Date: 8-11-2013

The Scope of Works


This method statement is purposed to establish and illustrate the construction method for both
pipeworks (Storm and Sewerage) and manholes for Shatin to Central Link (Contract 1102 Hin Keng
Station and Approach Structures) Project as specified in project specification. This method statement
outlines the procedure for constructing drainage pipes to fulfill the oncoming needs of Hin Keng
Station. In addition, this report will also intend to describe the concreting procedures of manholes.
The proposed alignment and location of pipeworks and manholes please refers to the enclosed
drawings in Appendix A.

2.

Work Methodology and Testing Procedure


Underground Services location plans made available by the Client/ Engineer will be viewed. A Cable
Avoidance Tool (CAT) will be used to identify the location of underground services before
excavation.
