Gammon won awards at Construction Safety Week 2020

Gammon shone at this year’s Construction Safety Week, organised by the Development Bureau and the Construction Industry Council, with 21 awards, each of which encapsulates Gammon’s values in action – consideration for local community, safety and health, as well as environmental protection.

Among the various awards, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) medical complex extension project won Gold in the Considerate Contractors Site Award (CCSA), the Outstanding Environmental Management & Performance Award (OEMPA) and the Model Subcontractor Award.

As it was necessary to keep the campus open as usual during the works period, the project team cooperated closely with HKU and adopted quieter and cleaner construction methods. These included the use of saw-cutting slabs and transporting waste-concrete material offsite for recycling into environmental pavers, successfully increasing the recycling rate from 30-60 per cent.

The team aims to achieve the first BEAM Plus New Buildings V2.0 (Pilot Version) Platinum ratings in the category of Government, Institutional and Community.
