Sunrise Cannes in Tseung Kwan O earlier revealed that some units had demolished part of the main wall, and the Buildings Department asked the owner to restore it, which caused public concern. The Buildings Department (BD) and a number of professional bodies today (11 December) jointly organised a seminar on "Instructions for Residential Interior Alterations and Additions", which was attended by over 1,200 members of the public through physical and online means.
In addition, in response to public enquiries on how to identify basic information on building approval plans, such as the location of structural walls, kitchen fire-resistant construction, etc., the Buildings Department will organise two thematic seminars on "Basic Understanding of Approved Plans" on 7 and 24 July.
The Buildings Department, together with the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, the Structural Division of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, today jointly organised a seminar on residential interior alterations and additions to educate the public on the matters to be noted in the process of interior renovation works and the relevant statutory requirements of the Buildings Ordinance.
In addition to representatives of the Buildings Department, a number of speakers provided clear explanations and appropriate professional advice on the relevant residential interior alterations and additions according to their areas of expertise, including the President of the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, Chan Chak-bin, and the Local Affairs Committee Member Lo Yi-cheung, the Deputy Chairman of the Structural Division of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, Tang Chok Kei, and the Honorary Secretary Chan Shiping, the Chairman of the Building Surveying Section of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, Cheung Man Tao, and the former President of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, Ho Juyi.
According to the Buildings Department, two free thematic seminars on "Basic Understanding of Approved Plans" will be held on 7 and 24 July in response to public enquiries on how to identify basic information on building approved plans, such as the location of structural walls and kitchen refractory construction.
The DH emphasises that if alterations and additions to a building are to be carried out, it is advisable to seek advice from a building professional, including the feasibility of the works, and apply to the Buildings Department for approval of the building plans and consent as necessary before commencing the works, so as to ensure safety and not contravene the Buildings Ordinance. Construction professionals and contractors are also required to review the approval plans and other relevant documents in detail, as well as review the relevant requirements of the Buildings Ordinance and whether the relevant works need to be approved by the Buildings Department before proceeding with the relevant works to ensure the safety of occupants and buildings.
