering industry through quizzes and games. They also learned about the Institution and how various disciplines of engineers in Hong Kong have contributed to the society. Through the sharing by our young engineers, the public also learned more about the career prospects of engineers.
The Institution will continue its efforts in promoting engineering via STEM education to the public.
The second thematic webinar “Building information modelling (BIM) and its engineering applications” organised by the Continuing Professional Development Committee (CPDC) on 21 May 2022 attracted over 700 members from various disciplines.
Various standards and guidelines on BIM were developed to enhance the project management and asset management, and improve the overall productivity of the construction industry. First up was Ir Dr Llewellyn Tang, Founder of Llewellyn and Partners Co. Ltd. introducing the ISO19650 for managing information over the whole life cycle of a built asset using BIM. Data management is one of the utmost importance in BIM uses, with BIM projects can be designed, checked and audited properly. Ir Dr Tang presented the AutoCDE, the standard compliant environment in which BIM information (structured data, 3D models and documents) is specified, collected, assured, stored, presented and exploited during various construction and operation phases.
Mr Simon Ng, Head of BIM in China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong) Ltd, presented various showcases of BIM applications in civil and E&M projects. With the adoption of BIM in each project phase, all stakeholders including designers, contractors, clients and even the public could visualise the details and programme of the works. To this extent, the project team could ensure the works are constructed in accordance with the original plan in a safe and efficient manner. Before the end of his presentation, Mr Ng also introduced different innovative uses of BIM applications and highlighted eight things that we should know for a better experience with BIM.
The question-and-answer session was moderated by Ir Victor Lo, Deputy Chairman of CPDC. The participants and panellists had a fruitful discussion on the BIM standards and the BIM applications. Last but not least, Ir Paul Chan, Chairman of CPDC, thanked all distinguished speakers and closed this thematic webinar on BIM.
