This The scope of work comprises the upgrading of teaching facilities and internal renovation at 1/F & 2/F of Chi Wah Learning Commons and Room 321 & 322 of Run Run Shaw Building for the University of Hong Kong.

The overall purpose of the upgrading work is to enhance and improve the existing acoustic performance at the individual meeting and study rooms and to provide updated AV/meeting facilities to users. All existing finishes and partitions were removed and rebuilt and the existing building services were relocated or modified for the execution of the works. In order to demonstrate the compliance to the specified acoustic insulation requirements, on site performance test was carried out.

Apart from upgrading works, there are several internal renovation works such as the reconstruction of student lounge coffee corner and study hubs and the integration of Room 321 and 322 at RRS. As requested by HKU and the user, the execution of all the contracted works were divided into 3 phases and were subject to the noisy work restriction and studying and examination period restriction. Though with such stringent restriction on noisy work, Tysan managed to handover the study areas to the end users within the agreed time frame.
