G&S: Applications and challenges of deep cement mixing, Hong Kong

About this event

With the rise in concerns of water pollution caused by reclamation with the traditional dredging method, Hong Kong’s construction industry is continuously seeking less invasive methods and technologies to be used in reclamation. The Deep Cement Mixing method is a non-dredge method recently applied to various projects in Hong Kong, including the reclamation for Tung Chung New Town Extension.

ICE HKA G&S is honoured to have Prof Masaki Kitazume, professor of Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, to present on the ground improvement technique – Deep Cement Mixing, that imposes little adverse impact on the environment when applied in land reclamation. This method is a deep in-situ admixture stabilisation technique, which its applications and challenges will be highlighted by our speaker.

Capacity: 100
