This unique project combines several rebuild programs for some very old existing dormitories and infrastructure, which are distributed on six outlying islands located 296 kilometers out into the sea.

All the programs were carried out within the same period despite challenges such as the distance of the islands, traffic, shortage of construction resources and urgent requirements. Through serious and careful assessment, AECOM proposed the principles of complete functions, practicality and safety, health and comfort, maintenance economy and energy efficiency to fit the requirements and deliver modern dormitories with a standard operation process.

During the process, AECOM combined its global expertise with local experience in infrastructure design. We leveraged extensive resources with the local team to provide multidisciplinary services, including infrastructure, environment, architecture, landscape, structure, geotechnical and mechanical — overcoming all constraints in geography, resources and communications. The scope of our services included site investigation, providing engineering options, turnkey tendering, reviewing deliverables by contractors, construction supervision, acceptance and proper turnover to client.
