Many structural engineering graduates in Hong Kong have experience of design and construction of state-of-the-art high-rise buildings. This technical and commercial experience, together with that gained from complying with building legislation, provides a sound foundation for the development of project management skills.

<h4>Kowloon Walled City Demolition</h4>

Kowloon Walled City Demolition

A settlement at Kowloon City has existed since the Sung Dynasty when it was used as a military base to manage a salt trade. In 1688 the City became fortified when a signal station was established. About 1810, a small fort was built at the City; its strategic, administrative and economic position remained relatively insignificant until the commencement of British administration of Hong Kong Island in 1841. Since then, the Chinese increased their presence at the City and by 1847 a perimeter wall had been built, and the ‘Kowloon Walled City’ came into being. J.W. Fearns
