FCE joins hands with CEDD on research studies for sustainable infrastructure development and land formation

1 Jun 2023

Sharing a common vision to create a safe, green and sustainable environment for the benefit of society, FCE and the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 4 May 2023. The collaboration would couple FCE’s research strengths with CEDD’s experience in construction projects by developing new technologies for application in public works projects to cope with the limitations of existing engineering technologies and reduce construction time.

The MoU was signed by Director of Civil Engineering and Development, Mr Michael FONG, and Dean of Faculty, Prof. Xiang-dong LI, and witnessed by Permanent Secretary for Development (Works), Mr Ricky LAU, and President of PolyU, Prof. Jin-Guang TENG.

FCE has partnered with CEDD to apply our research results for developing engineering solutions to enhance productivity, project quality and site safety. Examples include the use of high strength grade 690 steel in the building of the Cross Bay Link in Tseung Kwan O and the use of AI techniques to carry out automated identification of landslide trails on aerial photographs for slope safety management. With the MoU in place, the collaboration between FCE and CEDD will be deepened to further promote research in sustainable infrastructure development and land formation.
