Hong Kong drops six contractors over high lead levels

1 Oct 15 Six Hong Kong contractors have been banned from tendering for six months after excess lead content was found in the water at 11 public housing projects they had worked on.

The Hong Kong Housing Authority's Tender Committee has decided to take the regulatory action against four building contractors and two related companies that were involved in the construction of 11 public rental estates. The authority will not consider any new works tenders submitted by the six for a seven-month period.

The contractors are China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong), Paul Y General Contractors, Shui On Building Contractors, Yau Lee Construction Company, China Overseas Building Construction and Paul Y Construction Company.

The Tender Committee also decided to remove China State, Shui On and Yau Lee from the authority's ‘Premier League’ of contractors with effect from today.
