    May also discuss about the statutory requirements when a building owner wants to add extension to or alter their structure, e.g., requirements from Buildings Department, Fire Services Department?

      thanks. i’ll try to research on that.

      but is my TOC too general?
      i’m thinking whether i should shift my focus to study the structural addition to existing foundation// or railway foundation..

  2. bt301allenpoon says :

    May be you can start from the way how the new addition by Foster was added to the existing Hung Hom Station structure and discuss the construction accordingly. What is your reason of taking foundation as your study focus?

  3. rachelamm says :

    coz i think from previous study of hung hom station, the foundation was a critical issue when adding new structure on top of it. also it’s related to the transfer of loads.. i’m not sure…

What's your thought?
