Two construction projects by Taipei's New Construction Office win the 2024 Engineering Excellence Award by the Chinese Institute of Engineers

On June 6, 2024, the Chinese Institute of Engineers held the ceremony for the 2024 “Engineering Excellence Award”. The New Construction Office of the Public Works Department, Taipei City Government received the award for two projects: “Zhongxiao East Road Section 4 Underground Pathway Entrance New Construction Project” and “Nanmen Building and Market Renovation Turnkey Project”.

 

In alignment with the development project for the large indoor sports arena in the Taipei Dome and the overall residential and commercial growth in the surrounding area, the “Zhongxiao East Road Section 4 Underground Pathway Entrance New Construction Project” involves the construction of a new underground pathway. This pathway links various public spaces from north to south, including the Taipei Railway Workshop, Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, Taipei Dome, and National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall. By integrating sports and arts, it offers the public a completely new recreational experience. Following the “pedestrian-oriented” design principle, the project has established a pedestrian-friendly space, mitigating conflicts with ground-level traffic on Zhongxiao East Road and ensuring a pleasant pedestrian environment.

 

The “Nanmen Building and Market Renovation Turnkey Project” adopts top-down construction to shorten the project timeline, successfully facilitating the early return of vendors while reducing the disruptions caused by noise and dust during construction. Valuable suggestions from local community leaders and residents were taken into account and incorporated after careful evaluation, making the new Nanmen Building closely connected to local culture and more convenient for residents. It provides the public with a brand new market that is bright, environmentally-friendly, and optimally utilizes resources.
