About this event

Please note that this webinar will be held from 19:00 – 20:00 HK time

The webinar is jointly organised by CIHT (Hong Kong Region) and ICE HKA. Tai Kwun is Hong Kong’s largest-ever conservation and revitalization project. Arup transformed this 170-year old historic compound into a vibrant hub for arts, performances and culture at the city’s heart. A total of 16 historic buildings – all classified as declared monuments, have been meticulously restored for adaptive re-use, setting a new benchmark for future conservation projects both locally and abroad.

The Tai Kwun project has been recognized for its technical excellence and won the grand award in both Structural and Fire Engineering in 2019 by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, and the highly commended award for the Brunel Medal by the Institution of Civil Engineers (UK) in 2020.
