No unauthorised building works (UBW)

  • Prior approval of plans and consent to the commencement of works from the Buildings Department (BD) are required before carrying out any alteration or addition works, unless the works are exempted building works or minor works.
  • If the works are designated as minor works under the "Minor Works Control System (MWCS)",the owners may carry out the works in accordance with the simplified requirements of the MWCS.
  • Owners must not erect UBW or carry out building works associated with subdivision of a flat (commonly known as "subdivided units") in contravention of the Buildings Ordinance

Co-operate with the Owners' Corporation (OC)

  • Owners should co-operate with the OC in carrying out inspections, investigations and repair works of their building or in removing UBW in the common parts of the building.

To know more about your building

  • Owners may view the approved plans and records of the completed minor works at the Building Information Centre of BD or on the internet through the BRAVO system to ensure that all the building works have complied with the Buildings Ordinance including ascertainment if there are any UBWs in the premises.

Take the initiative for proper maintenance
