Life of a Heavy Lifter

28 June 2023

Programme Highlight

Modularize Build is increasingly being adopted in Hong Kong for its ability to improve build quality, reduce construction program, and optimize material use i.e. require fewer temporary works.

The speaker will introduce Heavy Lifting, share ideas about abnormal load engineering and ways to handle heavy loading and large-scale modularization built in the construction industry, with examples demonstrating how heavy lifting facilitate alternative solutions for “tricky” site adopted on the installation of construction material. Modularized-Built enables safe, sound and quality of products. The most commonly used Heavy Lifting Equipment, i.e. Strand Jacks, SPMTs etc. will be also introduced in this sharing session.

Large-scale modularized construction is originally developed/advanced in the Energy sector. The speaker will discuss the history of Heavy Lifting plant and equipment’s development and its future applications, introduce the Heavy Lifting opportunities and its possible application in Hong Kong, especially for working around tight-spaced city centre.
