KCRC welcomes Construction Industry Review Committee Report
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) today welcomed the publication of the Construction Industry Review Committee Report.
"As a major client of the construction industry, we fully support the Committee’s recommendations to lift the quality and cost-competitiveness of the industry," a KCRC spokesman said.
"We agree that efficient project delivery, equitable risk sharing, improved communications, and raised ethical standards in the industry are important issues to be dealt with speedily and conclusively.
"We are already implementing most of the specific recommendations put forward by the Committee, including the use of value management in construction, providing site safety training to all concerned staff and incorporating environmental performance criteria into tender assessment," he said.
"KCRC will carefully consider all of the recommendations and supports the committee’s view that industry-wide implementation must be achieved as soon as possible," he added.
