HKT, Hong Kong’s leading telecommunications service provider, has announced a partnership with Kai Tak Sports Park and Hip Hing Engineering to set new benchmarks in smart building through the use of 5G technology.
While Hong Kong’s highly anticipated Kai Tak Sports Park is currently under development and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2023, HKT, Kai Tak Sports Park Ltd (KTSPL) and Hip Hing Engineering expect the applications to be powered by 5G such as mobile system management, robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT) will boost work efficiency and communication between construction personnel.
On the 28 hectare site, HKT built a dedicated 5G network consisting of 5G base stations and numerous 5G routers and Wi-Fi access points. This network allows simultaneous real-time collaboration between site personnel with approximately 2,000 people, allowing the transmission of large files and huge amounts of data at speeds 20 times faster than 4G.
5G technology helps optimize building information modeling (BIM), while HKT also provides 5G mobile management system on construction site. In order to minimize cabling work while optimizing management quality, 4K HDR cameras were installed on the tower cranes.
These zoom-in cameras can capture and track individual movements or activities in specific areas of the construction site in real time, enabling efficient remote site monitoring and dramatically improving the safety of lifting operations.
All three parties said the Kai Tak Sports Park project team would consider applying more artificial intelligence (AI) technology on the construction site to minimize the risks to the health and safety of workers.
Kenneth Ma, Executive Director of Hip Hing Engineering and Director (Design and Construction) of KTSPL, said that “our vision is to transform Hong Kong into a world-class smart city through our expertise in construction, as well as our partnerships. with key like-minded people. stakeholders.
“People-centered design is the basic principle for building a smart city. We strive to use the latest technology to keep workers safe, to effectively follow our project plan and schedule for project owners, and to set a good standard for the local construction industry.
“We are delighted to partner with HKT to use 5G technology on the construction site of the city’s most iconic sports infrastructure, to improve overall safety performance with efficiency, precision and precision. In the future, I hope that 5G smart infrastructure solutions will open up new perspectives for the construction industry. “
HKT Commercial Group Managing Director Tom Chan added, “HKT is striving to revolutionize the construction industry with the development of 5G and emerging technologies such as IoT and AI applications.
“Through different 5G applications, we are improving BIM performance and making construction safer, smarter and more efficient. It accelerates our progress to help us achieve the three important goals of the construction industry: total safety, delivery of projects on time, and efficiency in controlling the construction budget.
The 28-hectare park will be part of the redevelopment of the site of the former Hong Kong International Airport in Kai Tak. The sports park will include a 50,000-seat main stadium with a retractable roof, an indoor sports arena with a capacity of up to 10,000 and a public sports field with a capacity of 5,000.
These locations will be complemented by large open public spaces, as well as retail and dining spaces, with fresh renderings of the project, which was designed by Populous and will be operated by ASM Global, having been released in December.
KTSPL is the contracting party for the design, construction and operation of Kai Tak Sports Park. Hip Hing Engineering recently explained how the two sides are tackling the challenges of the park’s development in their internal newsletter, available here, with HKT now written to help what is the city’s first construction site to be fitted with a 5G dedicated. network infrastructure.
