New Civil Aviation Department headquarters ready by 2012

Construction of the CAD Headquarters is expected to be completed by the end of 2012. A topping ceremony was recently held for the project.

 

It will provide quality services for the industry and the general public.

The design of the building incorporates sustainable, environmentally friendly and educational themes. All facilities are expected to be commissioned by the end of 2013. Upon the commissioning of the new headquarters, not only will it be able to centralise all functional divisions of the department, but it will also provide a new Air Traffic Control Centre with state-of-the-art equipment and more controller workstations to cater for future medium- to long-term air traffic demand. It will also provide sufficient space and flexibility for future expansion. In addition, some of the facilities of the new headquarters will be opened to the public.

Speaking at the Topping-out Ceremony, the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Ms Eva Cheng, said, "The new headquarters will enhance internal operational efficiency as well as contribute to better and more efficient service for the aviation industry as all functional divisions of the CAD will be brought under one roof. The CAD new headquarters project is one of our many initiatives to strengthen Hong Kong's competitiveness and its status as an international and regional aviation centre."
