Statutory advice is required for each project to comply with local regulation. There are cases statutory submission is required that corresponding professionals have to be engaged. Advanced planning is necessary as there are always time and cost implications.
Leaded by our in-house registered professionals and collaboration with other local bodies, we ensure compliance of local regulation for all projects, and arrange statutory submission whenever not avoidable.
Apart from statutory submission, compliance with regulation during construction stage is also essential for each project. We do not only have professionals at consultancy side, we are also registered contractors in Hong Kong and China that we understand well what have to be complied with throughout the entire project period.
