Goldwave Structural Steel Engineering Limited was honored to be selected by Hip Sheng Construction Co., Ltd. to participate in the Tai Wai Station Property Development. The development covered a site area of 600,000 sq ft of shopping space and 2.7 million sq ft of residential space.
This project included a 5-floor mega podium structure steelwork, extending from 1 steel podium and steel platform which were built above the existing rooftop of Tai Wai station. In addition, 4 brand new podiums and steel platforms were built on the existing passenger transportation interchange.
Goldwave’s large span truss solution provided an elegant, cost-effective method of spanning long distances. The “extensive use of 27-meter long Steel Trusses” allowed larger column free spaces to provide maximum flexibility for the internal layouts and enhance user experience.
The Spaces between the trusses accommodate the Building Services and can be used on occasions to provide areas of enhanced headroom as may be needed.
2 newly built bridges are to be connected to the Interchange across Che Hung Mui Road and Mei Tin Road.
Along with this vast development, the project demanded for the substantial scale of temporary platforms and steel ramps to support the construction of new podiums and the basement structure adjacent to the existing rail track of East Rail. Total steel consumption of temporary and permanent works reached 15,000 Tons.
