Wong & Ouyang is engaged as the design and executive architect for this is a fast track development with a 42 month programme from concept design to completion, with over 40 design consultants spread around the globe. Careful programme planning including timing of government submissions and the early settlement of basic scheme planning, allowed for early commencement of the foundation and core and shell construction while other designs continued development. In addition, to speed up the construction, various work scopes (e.g. Carcass, ABWF) are subdivided under several nominated subcontracts to allow several contractors to work on different areas concurrently under one Main Contract.
In this project, Wong & Ouyang’s effective management of information flow, with the help of an electronic project data platform and close communication amongst the client and members of the consultant team as well as the contractor teams is essential to allow for fast responses to changes. Also, the close monitoring of workflow to identify and resolves “blockages” is required to facilitate progress.
