About this event

Conventional reclamation method which involves dredging of the soft sediments commonly leads to seabed contamination. Therefore, the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) is proposing the use of the Deep Cement Mixing (DCM) technique to limit post-construction settlement while eliminating the dredging process in the Three-Runway System (3RS) project.

You may wonder how the DCM is implemented. What are the major challenges and the associated mitigation measures? Compared to other ground improvement methods, what are the advantages and disadvantages of adopting the DCM technique?

ICE HKA G&S is honoured to invite Mr Peter Ching, Senior Manager, Geotechnical from AA to present all these issues and highlight its future application in 3RS. Participants are expected to gain technical knowledge on the Deep Cement Mixing technique.


Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis and priority will be given to ICE graduate and student members.

Capacity: 100


Mr Peter Ching

Mr Peter Ching is Principal Manager (Geotechnical, Third Runway) of Airport Authority Hong Kong, currently focusing on developing the Third Runway System Reclamation and Ground Improvement Designs. He has more than 20 years' experience in developing, designing and building major/mega multi-discipline civil projects in Hong Kong and China totaling over HK$20 billion.

Mr Ching is specialized in geotechnical engineering, particularly in reclamations, ground improvements as well as recommending alternative design solutions (value engineering). His diversified roles as Designer, Resident Engineer, Main Contractor and Owner's Representative in different projects have built a board perspective on project management.

Moreover, he has deep understanding of the management practices and interpersonal culture in Mainland China through first-hand project development and management experience. The projects he has involved in included infrastructures (bridges and expressway), reclamations, ports and jetties, commercial structures, urban development (roads and drains, utilities) and terminals.
