Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, Hong Kong

Hong Kong Unveils New Cruise Terminal

Flowcrete Hong Kong is proud to have been involved in a landmark construction project at East Kowloon's new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.

Gleaming silver and representing an area roughly a half-mile long, the new terminal building designed by architects Foster + Partners, features a two berth dock capable of handling liners of up to 220,000 gross registered tonnage and processing more than 3,000 passengers an hour.

Inside, the terminal features airy check-in, immigration and waiting halls as well as retail and dining facilities alongside a vast rooftop garden offering panoramic views of the Hong Kong skyline.

Over 40,000 square metres of Flowcrete's cementitious subfloor screed system, Isocrete Heavy Duty K-Screed, have been applied to serve as a surface underlayment within the main terminal facility prior to the application of tiles.

Flowcrete's heavy-duty screed system, in thicknesses ranging from 40-60mm, has been installed in the customs, clearance and departure halls as well in baggage handling area, back-of-house maintenance facilities and the overhead rooftop garden. Isocrete Heavy Duty K-Screed is a robust, semi-dry cementitious screed system incorporating a proprietary K additive to produce an early drying, high-strength screed allowing for the early installation of moisture sensitive floor finishes or floor coverings. The material is recommended for areas where heavy foot or wheeled traffic is expected on a continual basis.

10,000 square metres of a second Flowcrete system, Flowcoat SF41 - a seamless epoxy floor coating material - has also been used to provide a hardwearing and slip-resistant floor finish in specialist back-ofhouse maintenance and baggage handling areas.
