This project is to design and build a world class data center in TKO. The data center will incorporate some of the industry’s latest design features providing best-in-class technical solutions focused on resiliency. The data center will have 100MVA utility power supply capacity with fully diverse distribution to technical areas. It will be the Hong Kong’s largest carrier and cloud neutral data center, with 71,000 sq m of space.
The technical visit is free-of-charge. Prior registration is required. The number of participants is limited to 25 and the seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Priority will be given to HKIE-BUD’s members.
Please submit the standard application form by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Only successful applicants will be notified via email on or before 23 October 2019.
Please be informed that if you are not being contacted after submitting your application, you may consider your application unsuccessful.
A CPD certificate will be issued after the completion of technical visit.

The Building Division organized a technical
visit to the Design and Build project of the TKO Data Center on 26 Oct 2019. Upon
completion of the project, the Data Centre will become Hong Kong’s largest
carrier and cloud neutral data centre, with 71,000 sq. m of space. It is adjacent
to the Tseung Kwan O cable landing station and close to both the Hong Kong
Stock Exchange hosting facility and other major submarine cable landing stations.
Ir Sammy Lai kicked off the visit by sharing the
adoption of various innovative and sustainable methodologies in the Data Centre
during construction. Full BIM implementation of Level of Details (LOD) 500 was
adopted in this Design and Build project, which enabled the contractor, Gammon
construction project team to closely monitor the construction quality and identify
design discrepancies at the design stage. The full BIM implementation would
also facilitate smooth and efficient operation of Data Centre.
The second speaker, Ir Rexon Ng, Construction
Manager of Gammon Construction Limited, also pointed out that Gammon has the
advantage of having more than 9000 assets management points to be imported into
the BIM model, the contractors could grasp this opportunity to adopt Design for
Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) in order to facilitate the site progress and
enhance the quality of works. Modular integrated solutions have been developed as
a result and the application experience were shared among the participants. Various
innovative tools have been adopted by the site including AI monitoring and
Gambot application for safety management and quality checking.
After the briefing, a site walk was arranged for
the participants to experience the high-standard technical suite on site and
the safe and efficient production line in the flying factory. The module
production line has been demonstrated to the visitors. The speakers shared the
hurdles of the DfMA construction, including detailed design coordination between
builder’s works and MEP works.
The meaningful visit came to an end with a
Q&A session to exchange valuable technical experience.
