Construction Industry

Public Works Projects

128. While making substantial investment in infrastructure, the Government has also strengthened its construction cost control. Last year, the Development Bureau established a dedicated office to manage project costs. A comprehensive review of the public works requirements and policies is underway to enhance cost-effectiveness. The Government will also enhance the existing procurement procedures for public works projects to reduce costs.

129. The Government is closely scrutinising the estimates of works projects at the planning and design stage to optimise designs and lower costs according to a “fitness for purpose” and “no frills” principle. The Development Bureau has so far examined about 60 works projects and achieved savings of about $13 billion in project costs.
