The HKIE notices the findings of the Independent Review Panel on the Partial Collapse of the Central Police Station

The Institution notes that the enquiry by the three-member Independent Review Panel established by The Hong Kong Jockey Club to examine the partial collapse of the Married Inspectors’ Quarters Building at the Central Police Station Compound on 29 May 2016 has been completed with the findings to address the concerns of the general public.


The Panel Chairman Ir Dr Greg WONG Chak-yan, Past President of the Institution, together with Panel Members Ir Benny LAI Siu-lun, Committee Member of the HKIE Structural Division, and Australian engineer Mr Simon Wiltshier conducted a comprehensive review on various aspects of the incident. A detailed and professional examination on the possible causes with advice on the incident is provided for the consideration of the Administration.


It is anticipated that public understanding on engineering profession, structural safety and heritage preservation will be enhanced, and with reference to the professional opinions in the findings, recurrence of similar incidents can be avoided in the future. The Institution will continue to respond to the needs of the community and provide professional engineering advice to safeguard the safety of people and buildings in Hong Kong.
