Details :

Construction projects always involve unique design and construction conditions with different level of uncertainties and risks. Therefore, it is a challenge to complete a construction project within the targeted time, cost and quality.

When comparing with other countries/regions, the construction cost in Hong Kong has been maintaining at a comparatively high level for many years. The causative reasons for the high construction cost in Hong Kong can be attributed to various reasons.
