Building Engineering and Mechanical and Electrical Maintenance
The construction industry in Hong Kong builds high-rise residential and office buildings with a variety of building technologies, such as reclamation, design and construction. Construction projects can be divided into three main categories:
1. Buildings (including residential, commercial, industrial / storage / services);
2. Structures and facilities (including transport, other public facilities, environment, sports and entertainment); and
3. Non-construction sites work (including decoration, maintenance and repair).
The electrical and mechanical maintenance industry covers aircraft maintenance, electrical machinery, firefighting, gas fuel, air conditioning and refrigeration, lifts and escalators, plant machinery, water services, telecommunications, railway electrical and mechanical services, and ship maintenance. The maintenance and inspection of electrical and mechanical equipment, as well as major infrastructure and building construction projects, require expertise in the mechanical and electrical industries. With the development of society and economy, the public safety awareness has increased, and hence the demand for mechanical and electrical workers has increased as well.
