Quarantine Camps

檢疫營舍

Completed: 2020

Client: ArchSD

Location: Lei Yue Mun, Pat Heung, Sai Kung & Penny’s Bay

為回應2020年初新型冠狀病毒的快速傳播,建築署從二月起分別於五個地點統籌興建了檢疫營舍。利用組裝合成的建築技術,提升建造效率和質素、縮短建造期、令地盤更安全、同時亦減少了建築廢料和建造期間帶來的滋擾。

To respond to the rapid development of the outbreak of Covid-19 since early 2020, the Architectural Services Department (ArchSD) orchestrated the construction of quarantine camps at five selected locations started in early February with the application of Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) technology. MiC has the benefits of enhanced efficiency, shortened construction period, improved site safety performance, with better building quality, less construction waste, as well as less construction nuisance. Details of the five selected locations are as follows.
