Scope and Objectives
Curtain wall buildings have been prevalent in the local building industry since1970s. They are well-engineered structural system comprising mullions and transoms affixed to the structural frame of the building via Halfen Channel Embeds or subsequent Anchor Bolts due to either mis-alignment or amendment of structural frame layout. Glass panes are fixed to mullions and transoms by structural sealants and/or mechanical fixings.


Concern is given to the structural and rain-leakage-free performance of the curtain wall system in buildings, especially when they come under the Mandatory Building Inspection Scheme.


Even though some general guidelines for the inspection methodology of curtain wall system in buildings are stipulated in the Code of Practice for MBIS and MWIS, the issues on specific scope and acceptance criteria of prescribed inspection of curtain wall system in buildings may need elaboration. Hence, a rational inspection methodology is hereby devised based on the best practice offered by local curtain wall experts.


The seminar is tailor-made for the practising building professionals comprising Registered Inspectors, Authorized Persons, Registered Structural Engineers, Technically Competent Persons and façade practitioners to attend.


The HKISC is very pleased to invite Ms Nina Yiu of Ove Arup & Partners (Hong Kong) Limited and Ir Dr Dominic Yu of Alpha Consulting Limited to jointly deliver the seminar.
