Brief description of the project : The project comprised 23 blocks of 8-storeyed building, total area of 260,000 sq.m., for athletes village and a 2- storeyed building with total area of 3,000 sq.m. for international zone including utilities and landscape.
Brief description of services : The consultant is responsible for construction supervision of architectural work, structural work, mechanical system, electrical and data communication system, security system, broadcasting system and sanitary system. The construction of 4,900 unit, athletes village can be said to offer an alternative for the construction of large scale housing projects.
The construction was completed within a period of 2 years, a very short time for a project which comprises twenty three 8 to 14 – storeyed buildings and covers a construction area of 260,000 sq.m. What differentiates the athletes village from other housing projects is the application of the ‘Prefabrication System’. Most components of the buildings e.g. slabs stairways, walls etc. are pre-cast components. It is a most successful project in respect of schedules, budget and quality, to be accomplished with a most limited period of time and under strictly controlled budget.
