Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Building and Ancillary Facilities

Hong Kong - To capture the rapid growth of the regional cruise market, the Hong Kong government wanted a new 4-storey cruise terminal at the southern tip of the former Kai Tak airport runway. The facility including Customs, Immigration, Quarantine and Police facilities, ancillary commercial area and a landscaped deck. The government estimated that building this new facility would turn Hong Kong into the pre-eminent regional hub for cruise ships and boost the city’s revenue by $2.2bn a year.

Asia’s greenest cruise liner terminals

The design and construction of the project had to be completed within a very aggressive 30 month contract period in order to prepare for the arrival of the first cruise liner in June 2013. The design of the facility included some challenging design elements including different types of cladding on the roof which meant that the installation and fabrication periods was longer than expected.


We  were appointed as the quantity surveyor consultant on this project and provided full range of services. These included tender assessments, tender award, post-contract administration, cost control and management throughout the duration of the project plus the settlement of the final account.

The team was committed to design the terminal in the most sustainable way as possible. Green features included the adoption of a district cooling system for air-conditioning and recycling rain water for irrigation of landscaped areas.  As a result of these efforts, the Hong Kong Green Building Council awarded the project its highest “BEAM Plus Platinum” rating.
