An unparalleled experience
The Hong Kong Jockey Club is one of the world’s leading horse-racing organisations, providing first class sporting and betting entertainment, fine dining and recreational facilities. To maintain an unparalleled race day experience, the club has undertaken a major redevelopment to create a racecourse fit for a new generation of horse-racing, and we were the construction manager chosen to deliver it.
Top ten safety essentials
The renovation and rebuilding work required a significant structural and MEP upgrade over a three year, three phased schedule. Working in a live operating environment during the September to June racing season presented us with a unique logistical challenge with high levels of public interface. It was essential the execution of the project was carried out with the highest standards of health and safety.
We engaged with the supply chain to introduce practices not altogether common in Hong Kong. As a result the MEP trade contractor reviewed their own working practices and held a safety engagement workshop with major suppliers and sub-contractors and promoted the use of a ‘top 10 safety essentials’ scheme, proving how the introduction of global HSE standards can benefit local industry.
A new generation of horse-racing
By unlocking the complex logistics of this major renovation to fit a tight schedule, and not compromising on our global health and safety standards in doing so, we have delivered a world class sport and leisure facility fit for a future generation of race-goers.
“The Hong Kong Jockey Club is highly satisfied with the construction management services Mace has provided to successfully deliver the fast track construction of our renovations at the grandstands in Sha Tin from 2012 to 2014. This project has been completed smoothly and successfully on schedule under Mace’s management”
