Additional Security Facilities to Strengthen Protection for Declared Monument
The EMSD is committed in providing engineering solutions that suit clients’ needs. One of the challenging projects we take up is the installation of a closed-circuit television (CCTV) system to strengthen security for the Hong Kong Railway Museum of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD). As the museum includes an old station building which is a declared monument, the installation work was inevitably subject to severe constraints. Nevertheless, we managed to overcome the challenges. With careful planning, we worked out a tailor-made solution that met the client’s requirements, including conservation needs, and at the same time equipped the museum with modern security facilities, striking a balance between conservation and development, so that this historical building could maintain its original appearance and continue serving the public afterwards.
Under the Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance, any works on this monument had to comply with the requirements of the work permit that the LCSD had obtained from the Development Bureau. Indeed, the installation of the CCTV system in this century-old monument without affecting the heritage value of the building and its exhibits, including the style of the building as well as its interior and exterior, was particularly challenging.
The team provided our client with a CCTV system that applied Internet Protocol technology and can be easily maintained. During the planning and design process, we conducted site visits and interacted with project stakeholders. We closely liaised and followed up with the LCSD and the Antiquities and Monuments Office and agreed with them on a precise and detailed installation plan that encompassed various aspects such as cable routes, materials and installation methods. Efforts were also made to ensure that the details as set out in the plan complied with the requirements of the relevant work permit, including the requirement that the architectural style and features of the monument be conserved. Without affecting the client’s daily operation, the installation was successfully completed within six months.
