Mott MacDonald picked for Hong Kong brownfield study

19 Sep 16 The government of Hong Kong has commissioned Mott MacDonald to carry out a study designed to make better use of existing land to meet growing demand for public housing.

Brownfield sites in Hong Kong are currently being used for industrial operations such as open storage, industrial workshops, logistics operations and recycling yards, as well as the storage of construction materials and machinery.

Mott MacDonald will undertake preliminary building design works, including undertaking planning and engineering assessments. The aim is to recommend an operational model and investigate the economic viability of the proposed multi-storey buildings for accommodating the target brownfield operations.

Sai Ching, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “We are excited to be part of this pioneering initiative by the Government of Hong Kong. The findings will set a benchmark for similar land-use improvement studies in the future.”

The feasibility study is due to be completed by the end of next year.
