After graduating from Shanghai Jiao Tong University with a degree in civil engineering, Ing worked on major transportation infrastructure projects in northwest and southeast China for the state-run Lung-Hai Railway (now known as Longhai Railway) Management Bureau and the Chuan-Kang Transportation Bureau. The anti-Japanese resistance campaign was at its height.
World War II erupted
Pearl Harbor attacked during World War II
Wei Dah Corporation was established
Ing established his first company, Wei Dah Corporation, the precursor of CEC. Based in Chungking, (also known as Chongqing) its main business was the construction of national defense infrastructure including the Sichuan airport taxiways and military barracks.
World War II ended

India and Pakistan became independent
Nanjing and Taipei offices established
CEC focused on postwar reconstruction from its headquarters in Shanghai and two new branch offices in Nanjing and Taipei. Its main businesses in Nanjing were construction of the airport and post offices.
Branch offices were restructured in the move to Taiwan
CEC’s new headquarters were located on Chongqing South Road in Taipei. During this period, CEC’s business was primarily military contracts – the Hsinchu Airport runway and apron; warehouses, dormitories and mess halls for the Air Force; the Armed Forces Supply Center; US military warehouses; engineering and maintenance facilities; living quarters for the US military; and US military compounds in Taipei, Taichung, Chiayi, and Kaohsiung.

Completed Grand Hotel
CEC’s construction of one of Taipei’s landmarks, the Grand Hotel, in the style of traditional Chinese palace architecture, led to technical innovations including a new underpinning technique to protect adjacent buildings, as well as a ground covering method for slope protection during excavation. The steep slope of the palace-style tiled roof made it necessary to develop new installation techniques. The use of reinforced concrete technology to create a building in the traditional style was widely admired by industry experts.
Bridge building technology from Japan
CEC became the first construction company in Taiwan to use the Freyssinet prestressing method in the construction of the Yuanshan Bridge section of the First Freeway, after sending a team of engineers to Japan to study the technology. The late President Chiang Ching-Kuo visited the site during its construction.
Taiwan President Chiang Kai-Shek passed away
CEC completed the Yuanshan bridge. At 1,452 meters total length, it had the longest span and the largest deck area of any balanced cantilever prestressed concrete bridge in the world at the time. The high quality and timely completion of the bridge brought CEC to the forefront in bridge construction.

APEC was founded
This combined residential and commercial development, located in a hilly area, became Taiwan’s first example of a large-scale residential project that used integrated planning to protect the environmental assets of its woodland site. After the land was acquired, CEC took 15 years to master the technological and design requirements for a project of this quality, at an additional cost of hundreds of millions of New Taiwan dollars. In 2006, The Village was awarded the FIABCI-Taiwan Real Estate Excellence Award – Special Award in the construction quality category. It continues to be regarded as the most forward-looking community development of its type in Taiwan.

The most difficult stretch was the 7.4 km Paghuashan Tunnel. The tunnel was broken through in 22 months, two months ahead of schedule. It set a new time record for tunnel construction. In addition to the time record, the tunnel was a successful example of minimizing environmental damage from construction.
British industry award for C260/C270 projects
CEC was awarded the contract for the C270 section of the Taiwan High Speed Rail Project, which included 43 km of double track viaduct, four river crossings, and the Yunlin Station area. In building continuous viaducts for both the C260 and C270 projects, CEC was the first to use the 30-meter and 35-meter full-span precast launching method, winning recognition from the industry for its ingenuity, quality, and speed. The C260/270 project received the British Construction Industry International Award in 2005.

In order to reach the required strength level, one of the steel columns in the Wuri Station was made of 8 steel H-beams welded together, in contrast to conventional steel columns which use one steel H-beam. A major design challenge was to integrate the station and track supporting structures, making Wuri Station unique among the stations in the Taiwan High Speed Rail Project.
Zuoying Station, Kaohsiung
CEC completed the Taiwan High Speed Rail Station at Zuoying, the only station at grade. Zuoying Station has multiple tracks with a concourse level at the second floor and platforms at ground level.

The Daan Forest Park Station for Taipei MRT
With the completion of the CR580A Contract, a tunnel boring project for the Taipei MRT’s Xinyi Line, CEC’s first tunnel boring project in which it did not work with international technical partners, CEC established itself as Taiwan’s leading tunnel boring machine construction contractor. The project included Daan Station, Daan Forest Park underground station, the stabling track area, and 4.14 km of tunnel boring to connect four stations. It won the Excellence Award in Construction Methods from the Taipei Municipal Government. Daan Forest Park has become a landmark on the Taipei MRT, for the way the station design blends with the natural beauty of its surroundings.
Shan-Li tunnel for Hualien-Taitung railway electrification
CEC completed this project ahead of schedule in March 2012, allowing the electrification of the train in August of 2013. The most technically challenging of four tunnel contracts for electrification of the Hualien-Taitung Railway, the CL314 Shan-Li Railway Tunnel Project was in the southernmost stretch of the project with a total length of 8,210 meters. The scope of work included a 5,300-meter double track tunnel, situated in a difficult to access mountain area, making geological surveys and materials transport difficult. The project encountered heavy storms that destroyed roads and supply lines to the construction site, resulting in additional time and cost to resume work. With the completion of the tunnel and railway project, the total travel time from Taipei to Taitung was reduced from 5 hours to 3.5 hours.
With the booming property market and the reputation for quality that CEC has established over the years, it saw a significant increase in building construction work, leading to a record high US$2.13 billion in work-on-hand as of July 2014.
