The Society of Construction Law Hong Kong International Conference 2021 was successfully held on 12 November 2021. The theme for this year’s conference was Hong Kong Tomorrow – Opportunities and Challenges for Future Projects.
Kaiser Leung chaired the panel session on “Construction 2.0 – Project governance issues in previous infrastructure projects, lessons learnt and what can be done for future projects?”.
Kaiser had the pleasure of being joined by Mr. Paul Shieh SC, Mr. James Niehorster, Mr. Channi Matharu and Mr. Boyd Merrett.
In recent years, the Hong Kong construction industry has witnessed a series of incidents concerning high profile projects, giving rise to issues such as commissioning delays, site safety and construction delivery quality. The Government has been advocating “Construction 2.0”, with various measures to ensure the overall productivity, quality, safety and environmental performance of the industry which have given rise to changes to the corresponding contractual arrangements, health and safety legislation reform. The session explored the risks arising and how they could be addressed.
