Inland Revenue Centre in Kai Tak Development
The Inland Revenue Centre (IRC) received the top award in the New building category. This 18-storey government office building focuses on blending with the community, innovative construction, sustainability and modern workplace layout. Arup delivered total engineering consultancy services throughout the project.
By adopting BIM in the design process, our team was able to forecast the risks related to design for construction, safety, maintenance etc. The design intent was efficiently verified in advance whilst carrying out combined services coordination. With the aid of BIM, we could also effectively study and configurate the MiC and multi-trade integrated Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MiMEP) design with the construction team. With the extensive use of MiC, MiMEP and Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) construction approaches, such as MiC toilets, MiMEP ceiling modules for office corridors and DfMA installation for sprinkler valves sets, the building services installations were successfully completed on time with good quality.
