The Shek Chung Au Sewage Pumping Station (SCASPS) is constructed following the recommendation made in the 1994 review of the North District Sewerage Master Plan conducted by Environmental Protection Department.  As part of the long-term measures to address the water pollution problem in the North District, the SCASPS helps convey sewage collected from Sha Tau Kok area to Sha Tau Kok Sewage Treatment Works for proper treatment and disposal.

In line with DSD's policy of environmental protection, measures for reducing carbon emissions have also been adopted by this project in an effort to minimize impacts to the environment. For instance, vertical green walls are installed and over 40% of the total roof area is covered by greenery.

Green Features

Site Aspects

  • Landscaping and planters (more than 40% of site area ) including vertical green wall, enriching the livelihood building outlook, reduce the local heat island effect, reduce heat dissipation from building
  • Implement mitigation measures for air, noise and water pollution arising during construction
  • Proactive design consideration to reduce the building equipment noise and light pollution nuisance to neighborhood
  • Proactive approach to achieve greater integration of site planning and design issues in accordance with Urban Design Guidelines
  • Use of pervious materials for a minimum of 50% of hard landscape area to reduce surface runoff

Energy Use

  • Optimized interior lighting design is adopted to reduce energy consumption.
  • Energy reduction by adopting high efficient split-type AC, well insulated envelope and high SC window glazing.
  • Proactive design of structural elements and choice of materials in order to reduce embodied energy.
  • Sustainable energy management by installing separate power meters for MVAC & AC units, outdoor lighting, general lighting & small power and irrigation systems to measure, monitor and further develop measures to improve the performance of the building’s engineering systems.

Water Use

  • High efficient irrigation technology provided to save portable water use
  • Great water saving by installing high-efficient water saving sanitary fittings

Indoor Environmental Quality

  • CCTV monitoring at building entrance is installed to improve security control of the overall plant area and its surroundings
  • Efficient ventilation and deodorizing system are designed to control the source of odour and improve the indoor air quality

Story

DSD is committed to provide world-class wastewater and stormwater drainage services enabling the sustainable development of Hong Kong. Aiming at improving drainage services in an environmentally responsible manner, DSD is strongly motivated to go green in their functional building.

Environmental protection and measures for reducing overall project carbon emissions have been adopted in an effort to minimize impacts to the environment. To enhance the sustainability design, the major green features adopted in this project are highlighted below.

Neighborhood Consideration

  • 40% of the total roof area is covered by greenery and vertical green walls are installed to enrich the livelihood building outlook, reduce the local heat island effect, reduce heat dissipation from building.
  • Effective deodorizing system are installed to control the source of odour and improve the air quality
  • Building equipment and lighting installations are designed and operated to minimize the noise and light pollution nuisance to neighborhood.

Whole Life Cycle Consideration

  • Energy saving features are installed covering optimized lighting layout, high efficient air-conditioning and mechanical ventilation and high performance envelope for solar heat gain reduction.
  • Proactive use of structural elements and choice of materials are adopted to reduce embodied energy.
  • Sustainable energy management by monitoring the different energy consumption profiles of ventilation system, outdoor lighting, general lighting & small power and irrigation systems.
  • High-efficient water saving sanitary fittings are installed and monitored regularly.
  • High efficient irrigation technology provided to save portable water use.

The key project success is to bring a positive impact to the public by DSD’s high devotion in enhancing a green, harmonious and sustainable environment as well as caring of the general public.
