Geotechnical Engineering for Infrastructure Development

annual seminar organised by Geotechnical Division


Infrastructure development in Hong Kong has evolved to meet the changing demands of society. The 1950s-1960s focused on basic needs in water supply and public housing. Expansion of new towns and the railway network accelerated in the 1970s-1980s. The 1990s heralded the airport and port strategy, while the 2000’s brought greater cross-border connectivity. 2010s brought a focus on driving enhanced economic competitiveness and improving living environments. The recent era of infrastructure development, including the Ten Major Infrastructure Projects, further enhanced Hong Kong’s transport network, urban environment and the quality of life of the population.

The HKIE Geotechnical Division Annual Seminar 2018 is themed “Geotechnical Engineering for Infrastructure Development” to recognize the contribution of geotechnical engineering in shaping Hong Kong as a world-class city for business and living. It provides a platform for engineers to share and document their professional experiences working on infrastructure projects in Hong Kong and overseas.
