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.
