About this event

The Happy Valley underground storm water storage scheme is the largest NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) option C (target contract with activity schedule) awarded by the Hong Kong government to date. It is also the first in Hong Kong to trial the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Subcontract (ECS).

Designed to alleviate flood risk in the Happy Valley area of Wan Chai, the scheme involves construction of a 60,000m3 underground stormwater storage tank, a pump house, a 650m long twin-cell box culvert and associated works including reinstatement of sports pitches and landscaping.

The success of the Happy Valley scheme and other NEC3 pilot projects led to the Hong Kong government deciding at the end of 2013 to extend the pilot use of NEC3 contracts generally for public sector projects tendered in 2015 and 2016.

We have organised an exclusive visit to the project site on 10 December 2015. The scheme Project Manager, Mr WH Luk, Chief Engineer at DSD, will provide an insight into the practical implementation, challenges and best practice of managing the project. He is a pioneer on the use of NEC contract in Hong Kong and is responsible for the planning, design and supervision of various drainage projects.
