The Expansion of Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works project was awarded the ACEHK Annual Award 2020

1 June 2021

The Project Team, including DSD, Binnies Hong Kong Limited and Build King – Kum Shing Joint Venture, of the Expansion of Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works won "The Association of Consulting Engineers of Hong Kong (ACEHK) Annual Award", signifying recognition of the engineering excellence, innovative spirit and sustainability by the engineering community.

The works mainly consist of the in-situ expansion of the existing Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works by increasing the treatment capacity of 1,660 m3/day by three times to 5,000 m3/day, with the provision of a temporary sewage treatment plant (TSTP) with treatment capacity 2,500 m3/day within the existing footprint to maintain the sewage treatment services during the expansion works. While facing the challenges to construct the TSTP at a very small footprint of 750m2 (approximately the size of 1.5 basketball courts) and to commission it within 18 months from contract commencement, the Project Team collaborated closely with the application of different innovations and technologies such as the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach, digitalisation of site management, and building information modelling (BIM) to streamline the construction programme and enhance the project’s productivity, efficiency, safety and quality, contributing to a safe, productive and sustainable construction site.
