The HKIE joins the Independent Review Panel on the Partial Collapse of Central Police Station
There has been wide concern from the public on the partial collapse of the Married Inspectors’ Quarters on the evening of 29 May 2016 during the revitalisation of the Central Police Station. In response to the incident, a three-member Independent Review Panel has been formed by The Hong Kong Jockey Club to examine the incident.
The Institution is pleased to announce that Ir Dr Greg WONG Chak-yan, Past President of the Institution has been appointed Chairman of the Panel while Ir Benny LAI Siu-lun, a Committee Member of the HKIE Structural Division, will be the Panel member. Both will work together with Australian engineer Mr Simon Wiltshier.
Given the extensive structural engineering experience of the three Panel members, we believe that the Panel will provide a comprehensive review on various aspects of and the likely causes contributing to the partial collapse, and the enquiry will soon be completed with findings submitted to the Club’s Board of Stewards.
