The development of
cavern fire safety design in Hong Kong evolved from the cavern projects around
the 1980s. The Government of HKSAR has completed the “Study on Long-term
Strategy for Cavern Development – Feasibility Study” (the Strategic Cavern
Study). Under the Strategic Cavern Study, a suite of initiatives was
recommended to facilitate Cavern Development to enhance land supply in Hong
Kong. The rock cavern initiative was
also highlighted in the Policy Addresses.
This technical webinar
will introduce the local and international cavern developments and share the
respective fire safety design requirements for cavern design.
