Architectural features of Hoi Ha Visitor Centre (18/10/2020)

In the previous post of “My Blog”, I have invited the colleagues from the Architectural Services Department (ArchSD) to talk about the architectural features of the Che Kung Temple Sports Centre in Shatin. This time, I have invited two more colleagues from the department to introduce another building with characteristic designs, Hoi Ha Visitor Centre in Sai Kung West Country Park, which will be opened soon. The design concept of the centre originates from the layout of traditional villages and emphasises integration with nature with a view to providing a leisurely and comfortable activity space for visitors......

Architectural features of Che Kung Temple Sports Centre (11/10/2020)

Located at Sha Tin Tau Road, easily accessible from the nearby MTR Che Kung Temple Station and Chun Shek Bus Terminus, a new sports centre, Che Kung Temple Sports Centre, has just opened for public use since 17 September. A lot of thought has been put into the design of this new sports centre. In particular, architects have deliberately broken the tradition of adopting an all-indoor layout for sports centres. Instead, with transparent layering, the indoor and outdoor areas are connected to integrate with the surrounding landscape. Apart from offering a wide range of recreation and sports facilities, the centre also provides a comfortable place full of nature for neighbourhood residents to hang out and take a break in. This time, I have invited the project team of the Architectural Services Department (ArchSD) to share with us the details of the sports centre......

In the previous post of “My Blog”, I talked about an additional community treatment facility to be set up at the AsiaWorld-Expo and a temporary hospital to be built next to it with the support of the central government.

Setting up of an additional community treatment facility and construction of a temporary hospital (27/9/2020)

As I mentioned recently at a press conference, with the support of the Central People’s Government, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government is to construct a temporary hospital next to the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) and to set up an additional community treatment facility in the AWE to help meet the challenges brought by any future changes in the epidemic situation. The construction cost of these facilities will be fully borne by the Mainland. Here, I would like to express again my gratitude to the Central People’s Government, the Guangdong Provincial Government, and the Shenzhen Municipal Government for implementing these two projects. The construction team already started work on 19 September and is making pretty good progress. Most of the bed partitions and negative pressure enclosed cubicles have been properly set up at the additional community treatment facility in the AWE. We will proceed with the setting up of staff facilities, and the installation of electrical and mechanical equipment, plumbing and water pipes. The entire construction project is expected to be completed in about four weeks......

This week, colleagues of various positions at the EMSD will continue to share with us how they have joined forces with other departments and stakeholders to complete a series of “seemingly impossible missions”……
