HKT, KTSPL and Hip Hing Engineering achieved a large step forward in smart construction
HKT joint hands with Kai Tak Sports Park Limited (KTSPL) and Hip Hing Engineering Company Limited (Hip Hing Engineering) in a cross-industry partnership to realise Hong Kong’s largest sports infrastructure, which is also the first construction site in the city which equipped with a dedicated 5G network infrastructure.
Constructing in a smart way
HKT, KTSPL and Hip Hing Engineering shares the common goal of achieving smart construction and equipped the Sports Park’s construction site with dedicated 5G coverage. 5G-powered applications such as mobile management systems, robotics and Internet of Things (IoT) boost work efficiency and communication among construction personnel.
Simultaneous collaboration at construction site
HKT built a dedicated 5G network consisting of 5G base stations and numerous 5G routers and Wi-Fi access points. This reliable network facilitates real-time simultaneous collaboration between site personnel of about 2,000 people, and enables large files and huge amounts of data to be transmitted at a speed 20 times faster than 4G. 5G also optimised Building Information Modelling (BIM) and increased project constructability while saving time and cost.
Efficient and high-quality management
HKT also delivered a 5G mobile management system at the construction site. Aiming to minimise cabling works while optimising management quality, 4K HDR cameras were installed on tower cranes. These cameras with zoom-in function can capture and track individual movements or activities in specific areas of the construction site in real time, empowering effective remote monitoring of the site, and greatly enhancing safety in lifting operation.
