Columbarium and Garden of Remembrance
Leighton Asia was engaged by the Architectural Services Department (ASD), to construct the Columbarium and Garden of Remembrance (CGOR).
The CGOR is located on a disused Pulverized Fuel Ash (PFA) lagoon between Lung Kwu Tan and Tuen Mun. The site has stringent environmental restrictions, including specified pollution prevention measures associated with the decommissioning of the PFA lagoon and ecological preservation measures for the protection of the local egret population.
CGOR is an eight-storey reinforced concrete frame building providing 160,000 niches and 4,800m2 of landscaping and ancillary facilities.
The complex includes a two-way two-lane 1.6-kilometer standard access road including a 30 meter link bridge from Nim Wan Road to the Columbarium.
The Contractor’s scope of works included the design and construction of a piled foundation system together with pile caps and strap beams to the building.
The facility provides the largest number of public niches in Hong Kong.
The Contractor suffered numerous delays to the project which included instructed changes and unforeseeable ground conditions. TBH was engaged by the Contractor to provide forensic delay analysis to substantiate the Contractor’s entitlement to an Extension of Time.
TBH reviewed the project documentation, including the progress programmes to identify the cause of the delay(s) and undertook both prospective and retrospective delay analysis including Impact As-Planned, Time Impact and Time Slice Windows analysis, to demonstrate the delays. TBH was also instructed by the client to complete individual fragnet delay programmes.
These programmes were then used to demonstrate the Extension of Time entitlement in a submitted report to the Employer.
