It covers minor building works, fitting out works and minor alterations, additions and improvement works including furniture and equipment replacement incidental to such works, and slope inspections and minor slope improvement works in respect of district facilities under the purview of the DCs.
The DMW Programme has been fully launched in the 18 Districts since January 2008 and well received by the local residents.
HAD and LCSD are the lead departments in implementing DMW projects with HAD being responsible for minor works related to community halls and improvement to living environment and hygienic conditions of the district; and LCSD being responsible for minor works related to leisure, cultural, sports, soft landscaping and recreation type of facilities. DMW projects are implemented by works agents such as HAD, LCSD, ArchSD and EMSD as well as term consultants.
Up to December of 2020, about 6800 DMW facilities have been completed in the territory and the total expenditure was over $4 billion.
