The Government of Hong Kong has recently awarded the multi-billion dollar contract for the design, build and operation of the Kai Tak Sports Park to the JV between New World Development Company Limited and NWS Holdings Ltd.
Leigh & Orange Limited is proud to have led the multi-discipline Technical Services Consultant Team through the Stage 1 process – advising the government through the development of the reference design, resolution of technical issues, as well as assisting in the worldwide tendering process. We now look forward to our next role in Stage 2, supporting the entire project team to carry out and complete the design and construction of this exciting project.
On completion, the Kai Tak Sports Park will boast a 50,000-seat main stadium, with a soundproof retractable roof and flexible pitch surface to host major sports events. The adaptive design of the stadium will facilitate the hosting of a wide range of entertainment and community events. The 10,000-seat Indoor Sports Centre will provide a large multipurpose space for hosting major competitions as well as for everyday community use. While the 5,000-seat Public Sports Ground for hosting school athletics meetings, athletics training and local football league games will also be open to the public for jogging and exercise.
The Kai Tak Sports Park will also provide large open spaces for public enjoyment, with facilities such as outdoor ball courts, open lawn areas, children’s play areas, fitness stations and more. Other facilities in the precinct include a health and wellness centre, bowling centre and retail, food and beverage outlets.
